Brooks goes "Triple Live," plays Notre Dame
Monday, August 27, 2018
– Garth Brooks announced today he will release a triple live CD this fall, but he said fans can enjoy a fan-mixed offer of the set for free through Ticketmaster.
At a press conference today, Brooks also announced the date - Oct. 20 - of the first country show ever at Notre Dame Stadium.
After three years on the road, 6 million tickets sold 'Triple Live' is coming to retail this fall," Brooks said on his website. The 26-song set will contain more than 100 minutes of music.
"The fan-mixed version can be yours absolutely free today," Brooks said.
"I guarantee it's going to take you right back there," Brooks said of the release.
Brooks said fans can hear more of the fan reaction or more of the band playing with the mix. "You can choose to be in the middle of thousands of voices singing every word or rush right up on stage and hear the concert the way the band and I do."

CD reviews for Garth Brooks
If naming your release "Gunslinger," you'd better let it rip and go for a harder country sound, especially if donning a black cowboy hat on the cover. The reality does not exactly match that sentiment for Garth Brooks, but at times he comes mighty close.
The high points for Brooks are the three most traditional country songs - a couple of honky tonkers ("Honky-Tonk Somewhere" and "Cowboys and Friends") and a ballad ("Whiskey to Wine"). »»»

And it's quite an undertaking - four CDs of covers - Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot, an amalgam of country, rock, soul and folk; the two-CD set, "The Ultimate Set" and a DVD of his live performance in Vegas. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
