During the CMA Music Festival Brookes mentioned to those in attendance what he has planned for the future, starting with his new single, which will be released on June 18th. Brookes kept most of the details to himself, including the title of the song, but told fans it is going to be pretty darn country. Brookes says he was inspired after performing at the 2018 Country Radio Seminar, during a set in a Broadway honky-tonk, he went on to say “We were playing all the stuff that we used to play in the honky-tonks, and hearing it bounce off those brick walls, and hearing those people sing along, I said, ‘You know what? What we need is a good damn honky-tonk song.’ So that’s what we went to do.” This music may be a change from what Brookes has been known for but our best bet is to hang on for the ride and see where it takes us, and once the album is released be sure to let us know what you think.
Along with the release of new music, it appears Brookes has a new tour planned, but the details will be released July 9th, Brookes only said that it’s “the biggest thing I’ve ever done on the road,” could this possibly be a world tour, guess we will have to wait and see on July 9th.
The last news that Brookes shared with fans was that new live music is likely coming, Brookes said this new live music would more of a thank you to fans saying “Now you’re finally getting to hear it the way I heard it every night.” I love his take on this new live music, not only seeing it as a way to share what he loves but also to showcase fans’ passion and enthusiasm that he gets to experience and thank them for it, and now we can share that with him through this new live music.
