Garth Brooks‘ classic “Friends in Low Places” might be getting a new life, thanks to some of country’s biggest stars.
Billboard is reporting Brooks has recruited George Strait, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Keith Urban to record a new version of his 1990 hit. So far, Brooks has not officially addressed the rumors of this new collaborative project. According to Taste of Country, Brooks revealed he had “been revisiting old friends and making new friends” during a tour break back in August.
When it was first released, “Friends in Low Places” spent four weeks on top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and went on to win Song of the Year at the ACM and CMA Awards in 1990. It quickly became a fan favorite, partially due to the more explicit third verse Brooks played during live shows. The infamous verse was later recorded for his Double Live album in 1998.
Brooks will continue his massive world tour with wife Trisha Yearwood in Dallas Sept. 17. The country star is set to play seven straight shows while he’s in Dallas, at the American Airlines Center. After that, Brooks will continue his tour with multiple dates in Milwaukee, Cleveland and Phoenix. Additional tour dates are expected to be announced over the coming weeks.
