Garth Brooks confirmed at this year's CMA Fest that he had a new single on the way. He followed up the news by teasing the track on social media Monday night with a segment on his Facebook Live show "Inside Studio G" and a trailer on Instagram. Now, the new song, "All Day Long," is available online and is busy being queued up on country music radio station playlists across the U.S.
Even from just hearing the short spurt of the song on Instagram where Brooks sings "I can do this nightlife all day long," it's clear that the track will be an energetic summer hit that will easily fill a stadium with electric excitement, making it a perfect jam for an effervescent country star like Brooks. But even though the booming track is ready to take over arenas, it has more humble beginnings.
Brooks stated that the song was inspired by a small gig he played at Layla's, a honky-tonk in Nashville, in February where he realized how much he missed playing smaller, a bit more divey, venues. "From the very first lick, this song is a party," Brooks said about the tune on "Inside Studio G." "Country radio, uptempo honky-tonk and summer go so good together!" He also describes the track as a combination of his previous hits "Two of a Kind (Workin' on a Full House)," "Ain't Goin' Down (Til the Sun Comes Up)' and "Callin' Baton Rouge."
"All Day Long" can be streamed on Amazon Music or downloaded as part of Brooks's upcoming album that will come out in 2019. If you opt for the limited time $10 pre-order of the new album, you'll receive an immediate download of his single "The Road I'm On," as well, hopefully tiding you over until the new record comes out next year.
