Garth Brooks released his new song “Only Country Music,” launched on his new TuneIn radio station, The Big 615. The song was written by Brooks and Nashville songwriters Ashley Gorley and Matt Rossi.

Brooks says Only Country Music was just recently recorded: “In the middle of [beta testing the channel] as recently as three weeks ago, came an idea from Ashely Gorley sitting right down with Matt Rossi, and he says, ‘I want to write a song that just if you’re looking for something, hey, that’s only country music … And he just started in and the first thing — he’s sitting right there on the couch 50 feet away from where we’re sitting, and he goes, ‘Where else can you say Jesus and Jack Daniels in one line?’ I said, ‘I’m in.’ So it’s really good, man, and only country music. I really enjoyed — I think the track’s screaming. It’s a lot of fun… When you hear it, you go, ‘Okay, that’s what it is. It’s country music.’ So I love it!’”

Brooks described the song as feeling “traditional Garth” and features vocals from wife Trisha Yearwood: “We had her [Tricia] doing both harmonies here because it was too high for me. I’m playing Vegas and I’m going, ‘You know what? Just get your ass back in the studio and reach those notes. Get after it.’ And so I came back in and now it feels more like the traditional Garth thing with her and I.”
