Garth Brooks will be giving fans “something from every era of country music” with his just-announced 14th studio album, Time Traveler. This 10-track project was produced by Brooks and is slated to appear in the country icon’s new seven-disc boxed set, The Limited Series.
Time Traveler marks the third and final release of this boxed set. The previous two were unveiled in 1998 and 2005. The Limited Series will include Man Against Machine, Gunslinger, Fun and the three-disc Triple Live.
“There are a lot of different eras on this album, thus the name. Country music’s core is sincerity, after that, you can dress it up a thousand different ways. I am so lucky to live under the flag of Country Music,” Garth Brooks shared of the new collection.
Fans will be able to get their hands on The Limited Series when it goes on sale exclusively at Bass Pro Shops on November 7, but for now, it is available for pre-order HERE. Orders purchased online will ship mid-November.
The release of the Oklahoma native’s new music comes just a few weeks before the grand opening of Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk, his three-story entertainment concept and bar named after his signature hit. Since he purchased the 40,000+ square foot property back in December 2021 via 411, LLC, fans, locals and those visiting Lower Broadway in Downtown Nashville have eagerly watched the building process.
Now, the time has finally come for the lower Broadway’s newest addition to welcome its first round of music lovers. On Black Friday (Nov. 24), a limited number of fans will have the opportunity to attend the Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk Dive Bar Concert. The only way into the concert will be to win tickets by listening to The BIG 615 station on TuneIn.
Those wishing to participate will need to enter by November 10 at 11:59pm CT on tunein.com/divebar during a designated hourly window or see the official rules for an alternate entry method.
According to a press release, this new station is geared towards providing listeners with an authentic take on country music by showcasing music from the biggest songs and the biggest artists today. All this content is live on TuneIn, which amplifies country radio around the world to more than 75 million listeners across 122 countries.
“I believe that country music listeners want to hear the latest from George Strait followed by the latest from Luke Combs. The latest from Ashley McBryde followed by the latest from The Chicks,” Brooks shared back in June.
“The BIG 615 station is purely for the love of country music,” he continued. “We lean a bit more traditional at the BIG 615. We are proud of how the station sounds and want the entire world to hear what we think is the greatest format of all…Country Music.”
Storme Warren, former lead radio personality on SiriusXM’s The Highway, serves as the host of The BIG 615.
In addition to all the exciting projects and grand openings on the way, Garth Brooks is preparing to begin a new run of his Las Vegas residency, Garth Brooks/Plus ONE at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. His first run at the Colosseum opened in May and ran through July. Now, that 2024 dates are already on sale, this stint of showstopping performances will return on November 29 and continue into the new year with dates scheduled through July 13.
Last year, Garth Brooks wrapped up his three-and-a-half-year-long Stadium Tour, which drew an average of more than 95 thousand people in each city and was seen by a cumulative audience of nearly three million people. The tour ended in September of 2022 when “The Thunder Rolls“ singer played his fifth sold-out concert at Dublin, Ireland’s Croke Park at over 80,000 tickets sold each night.
