FUN will feature 14 tracks, including “Dive Bar” with Blake Shelton and a cover of “Shallow” with Trisha Yearwood.

“I mean, there’s a reason why we named it ‘FUN’ because every time you were in the studio, and this house been going on for a year and a half, so every time you were in the studio, people go, how’s it going? You go, it’s really fun,’” Brooks explained when discussing the album prior to the Billboard Music Awards.

Triple Live Deluxe marks the first time Brooks is releasing a standalone album of Triple Live. The album covers three and a half years of the record-breaking Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood as well as tracks from the record-shattering Stadium Tour. The project will include 30 tracks over three CDs and will be released in a slim jewel case. Six different album covers will be available, each with a booklet and photos from the road.
