Garth Brooks revealed “Baby, Let’s Lay Down And Dance” as the first single from his upcoming 11th studio album set to be released later this year by Pearl Records, Inc. Available now at Country radio, the uptempo track embodies Brooks’ unmatched energy and trademark sound, while remaining undeniably timeless.
“’Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance’ was just a fun title that Kent Blazy has had in his book of titles forever, always threatening to write it,” said Brooks. “So one day Kim, Kent and I sat down and wrote it. We got a little help from Steve Dorff and then Victoria Shaw finished it. In the middle of this, Kim Williams passed away. I’ve got to tell you, I love love love this song, but probably my greatest joy is the fact that this is a Kim Williams song. Not only did it make this record, it’s the first single off this record.”
Written by Brooks and long-time collaborators and friends Victoria Shaw (“The River”), Kent Blazy (“If Tomorrow Never Comes”), Kim Williams (“Papa Loved Mama”) and Steve Dorff, the new track will also be part of an innovative campaign kicking off today at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. As part of a partnership with Frito-Lay, Brooks will launch the new single with a download code on a select number of Fritos corn chips bags giving fans first access to the song today.
Earlier this week on “Inside Studio G,” Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood also shared that their first-ever collaborative album CHRISTMAS TOGETHER will be available to fans beginning Nov. 11. The new collection will feature duets, solo performances and special guests.
