Amazon today announced that music from the best-selling solo artist in U.S. history, Garth Brooks, is now available to stream exclusively on Amazon Music.
This is the first time ever that music from the first and only artist to receive seven Diamond awards for seven individual albums from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is available to stream on-demand.
Starting today, Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers can stream the latest single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” from his upcoming new studio album, Gunslinger (Pearl Records, Inc.), in addition to Garth’s Diamond-selling album, The Ultimate Hits and the two-time Diamond-selling album, Double Live, which includes “Friends in Low Places,” “The Dance,” “Papa Loved Mama,” “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” “Unanswered Prayers,” “The River,” “Ain’t Goin’ Down (‘Til the Sun Comes Up),” “Two Pina Coladas,” “Shameless,” and “The Thunder Rolls.” All songs on Double Live will also be available on Prime Music.
More music from the multi-GRAMMY award-winning and Billboard award-winning artist will be added to Amazon Music Unlimited later this year, including his upcoming new holiday album with his wife and country star Trisha Yearwood titled, Christmas Together (Pearl Records, Inc.), and his highly anticipated upcoming studio album, Gunslinger, the first since 2014, which features the new single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” released just last week. Rolling Stone called the single an “upbeat country tune with Southern rock-inspired guitar riffs has a timeless sound.” The new song is streaming, as of today, exclusively on Amazon Music Unlimited.
“It is a joy to work with a company that is all about the customer when it comes to service, and all about the music and its creators when it comes to the music,” stated Garth Brooks. “I applaud Amazon on their commitment to quality and thank them for this opportunity.”
The genre-spanning collection of Garth’s music, including studio albums and compilation albums, are also available for purchase and digital download in MP3 format exclusively on Amazon Music. Amazon Music Unlimited will also be the official sponsor of Garth Brooks current record-breaking tour, which will go worldwide in 2017.
Launched last week, Amazon Music Unlimited is available on all Amazon Music compatible devices at a breakthrough price of $7.99/month or $79/year for Prime members (which is $6.58/month) or $9.99/month for non-Prime customers.
