Garth Brooks Finally Available For Streaming, But Only If You Are An Amazon Unlimited Subscriber

by VVN Music

Last week, Amazon jumped fully into the subscription music service fray with Amazon Music Unlimited.

The new service is a step up from their Amazon Prime service which comes with Prime membership. Prime gives members access to two million songs where Unlimited has "tens of millions".

As of today, those Unlimited subscribers have one more special benefit, the Garth Brooks catalog.

Brooks, who is the biggest selling solo artists in U.S. recording history, has been reluctant to allow his music to be streamed.  He dipped his foot in the water a couple of years back with his own service but that never really took off so Garth has signed with the fledgling service from one of the world's biggest companies.

To start everything off, Brooks has made available his new single, Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance, from his upcoming new studio album, Gunslinger, in addition to Garth’s Diamond-selling album, The Ultimate Hits and the two-time Diamond-selling album, Double Live. Additional music will be added to Amazon Music Unlimited later this year, including his upcoming new holiday album with his wife and country star Trisha Yearwood, Christmas Together, and his highly anticipated upcoming studio album, Gunslinger, his first since 2014.

Brooks said "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. I applaud Amazon on their commitment to quality and thank them for this opportunity."

Steve Boom, vice president of Amazon, added "This is a landmark moment for both Amazon Music and Garth Brooks. Garth Brooks is a legendary country music superstar who continues to shatter industry records and amaze fans three decades into his career. We are honored to make his music available for streaming for the first time ever, exclusively on Amazon Music."

At this point, it is unknown how long the exclusive agreement will be in place.
