Have You Heard Garth Brooks Is Remaking One of His Biggest Hits?
Let’s hope Garth Brooks has some friends in high places as well as low.
The good news: Garth Brooks is going to be REMAKING his worldwide, genre destroying, friends-based anthem “Friends in Low Places” in honor of the song’s 25th anniversary. The remake is also said to include the missing third verse that appeared on Brooks’ live album. (If you haven’t already heard his live album, you need to go find it. I’m refusing to ruin the surprise for you.) “Friends in Low Places” was originally released in August of 1990. The remake is rumored to include vocal appearances from George Straight, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean to name a few country stars. This news has had us chomping at the bit since we heard about it.
The bad news: There has been a snag.
Turns out that Brooks jumped the gun on the concept and hadn’t fully considered the copyright, royalty and legal issues before starting the project. The release of the project is now delayed and while negotiations are happening, operations are at a halt. Brooks, always a gentleman and an honest fellow, admits right away that the blame falls squarely on his shoulders. “This is 100% my fault,” said Brooks.
The positive news is that EVERYONE wants to make this work out and the remake will inevitably happen. So, I suppose the real winners in this situation would be us!
