Garth Brooks Signs Music Streaming Deal with Amazon 

By slateronk923

For the first time ever, you can stream selections from Garth Brooks’ huge musical catalog via the new Amazon Music Unlimited platform.MusicRow reports that the country icon’s new single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” from his forthcoming album Gunslinger is now available on the platform, as are 2007’s The Ultimate Hits and 1998’s Double Live. Later this year, Amazon will add the rest of Gunslinger‘s track list, as well as his new holiday album with wife Trisha Yearwood, Christmas Together. However, Brooks will still be selling only digital downloads of full albums, not individual tracks. “What I love about Amazon is that when you sit down and explain to them how a songwriter makes their living, they got it,” Brooks tells Billboard. “So they know that, hey man, this is an album artist, protect the album.”
