Garth Brooks Postponed His Live Album Preview After Injuring His Hand in a Farming Accident

Garth Brooks fans, hold onto your hats: The country star just announced that he’s hosting a live interactive preview of his new albums FUN and Triple Live Deluxe. Head to Talk Shop Live on October 26 at 7 p.m. EST to check it out!

The live interactive preview was supposed to take place on Wednesday, October 21, but Brooks shared on Twitter that he had to reschedule the anticipated preview. A statement from his publicist revealed the country star had injured his left hand while working on his farm in Tennessee.

“Hey everybody, Mr. and Ms. Yearwood here,” Brooks said in a video posted to Twitter. “Saying sorry we have to reschedule to the 26th, Monday, 'Inside Studio G,' usual time. We'll do the 'Talk Shop Live' then with the Queen. Hopefully, everything will be great, we'll be able to play the guitar, it will be good.”

In a statement, Brooks shared that he attempted to play the guitar following the accident, but he wasn't able to. “I kept trying—all the way up to showtime—to play, thinking that it was going to eventually get better. And then finally just had to give in to the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to play for tonight’s show,” he said. “Hopefully Monday everything will be better, and we’ll be right back up running again.”

Yearwood joked that, if not, she would be on the guitar. “You don't want that,” she said with a laugh.

Earlier this year, Brooks pushed the release date of the long-anticipated albums due to the coronavirus pandemic, but he recently shared on Instagram that fans can finally hear the star’s new music on November 20, when FUN and Triple Live Deluxe hit shelves and streaming services. On Monday, Brooks made the announcement on Instagram. “We ALL need some #FUN!!!!” he wrote in an Instagram post.

Unsurprisingly, fans went off in the comments section, thrilled about the news they’ve been waiting to hear since Brooks pushed his release date from 2019. “Finally!! It’s happening, people!! 🎶,” one fan wrote. “Can’t wait for that new album!!” another added.

“We’re going to put both records on tomorrow for anybody that might want them,” Brooks said in an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday. The country star also announced that he and wife Trisha Yearwood’s studio cover of A Star Is Born’s “Shallow” made his album.

Brooks said they decided to record the Oscar-winning song after their original Facebook Live cover of “Shallow” went viral last spring.

“Everything kind of lit up, and in this business everything lights up and then it goes away. This did not go away,” he said. “It just kept lighting up and lighting up, so we went ahead and, per the people, tried it for the new record.”

“And, man, I got to tell you, I always thought Bradley Cooper and I had a lot in common. Now I know we do,” he added. “We both understand that a great song is just finding a great female singer and Gaga is one of the greatest. Miss Yearwood is one of the greatest... so it is officially going to be the single off the record coming up.”

Brooks said his fans are going to get the chance to hear at least a snippet of the song tonight, but he also shared they may just play the whole song.

Pre-order a copy of FUN and Triple Live Deluxe to enjoy them on November 20.
