Hear Garth Brooks’ ‘People Loving People’; adds Jacksonville stop

Garth Brooks has released his highly-anticipated new single, “People Loving People,” to country radio today (Sept 3rd). Scheduled for impact on September 8th, the song is written by busbee, Lee Thomas Miller and Chris Wallin.

The track, sonically similar to today’s country, is surely going to grab attention with it’s uplifting lyrics. In the vein of Brooks’ “We Shall Be Free,” which sparked controversy upon its release in 1992, the track encourages people to embrace one another.

The chorus to “People Loving People” reads:

“People loving people / That’s the enemy of everything’s that evil / Ain’t no quick fix at the end of a needle / It’s just people loving people”

While singles are usually released to radio on Mondays and Tuesdays, there’s a “sevens” relationship today. The release comes seven years and seven days since his last single, “More Than A Memory,” was released on August 27, 2007. It debuted at #1 the same week, an unprecedented feat that can only be tied.

“People Loving People” is the first single off of Brooks’s previously announced forthcoming studio album, to be released on Pearl/RCA Nashville on or around Black Friday.
