Garth Brooks sent his new cover of “Shallow” with Trisha Yearwood to country radio at 4 a.m. CT on Oct. 22. The tune is available exclusively on Amazon Music. The new single’s official add date at country radio is Nov. 2.
“Shallow” will be included on Garth’s new album, Fun, which drops on Nov. 20.
Penned by Lady Gaga, Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson for the 2018 movie, A Star is Born, “Shallow” was recorded as a duet by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The tune garnered widespread critical acclaim and netted numerous awards.
Before recording the song for Fun, Garth and Trisha performed “Shallow” during his Facebook Live series, Inside Studio G, in March, with an encore during their CBS TV special a few days later on April 1.
“It just—everything kind of lit up,” says Garth. “And, you know, in this business everything lights up, and then it goes away. [“Shallow”] did not go away. It just kept lighting up and lighting up. So we went ahead and, per the people, tried it for the new record. This record’s crazy! So it is officially going to be the single off the record coming up.”
Garth has already shared a number of songs from Fun, including “That’s What Cowboys Do,” “The Road I’m On,” “Courage of Love,” “Party Gras,” “All Day Long,” “Stronger Than Me” and “Dive Bar.”
