Garth Brooks is back with the first single from his forthcoming, 11th studio album. If “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance” sounds like classic Garth, it’s likely because it’s a collaboration between the writers of mega-hits like “The River,” “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” and “Papa Loved Mama.”
“[It] was just a fun title that Kent Blazy has had in his book of titles forever, always threatening to write it,” Garth says of how the song started. “So one day, Kim [Williams], Kent and I sat down and wrote it. We got a little help from Steve Dorff and then Victoria Shaw finished it. In the middle of this, Kim Williams passed away. I’ve got to tell you. I love love love this song, but probably my greatest joy is the fact that this is a Kim Williams song.”
You can download “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance” for free by purchasing one of the specially marked bags of Fritos with Garth’s picture on the package.
