Garth Brooks debuted this breezy acoustic country tune on the Facebook page of Good Morning America's Robin Roberts after the broadcaster asked when we could expect new music from him. The song is a message of unity in which Garth states that "no wall can divide us," "no storm can untie us," and we're "all leaves on the same tree." It is love that binds us together.
After Brooks shared the song, he posted on his Facebook page: "Music is the greatest healer and also the greatest equalizer. A lot of people have asked how I feel about what is going on in the world right now... and music is where I turn to answer that question - We Belong to Each Other, We are Sister and Brother... ALL OF US. We must not divide, but unite," Brooks wrote in a Facebook post of his own."
Garth Brooks laid down the song live without the help of multi-track layering at a new studio on his Nashville complex. He explained during an episode of Inside Studio G that it marked his first time recording there. "I just love how that track feels," the country star added, calling the song a "performance piece."
"The room felt so good, the vibe felt so good," he said. "I gotta tell ya, it's the greatest cut because of this."
Stereo from CaliforniaThis song is awful. Garth can't write and as usual he has to have help making a good song. It's sad that he would try and profit on such a divided issue but then he's always leaned towards the left on political views.
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
