Garth Brooks Selects Next Single, ‘Ask Me How I Know’
Garth Brooks has announced his next single: The country superstar is sending his song "Ask Me How I Know" to country radio; it will officially be going for adds on March 27.
Written by Mitch Rossell, "Ask Me How I Know" is Track No. 3 on Brooks' most recent studio album, Gunslinger. The song finds its narrator cautioning someone -- a friend, a child, a stranger in a bar -- that "one day, you'll meet the girl you swore you'd never find ... You'll push her away 'cause that's all you know how to do ... Ask me how I know."
"Go on and shake your head and tell me that I'm wrong / Say I'm just another fool, and this is just another song," Brooks sings in the second verse of "Ask Me How I Know." "But I know how you are 'cause I know how I am / And I'd give anything to go back and try again ...
"And you best put this song on repeat," he adds. "Maybe then you won't end up like me."
"Ask Me How I Know" is Brooks' second single from Gunslinger; it follows “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” released in October.
Brooks is currently out on the road on his World Tour, which began in September of 2014. On Friday (March 17), he will be speaking at SXSW 2017.
