Garth Brooks wanted to pick a special day to release his new album. Two special and symbolic dates for him - Mother's Day and Father's Day had to be passed over, as well as July 4.
The album simply was not ready, and it looks like it will not be ready until fall. The official statement is that "no album will be released before its time."
Garth wants this album to stand up beside all the rest of his work, and will continue to work patiently on it until the time when it is ready to be released to his fans.
