SHARE Garth Brooks reveals tracks from upcoming album

Garth Brooks’s new album, “Man Against Machine” debuts Nov. 11. Today in Nashville, he gave the media a glimpse of what to expect, releasing the full track list and sampling the 14 cuts. reports that the artist became hugely emotional when he delivered “Mom,” (written by Don Sampson and Wynn Varble), perhaps the most personal cut on the album:

One song in particular meant more than any other, and it was the only track of the 11 played from the album that he chose to grab his guitar and perform live with. Everyone knows how much I loved my mom, he said, pausing to take a deep breath. Why no one has ever written this song before I don’t know, why I never wrote it before I don’t know, but I’m grateful Don Sampson and Wynn Varble did. It’s a conversation between God and a little unborn baby. It took me almost a month to get it together to record it. My producer finally told me to man up and do it. I’m gonna try to do it for you now. By the time Brooks finished Mom, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
