          Garth Brooks Loves Honky Tonks! Garth Brooks’ brand new single, “All Day Long,” was born out of his fondness of playing honky-tonks. It’s been many years since Garth has played that circuit on a regular basis, but he had occasion to do so one night earlier this year in Nashville, and the memories came flooding back. The air was beer-soaked and electric when Garth Brooks strolled into Layla’s Honky Tonk on Lower Broadway in February. It was late at night when Brooks took the stage for the invite-only show, and he spent well over an hour rolling out his biggest hits for the intimate audience.

                The District in the New York Times
