“Ask Me How I Know”
Written by Mitch Rossell
Garth Brooks has been hit or miss with his material since returning from his long hiatus, but this is a great song and he performs it well. Yes, the chorus gets a bit too loud, resulting in a bit of vocal strain that can easily pass for intense emotion.
But it’s a strong performance overall, and the verses in particular reminded me of just how good a singer Brooks is.
Still, even the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year isn’t shielded from the ageism and mediocre taste of country radio. I hope they give this record a chance, but I’m not optimistic.
