    great older songs to be singels

    I remember Garth saying before that if he were to release a 5th single from his debut album it would be Alabama Clay.
    This got me thinking: Can an artist still release singles from older albums that are relavent to this day in age? I believe Garth has a number of qualifying great songs from past albums that would be great singles in this day in age.

    1. Alabama Clay
    2. Burning Bridges
    3.Allison Miranda
    4. The Night I Called The Old Man Out
    5. New Way To Fly
    6.In Lonesome Dove
    7.Take The Keys To my Heart
    8. Last Night i Had The Strangest Dream
    9.When There is no One Around
    10. The Cowboy Song
    11. How You Ever Gonna Know
    12. A friend To me
    13. No Body Gets Off in This Town
    14. Against The Grain
    15.pushing Up Daises
    16.fit For A King
    17.Mr. Midnight
    18. Cowboy cadaliac
    19.Why Aint i Running
    20. you Move Me
    21. Victum of the game

    some good choices, some not so good ones IMO.. won't nit pick as it's all an opinion.. don't know if it's possible -heck 'm sure its POSSIBLE, anything (almost) is, but honestly.. with the type of country that I hear (when I can stomach it) on the radio nowadays... I can't see any of these songs prospering at radio.. a great mix though of some unappreciated gems...

    He released Wild Horses as a single later on in his career, so of course it's possible.

    I think, sadly, these are great songs that fall into the category of Whiskey to Wine that he talked about on the last Studio G that would never get played on country radio today. I love listening to the 100 Greatest Garth Brooks Songs on Amazon Music and hearing all these songs being played on a random playlist.

    Obviously not an older album, but I always thought the singles for Man Against Machine should've went:

    1. All American Kid
    2. Tacoma
    3. Cold Like That
    4. She's Tired of Boys

    Unfortunately, we got none of the above.
