Garth Brooks Selects Next Single, ‘Ask Me How I Know’
Garth Brooks has announced his next single: The country superstar is sending his song “Ask Me How I Know” to country radio; it will officially be going for adds on March 27.
Written by Mitch Rossell, “Ask Me How I Know” is Track No. 3 on Brooks’ most recent studio album, Gunslinger. The song finds its narrator cautioning someone — a friend, a child, a stranger in a bar — that “one day, you’ll meet the girl you swore you’d never find … You’ll push her away ’cause that’s all you know how to do … Ask me how I know.”
“Go on and shake your head and tell me that I’m wrong / Say I’m just another fool, and this is just another song,” Brooks sings in the second verse of “Ask Me How I Know.” “But I know how you are ’cause I know how I am / And I’d give anything to go back and try again …
“And you best put this song on repeat,” he adds. “Maybe then you won’t end up like me.”
“Ask Me How I Know” is Brooks’ second single from Gunslinger; it follows “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” released in October.
