Almost Time for Brooks/Jones ‘Beer Run’

Apparently, the recent Garth Brooks/George Jones recording session went very well. Brooks has scheduled a press conference Sept. 17 at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville to talk about their duet, “Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?),” and about his upcoming album. A media advisory suggests that the song will be “delivered to country radio” on the same day. Brooks announced his retirement last year but promised one more album. The new track will appear on the album, his first collection of new studio recordings in four years (following 1997’s Sevens). “Beer Run” also is slated to appear on George Jones’ upcoming CD, The Rock, now scheduled for release Oct. 2. 08/30/01
