Brooks to Announce Movie Project

Garth Brooks may be slowing his music career this year, but his movie career will be kicking into full swing. Brooks’ production company, Red Strokes Entertainment, will announce its first project in a week or so, the singer told reporters backstage at Sunday’s (Jan. 7) People’s Choice Awards. The movie won’t be the Chris Gaines feature The Lamb, reports the Associated Press. “The Lamb is still Paramount’s baby,” Brooks said. “If Paramount says we’re going forward with this … if they’re crazy enough to let me do the soundtrack, I’ll go back in and do it, even though it’s [the Chris Gaines album] the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Garth Brooks in … The Life of Chris Gaines, released in 1999, is Brooks’ slowest-selling album to date, only moving about 1 million copies. The singer had better luck with his latest movie-related project, the single “When You Come Back to Me Again.” The song, featured in the Dennis Quaid film Frequency, was recently nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Brooks said he still plans to put out his last studio album this year, shooting for a May or June release, the AP reports.
