Still can’t find Garth Brooks on Spotify?
Spotify is the biggest digital music and podcast app but it still lacks some of the biggest artists.
Some artists just don’t like Spotify, mainly because of their artist compensation policies. Artists earn more from their album’s physical sales or downloads and Spotify only pays royalties to artists based on the artist’s “market share” [the number of streams for their songs as a proportion of total songs streamed on the service].
Garth Brooks is one of them.
Even Spotify itself doesn’t know why Garth Brooks is still not on this platform.
And many users are also asking this question on various social platforms.
The country star Garth Brooks has sold the most solo albums in the United States but has never put any of his albums on any of the music streaming platforms. Until 2016, Amazon somehow convinced Garth Brook to release his album on Amazon Music Unlimited.
Garth, when he met with the SEO of the Spotify, said:
“Spotify came in, Daniel Ek came down to sit with me, sweet man, I love Daniel, the great guy. I think he gets a lot of crap. His parents were both street musicians- he’s a good guy who understands music, and I think he wants to help and believes 100 percent he’s helping.”
Garth Brooks values radio play which even helped him in his early career. Garth has mainly 2 objections to the music streaming services:
- He believes that these services don’t pay enough to those who create content.
- And that many people are using these sites for free, a form of stealing from artists who work hard to produce such content.
So if you want his music, you have to purchase a CD of his song. It will take you back to the golden era trust me.
But many users are asking that will he ever change his mind?
Tell me, do you want him on Spotify or do you like the old CD fashion?
Will Garth Brooks ever be on Spotify?
As Garth’s songs are exclusively licensed so Spotify doesn’t have the necessary rights to include his songs in this streaming service. Only if Garth changes his mind.
Why doesn’t Garth Brooks stream his music?
Well, what can we say, he’s the singer and it’s his choice, he doesn’t want to “get typecast“.
He loves doing concerts when people connect with him. He doesn’t want to sit in his studios and distribute his recordings digitally.
