I found an interview between Garth and Larry King. Here are Garth's words about iTunes: KING: Why do you not go on iTunes?
BROOKS: Yes, and I never spoke to Steve. Eddie is -- you know Eddie is the guy that runs that place, and I think Eddie represents them well, and Eddie represents himself well. Good people. They -- they sell iPods. That's what they do.
So they can talk all day that iTunes is a store for music, but iTunes is a marketing arm of the iPod. So they sell singles. That's what iPods do. And so I asked them, I just want album only. I don't want singles.
Because you make an album for a reason and that album is a reflection of who the artist is at that time. And what I love about albums, let's take "No Fences", for example, for us, that has friends in low places and thunder rolls on it.
But it also has a song called "Wolves" on it, that's way too not commercial for radio, but changes people's lives when they hear it. Well, I think that's important too.
