Garth Brooks just revealed some exciting news about his upcoming albums.

The Grammy Award-winning singer, 58, announced he is hosting a live interactive preview of his albums "FUN" and "Triple Live Deluxe" on Wednesday. The new albums are both out Nov. 20.

Fans will get a chance to hear Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood's cover of "Shallow," a highly anticipated track from his new album, "FUN," during the live preview event.

"We're going to put both records on tomorrow for anybody that might want them," he said during an appearance on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

"We're going to show it on GarthBrooks.com starting at 7 ET," he added. "You just tune in to GarthBrooks.com, and we are going to walk through it and probably play that and just take some questions."

He said he and his country superstar wife decided to cover "Shallow" from "A Star is Born" for the album because of how much fans loved it after they performed it on his Facebook live show.

"Everything kind of lit up, and in this business everything lights up and then it goes away. This did not go away," he said about the cover. "It just kept lighting up and lighting up, so we went ahead and, per the people, tried it for the new record."

"And, man, I got to tell you, I always thought Bradley Cooper and I had a lot in common. Now I know we do," he added with a laugh. "We both understand that a great song is just finding a great female singer and Gaga is one of the greatest. Miss Yearwood is one of the greatest ... so it is officially going to be the single off the record coming up."

Brooks also spoke about how much sharing new music has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It puts you one-on-one with people right there in their own living room, where we're all the most comfortable anyway, so it's more like a conversation than it is a show," he said about livestreamed sessions with his fans.

The singer is hoping "FUN" will bring some much-needed light to his supporters during this time.

"The problem is, how do you have fun when the whole world is kind of going through what they're going through? So we put this off and put this off and, you know what, I just think it's time that we smiled a little bit," he shared. "It's probably the happiest record I've ever got to do."

He also noted how much he can't wait to get back to live shows and connecting with his listeners in person. "Man, you talk about the thing you miss in this time, I think we all miss what we get to do and I sure miss getting to play music right now," he said.

While staying home during the pandemic, he said his family is "doing great" and he's taken on the role of becoming his wife's official taste tester for her cooking creations.

"Trust me on this new cookbook, it's cost me about 20 pounds so far and it's still going up," he said with a laugh.
