NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Garth Brooks, one of the last musicians to refuse putting his music on iTunes, will make his songs available digitally on his own website.
The 52-year-old country singer made the announcement Thursday at a press conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
Brooks is one of music’s top-selling artists. He said in the past that he had no animosity toward Apple, but disagreed with its approach to selling music.
Others were like Brooks and refused to join iTunes until reaching deals, including AC/DC, the Beatles, Radiohead and Led Zeppelin.
ITunes was launched in 2001.
