Garth Brooks scored his first No. 1 single in more than 10 years as “Ask Me How I Know” ascended to the top of both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts. Garth’s previous No. 1 single was 2007’s “More Than a Memory.”
“Ask Me How I Know,” which was penned by Mitch Rossell, is Garth’s 20th career No. 1. This feat also marks a full-circle moment for Garth, as this week is the 28th anniversary of his first No. 1, “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” on Dec. 9, 1989.
“I’m so proud of the Pearl Records team for working so hard for this number one,” said Garth. “Congrats to Mitch Rossell on his first cut—so happy for you, pal! And to country radio, four decades later, thanks for still believing. I’m humbled and very grateful.”
Garth is kicking off the final North American run of the Garth Brooks World Tour this week, returning to Nashville on Dec. 9, where he will play seven shows at Bridgestone Arena to mark the end of the tour.
