SEC on CBS to feature new Garth Brooks song 'Pure Adrenaline' this season

A little known fact about me. Back in the early 1990s, when CDs were just being introduced, I was a young kid still in the process of discovering what music I liked. While you wouldn't know it based upon my musical choices now as an adult, one of the very first CDs I ever bought was "Ropin The Wind" by Garth Brooks.

I'm not a big country music fan, but I loved that album after hearing my older cousin play it. I still listen to "Papa Loved Mama" and "The River" from time to time off that album. And that's the thing about Garth Brooks, man.

Brooks is such a superstar in the world of country music that you don't even have to like country music to know and like Garth Brooks.

And now, that superstar will be a part of SEC on CBS broadcasts this fall.

Brooks' new song, "Pure Adrenaline," was created for SEC football. The song, with customized lyrics each week along with elements from an original video shoot featuring Brooks, will help kick-off CBS Sports' "SEC Game of the Week" on Saturdays throughout the 2016 season.

Hear it for the first time on Saturday, Sept. 3 at 3:30 p.m. ET)when the SEC on CBS kicks off for the 2016 season with Texas A&M taking on UCLA.

And here's Brooks making the announcement via Facebook Live.
