It's been seven years since Garth Brooks has released a new song to country radio, and yesterday he officially came out of musical retirement with his single, "People Loving People."

It's a feel-good style tune about fighting against war and substance abuse with a catchy guitar riff and lyrics that include:

"All the colors and the cultures circle 'round us on a spindle/It's a complicated riddle/The solution is so simple."

So what's the answer, Garth?

"It's people loving people/That's the enemy of everything that's evil."

Garth's new tour begins in Chicago this Thursday.

He'll also hit Florida for the first time in 17 years for three dates at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on October 10-12.

His  lovely wife, Trisha Yearwood, will join him on all tour dates, and is preparing a new song that will hit radio on Sept, 15. It's called "Prizefighter" and will feature vocals by Kelly Clarkson.

What do you think of Garth's new song?
