Garth Brooks, one of the last musicians to refuse put his music on iTunes, will make his songs available digitally on his own website in the next few weeks.
The 52-year-old country singer made the announcement Thursday at a news 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.
