Jimmy Kimmel got some help writing a new song from the man who has sold more albums than any solo artist in the world, Garth Brooks.

Brooks, fresh off his win as CMA Entertainer of the Year, explained to Kimmel "it's always great if you can find something that moves you, something you will die for, something that's changed your life".

Kimmel digs deep to remember some dance lessons he ordered for a friend's birthday and how the purchase went bad.

Garth helps him make sure it will be a hit by sharing his legendary around-the-ear headset with Kimmel to record his hit with.

Brooks also sat down with Kimmel where they talked about streaming his music. He has been back in the studio and released a new single, "Baby, Let's Lay Down and Dance". 

He also just finished a new Christmas album, "Christmas Together", with his wife Trisha Yearwood,

They also chatted about Brooks recording a special version of "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" for Kimmel's sister.  

Scripps talked with Garth Brooks a few weeks ago at The 50th Annual CMA Awards where he shared he has the "easiest gig on the planet".
