A new streaming music deal marks the end of an era, as the last music superstar who was holding out on streaming has finally joined the digital revolution. Billboard reports that Garth Brooks has signed a streaming deal with Amazon.

“Effective immediately a number of titles from Brooks, the No. 1 selling solo artist in the U.S., are available for streaming exclusively through Amazon Music Unlimited, with more albums to be added,” Billboard reports.

Music Unlimited, which launched last week, is Amazon’s expanded on-demand music streaming service. The service, which has multiple price points, features tens of millions of songs, with curated playlists and personalized stations.

“Available on Amazon Music Unlimited now are Brooks’ ‘Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,’ the first single from his forthcoming studio album, ‘Gunslinger,’ which debuted on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart at No. 19 this week, as well as his 34-track ‘Ultimate Hits’ set, originally released in 2007, and 1998’s ‘Double Live’ collection,” Billboard reports, noting that “Double Live” is also available on Amazon Prime.
