WATCH: Garth Brooks Talks Comeback on ET

As Brooks' 1990 hit "Friends in Low Places" hits its 25th anniversary this year, the country icon has recorded a star-studded remake of the song. The 53-year-old singer's rep confirms to ET that George Strait, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean have re-recorded the track with Brooks, and that "everyone was truly kind and great to work with -- a real joy."

No word yet on when the track will be released, but Billboard reports that the updated version will feature an additional third verse -- not included on the original recording, but on the singer's 1998 Double Live album.

After stepping away from the spotlight for more than a decade to focus on family, Brooks made his triumphant return to country music with Man Against Machine in 2014.

"I feel like the first time we released the first album," he told ET on the day his album hit shelves. "It's like starting over again, so naturally [I feel] scared, wanting people to like it but at the same time, an album hopefully reveals who you are inside so it's a very vulnerable time."
