The Thunder Rolls was the fourth and final single released from Garth Brooks’ second studio album, No Fences. The Thunder Rolls topped the Hot Country charts in 1991 becoming his fifth number one country single in a row, and his sixth number one country single to date.
Brooks co-wrote The Thunder Rolls with Pat Alger, and it was first recorded by Tanya Tucker in the late ’80s with additional lyrics that describe a wife reaching for her pistol to confront her cheating husband. Tucker decided to not release the song, and the rest is history. Garth recorded it himself for his second album, and it became his sixth number one country single.
