After taking a temporary retirement in 2001, country music icon Garth Brooks returns 13 years later with his new album, "Man Against Machine" — and the mechanical force Brooks is fighting could be Apple.
The country singer's hiatus ended Monday as he released "Man Against Machine" on a self-funded platform called GhostTunes. The service is a direct competitor of Apple's iTunes, which dominates the realm of digital music sales.
