Only way to win is through country radio
Garth Brooks has announced his fourth Dive Bar concert. It will be at The Barn in Sanford, FL on Wednesday, October 16th. The only way in is to win is through country radio.
The first three Dive Bar stops were Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago in July, Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, CA in August and Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX in September.
Brooks announced that Florida would be the location of the next Dive Bar stop Monday night (Sept 30th) on Inside Studio G, his weekly Facebook live series.
Country radio got to announce the date and name of the dive bar in Florida this afternoon. All ticket holders must be 21 and over.
This summer, Brooks joined Seagram’s 7 to declare this the summer of Dive Bars. As part of the celebration, the pair pledged to help make our roads safer for everyone by never driving impaired and have committed to securing 700,000 pledges this summer from dive bar patrons across the country at jointhepact.com.
Brooks’ new single “Dive Bar” featuring Blake Shelton, which inspired the seven date stint of dive bar shows, is available on Amazon Music. The “rowdy” (Rolling Stone) and “anthemic” (Billboard) new song was the most added song at country radio upon its debut and is taken from Brooks’ forthcoming studio album Fun, and is his first musical collaboration with Shelton. A video is expected soon.
Brooks is also in the midst of his record-breaking, “turbo-charged” (Variety) three year stadium tour. The final concert for this year will be at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, TN! It will be the tenth stop on the tour, which has been mass averaging just over 83,000 tickets in each city and over 830,000 tickets sold to date.
