Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton release live ‘Dive Bar’ video

Video was filmed in July 2019

Garth Brooks has released the live video for “Dive Bar” with Blake Shelton. The video premiered on Facebook Live at 7 am ET on Wednesday (July 19th).

The performance is from Albertsons Stadium in Boise, ID on July 19th, 2019. It was the first time the pair sung the “rowdy” (Rolling Stone) and “anthemic” (Billboard) track together live.

“Dive Bar” is currently climbing the country radio charts as it nears the top five. Upon its debut it was the most added song at country radio and is taken from Brooks’ forthcoming studio album, Fun, which is scheduled for sometime this summer. This is the pair’s first collaboration.

The song’s official music video, Brooks’ first in more than a decade, was released last fall and surpassed more than 30 million views within the first five days of release on Facebook. It’s the highest number of music video streams on Facebook in country music history.

The single inspired Brooks Dive Bar Tour where he plays smaller venues between stadium dates. The first Dive Bar concert was at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago in July 2019. The second was at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, CA, in August 2019. The third was at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX in September 2019. The fourth one was The Barn in Sanford, FL October 2019. The fifth stop was at The Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown, OH, also in October 2019. The sixth show was at Prospector’s in Mt. Laurel, NJ on December 2nd. The seventh show was also scheduled for December 2nd at the Six String Grill and Stage in Foxborough, MA, but was postponed until last month due to weather.

Brooks continues his massive Stadium Tour this weekend at Ford Field in Detroit with Chase Rice opening. Brooks set the record for the largest attendance at a one-night musical event with over 70,000 tickets sold in only 90 minutes for Ford Field. This will be Brooks’ first time ever playing at Ford Field and the only Michigan stop on three year long Stadium Tour.
