Garth Brooks turns Gruene Hall into rowdy honky tonk

Brooks’ third Dive Bar Tour at the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX rocked fans inside and out

It was a rowdy honky tonk at Garth Brooks’ third Dive Bar concert at the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX. The place was filled to capacity at 800 people with multiple big screens and speakers set up for the more 5,000 fans that gathered outside the famed venue.

Brooks went live on Facebook just before taking the stage for his weekly Facebook Live series, Inside Studio G. The full recap sizzle reel for tonight will be featured on the episode next Monday, September 30th at 7 pm ET.

Country radio stations all across the nation were given the chance to send contest winners.

This was the third of seven Dive Bar concerts. The first was at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago in July. The second was at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, CA in August. The remaining four are yet to be announced.

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

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.
