There’s nothing like a little advance publicity, as if Garth Brooks needs it.
But just in case, the country legend posted a photo from Nissan Stadium in Nashville to hype the news that he added a concert stop there for July 31. Tickets go on sale Friday.
“At10 a.m. sharp,” Brooks said in a Facebook live. “Don’t forget the sharp part.
He also added, “I’ve never gotten this many requests for tickets, ever.”

If you want to attend, you’d best click quickly. Judging by the sales at every other announced stop, the Garth Brook concerts are the hottest ticket in the country. He’s headed to Nashville in late July. Since he also lives in Nashville, he was celebrating the ease of it all. “You’re going to rollout of your freakin’ bed,” he said. “It’s like pulling up to your own kitchen table.”
Brooks did his weekly Studio G Facebook show from the stadium, Monday. When the show first started, he was in the Tennessee Titans locker room, sitting in front of Ryan Tannhill’s locker.
As Brooks said: “Welcome to the locker room and it smells fantastic.”
He said the Titans placed him in front of Tannehill’s locker because they knew Brooks played quarterback in high school. “They noticed the skills,” he joked.
Then he parked himself in front of Derrick Henry’s spot.
Finally, Brooks trotted out of the tunnel and onto the field. He showed fans the scoreboard, which was touting the July 31 date.
“This place is built for concerts,” Garth Brooks exclaimed. “It’s beautiful.”
Brooks has never played a concert there. He did make an appearance in 2017 as part of CMA Fest. His was a surprise appearance, not a full-blown wow kind of concert.
His stadium concert tour is a continuance of what he started in 2019. It was all interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The last time he gave a concert in Tennessee was two years ago at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. More than 84,000 people attended that day.
Tennessee Governor Predicts Record Crowd
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee issued a statement last week after Garth Brooks announced the Nashville stop. He said he’s expecting a record crowd. Eric Church currently owns it. Back in 2019, more than 56,000 came to see Churcj in Nashville.
“Let’s show the world that Nashville is open and country music is strong than ever before,” Lee said.
Brooks is touring in support of his 2020 album called Fun. It was his first studio release in four years. And his fans are responding.
His July 17 concert in Salt Lake City’s Rice-Eccles Stadium broke a TicketMaster record for fastest-ever sellout. His event in Lincoln, Nebraska sold 86,000 tickets in 75 minutes.
And the Kansas City stop sold all 74,500 tickets in one day.
Trisha Yearwood, who is married to Garth Brooks, teased her husband, Monday, when he toured Nissan Stadium.
“The last concert I saw at Titans Stadium was Beyonce,” Yearwood wrote on Facebook. “I’m gonna be expecting some dance moves.”
