Garth Brooks has broken the record for entertainment ticket sales for his upcoming Nashville Nissan Stadium show in just 75 minutes, with tickets still being sold. The recently announced Nashville show is set for July 31, and marks the country superstar’s first show at Nissan Stadium in his decades-long career.
“It’s just crazy to think that people…would do that for you,” Brooks says. “I mean, I can list you eight-thousand artists that I think they would do it for, but it’s just crazy when you see your name or your face on somebody’s shirt that’s coming there that knows every word of everything you’ve ever done,” he explains. “I know that’s me for George Strait. And I know how much I worship and love George Strait. And to think that somebody could feel that way to me is just…totally crazy.”
The feat adds to the collection of honors Brooks has received this year. In May, Brooks received The Kennedy Center Honor alongside actress-dancer-choreographer Debbie Allen, folk singer and activist Joan Baez, violin virtuoso Midori, and beloved acting icon Dick Van Dyke. Brooks was also recently awarded the Country Touring Artist of the Decade at the 2021 Pollstar Awards.
