On May 18, Garth performed in front of more than 75,000 fans at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, making it the biggest ticketed show in the history of the Steel City, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The previous record was set during the Pitt vs. Penn State football game in 2016 with 69,983 tickets sold.

The Pittsburgh show follows Garth’s previously sold-out concerts in St. Louis, Glendale, Gainseville and Minneapolis (x2). Upcoming sold-out shows include Denver (June 8), Eugene (June 29) and Boise (July 20).

Garth’s two-plus-hour set in Pittsburgh featured more than 20 of his hits, as well as a few covers, including Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” and George Strait’s “Amarillo, By Morning.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
