Garth Brooks’ “Drive-In” Concert Draws More Than 350,000 Fans at Hundreds of Venues

Garth Brooks is a seven-time CMA Entertainer of the Year for a very good reason—he loves to entertain.

Garth headlined a unique concert event on June 27 as he performed across hundreds of drive-in theaters. The concert was created exclusively for this event, making it the largest one-night show to play at outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada.

Garth’s pre-recorded concert drew more than 350,000 fans.

“Watching people all night from coast to coast, in Canada and here in the U.S., laughing, dancing and singing, made me smile,” said Garth. “It reminded me how much I miss the crazy, happy and unpredictable life we lead as entertainers. For one night, things seemed . . . right.”

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.”
