Garth Brooks Heads to Salt Lake City For a Little Diving

Garth Brooks Heads to Salt Lake City For a Little Diving

Garth Brooks rocked Salt Lake City Saturday Night at the University of Utah’s Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Thrilled to be back performing for his fans Garth shares, “It was fun! They’re so sweet! Even though there’s 50-thousand of them, they act as one. It’s the greatest partner you’ve ever had. It’s a fun dance.” 

After the last year and half Garth – who is no stranger to big stages – realized that being back to concerts means something a little different now, “I’m thinking we’re okay…and then you realize what you’ve missed, because you get to hear them sing (getting emotional). That’s the hard part. So, for me – I didn’t know how much I missed it…until you get to hear those voices…get to see that face. And I don’t think it was for Garth Brooks. I think it was the joy of being together. That’s what we’re supposed to do is be together.”

Garth shares his secret to performing for his fans, “The quicker you can turn it into a party [rather] than a concert…the less the old man has to work. There’s nothing to do! You just watch!”

Of course, the party got started the day before Garth took the “big” stage – when he stepped back on the “little” stage to resume his Dive Bar shows. Friday night Garth headed to The Westerner – a Salt Lake City honky-tonk – and if you couldn’t make the show…Garth shared a little big of the fun for fans to see…

Garth’s next stop is coming up this weekend at the sold out Cheyenne Frontier Days show in Cheyenne, WY.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
