What does Garth have to say about the drive-in theater concert experience?
Unsurprisingly, if there was anyone to come up with a way to entertain over 350,000 people in one night, Garth fans new that he would be the man to figure it out. Remarkably, on Saturday, June 27, 2020, the “Friends in Low Places” singer simulcast a live stream concert to 30 drive-in theaters across America. Consequently, the set up of drive-in theaters allows for fans to maintain the recommended social distancing protocols.
On Good Morning America, Garth shares, “We are excited because this is a reason to get out of the house, but at the same time you get to follow all the COVID-19 rules from every individual state and you get to have fun and stay within the guidelines of social distancing … we’re calling it ‘social distancing partying.'”
Afterward, Garth takes to Twitter to share some of his favorite moments from the experience with his fans. Relatably he tweets, “I have laughed my ass off for the last two or three hours just seeing everybody’s posts. I look so happy!” He elaborates on how he needed happy right then and how he was “got to see it in everybody’s faces.”
Even to Garth’s surprise, some of his favorite things about playing traditional concerts were present in this unconventional format. “At a regular concert, like in the stadiums, you come back out and everybody brings their signs. And I was surprised — why am I surprised? — to see that people had their signs in their car at the drive-in,” explains Garth.
What we know about the next Garth Brooks live-stream event
Fans of the “She’s Every Woman Singer” may be pleased to know that on July 7th they can tune into an Inside Studio G event for another live-streamed concert event. Additionally, Garth’s wife and fellow Country music legend, Trisha Yearwood, is a feature of this event. The live-stream begins at 7 PM ET on Instagram.
Unfortunately, the first attempt at this set up crashed. However, fans are reassured that the technical difficulties are addressed going forward. Garth posts on social media that the event is a requests only event. Fans that attend his concert know that he wraps his concerts up with “house cleaning.” He goes back out on stage, just him and a guitar, and plays fans’ requests. He describes Inside Studio G as “house cleaning ALL NIGHT LONG.”
What is Allie Colleen Brooks up to?
Surprisingly, Garth isn’t the only member of his family that’s been busy despite the coronavirus pandemic. Allie Colleen Brooks, 23, released her single “Ain’t the Only Hell (My Momma Raised).” Taste of Country reports that the song sends a message of family solidarity. Colleen sings the lyrics, “You can’t expect me to learn from something I ain’t even tried / I ain’t afraid to crash and burn, just wanna live while I’m alive / I’ve got her blood in my veins / I ain’t the only hell my momma raised.”
Allie Colleen is one of Garth’s three daughters from his first marriage to Sandy Mahl. Not surprisingly, this single isn’t her first rodeo. While Allie Colleen has yet to release a full album, fans may recognize her debut song, “Work in Progress”. She’s also released “Along the Way” and a heartwarming rendition of her fathers, “She’s Every Woman.”
