Garth Brooks’ Dive Bar Tour Is Headed to Texas
Garth Brooks is bringing his Dive Bar Tour to Texas! The country superstar revealed on Monday night (Aug. 19) that his third stop on the Summer 2019 trek will be in the Lone Star State.
Some of Brooks' Texas Dive Bar Tour show details were revealed on Tuesday (Aug. 20) via Texas and Oklahoma country radio stations, like that he'll play at the historic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels on Sept. 23. Ticket details are forthcoming, but they can only be won through local radio stations. As the shows are sponsored by Seagram's 7 Crown and taking place in bars, all ticketholders must be 21 years of age or older.
Brooks began his Dive Bar Tour on July 15 in Chicago, Ill., then stopped in Bakersfield, Calif., one month later. In addition to those two concerts and this upcoming Texas show, he is planning four other stops, with details about those shows to be announced. The trek is in support of Brooks' newest single, "Dive Bar," which is a duet with Blake Shelton.
Brooks co-wrote "Dive Bar" with Mitch Rossell and Bryan Kennedy, and asked Shelton to be part of the track after seeing him perform on the 2019 ACM Awards in April. Brooks and Shelton previously worked together on The Voice back in 2016, when Brooks was an advisor during the TV singing competition's 11th season, and both men are Oklahoma natives (Brooks is from Tulsa, while Shelton grew up about three hours south, in Tishomingo).
In addition to playing shows on his Dive Bar Tour and his Stadium Tour, Brooks has been working on new music as of late. He's been teasing a new album called Fun since early 2019.
