Garth Brooks Announces Dive Bar Tour!

Garth Brooks is already out on the road with a massive stadium tour, but now he’s coming to a more intimate venue near you!

The 57-year-old country star revealed the exciting news during a Facebook chat on Sunday (July 7).

“We’re announcing the Dive Bar Tour today,” he explained, teasing that he was unable to announce at which bar the tour, a partnership with Seagram’s 7, would kick off first.

“They’re trying to save every single dive bar on the planet, and they should, because it’s something that should not see extinction. Sometimes that’s your church. And for those people who think that’s sacrilegious, please hear me out. A church is a people who are like you, searching, and sometimes you just need a shoulder to lean on. That’s what a dive bar is. That’s what a good dive bar is,” he went on to explain.

If you didn’t know, Garth also has a song out with Blake Shelton called “Dive Bar.” The two will record a live version of the song on July 19 in Boise, Idaho!

The Dive Bar Tour kicks off in Chicago, at a to-be-announced location, on July 15. For all tour information, head to

Garth Brooks & Blake Shelton: 'Dive Bar' - Listen to a Snippet!

Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton have teamed up for a new duet called “Dive Bar!”

The country singers, ages 57 and 43, respectively, shared the song with fans on Blake‘s birthday, Tuesday (June 18).

“Dive Bar,” which will be included on Garth‘s upcoming album Fun, is currently only available on country radio.

“I thought, ‘I’m feeling something here that’s drawing me right into this television,’” Garth told Billboard about Blake‘s performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards this year. “So I just reached out for him. He was so sweet on the phone. The last thing I said was, ‘Hey, man, I don’t want to put you on the spot, but we got a song that might be a pretty cool duet.’”

“I want to go on record saying I did not think it would sound like this,” Garth added. “I didn’t know what I was expecting, but I’ve never heard him sing like that before…we recorded together and it was fun to watch him. My biggest shock in all of this is I think I know my voice and I think I know his, but there were several times I looked over at Matt, the engineer, when we were mixing it going, ‘Is that him or me?’”

“Thank you to everyone for the happy birthday wishes today!” Blake tweeted. “And thank you @garthbrooks for the gift of a dream collaboration!!!” Garth replied, “Thanks for making this feel like my birthday!!! I love you pal, g.”

“Dive Bar” will be available on Amazon Music starting on Amazon Prime Day – the official date has not yet been announced. Listen to a snippet below!

Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton will also debut the song at Garth‘s tour stop in Boise, Idaho, tomorrow.

Garth Brooks Says 'AGT' Star Michael Ketterer Will No Longer Perform at His Concert After Arrest

Michael Ketterer will no long perform at the Garth Brooks concert at Notre Dame Stadium after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge last week.

The 41-year-old reality star and father of six came in fifth place on the most recent season of America’s Got Talent.

Garth previously announced that he wrote a song for Michael and he invited the singer to perform the song in front of 86,000 people at the upcoming show. Following the arrest, Garth and Michael decided together that it’s best for him to not perform.

“Called him this weekend, we talked. We decided it was better that he not appear at Notre Dame and not perform there,” Garth said on his Inside Studio G Facebook Live show on Monday (September 24). “That family will figure it out and find it within themselves, and of course the good Lord, and figure it out. Michael Ketterer will not be at Notre Dame.”
