Free Garth Brooks Concert in Nashville / TN

Governor Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of
Tourist Development Announce

Celebration Show with Garth Brooks to Honor First-Ever
Seven Diamond RIAA Certifications
Tennessee Tourism Offering Free Ticket Codes on
Snapchat

In a
special ceremony at the State Capitol, Gov. Haslam named Brooks a Tennessee
Ambassador of Goodwill in honor of the achievement, which brings the title of most
Diamond-certified artist home to country music and the state of Tennessee.
Brooks had previously been tied with The Beatles, who have six
Diamond-certified recordings.

Haslam also announced the launch of a
partnership between the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development and Garth
Brooks, which includes a special “thank you” performance for fans in the
singer’s adopted home state of Tennessee. Brooks will take the stage at Ascend
Amphitheatre in Nashville on Monday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. and the event is free. Additionally,
there will be a viewing area at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville, where
fans can watch the celebration live on giant video screens, enjoy refreshments
from local vendors and receive special giveaways.
“Garth Brooks can
live and make music anywhere he wants, and the fact that he has chosen to do
that in Tennessee says a lot about our state,” said Gov. Haslam. “We’re
grateful he is partnering with us because he represents our state so well and
inspires people to visit Tennessee and experience, as we say, the soundtrack of
America.”
Free tickets for the celebration show will
be available using codes issued on TDTD’s new Snapchat account @Tennessee,
which officially launches today. By following the account, fans can access these
codes as well as
exclusive Garth Brooks stories and surprise
celebrity takeovers.
“I feel very
lucky and blessed to get to team with the state of Tennessee to bring the seven
Diamond Certifications to the home of country music. The journey has
truly been a genuine partnership,” said Brooks.
The RIAA Diamond Certifications highlight
the seven Garth Brooks albums, which were all recorded in Tennessee, that have
individually sold more than 10 million copies. The albums that have reached
this achievement are Garth Brooks, No Fences, Ropin’ The Wind, The Hits,
Double-Live, Sevens, and The Ultimate
Hits.
The seven Diamonds celebration further supports the state’s dedication
to music and tourism initiatives as part of “The Soundtrack of America. Made in
Tennessee” program.
Tennessee has long been known as a global
music destination, where the genres of blues, bluegrass, country, gospel, soul,
rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll originated and has more musicians per capita than
any other place in the world. It is the state where artists come to create and
perform their music. Tennessee is home to world-renowned music attractions like
Graceland, Beale Street, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, The Bluebird
Café, Birthplace of Country Music Museum, Grand Ole Opry and the famous Ryman
Auditorium.
