CMA “Entertainer Of The Year” Garth Brooks
is offering fans a look behind the scenes of his first music video in 12
years in a special broadcast of “The Making Of Dive Bar” set to
exclusively premiere on CMT on Saturday, January 18 at 12pm/11am CT, and will re-air on Sunday January, 19 at 12pm/11am CT.
Brooks co-directed the music video for his current Top 15 single with
Blake Shelton, “Dive Bar,” alongside Robert Deaton, teaming up to make a
one-of-a-kind concept. Brooks and Deaton share the process that went
into making the video, including Brooks’ band members taking scuba
diving lessons to bring the song to life and the meticulously shot
visuals throughout. Brooks’ collaborator on the track Blake Shelton also
features in the special, offering a humorous glimpse into the
atmosphere on set for the video that garnered over 30 million views in
“CMT Hot 20 Countdown” will also celebrate the broadcast premiere with a
special “Garth Weekend,” featuring over 3.5 hours of Garth-centric
programming for both of its weekend shows. “CMT Hot 20 Countdown: Garth
Weekend” will air at 9am ET/8am CT on Saturday, January 18 and Sunday,
Brooks’ current single also sparked his DIVE BAR tour across the
country, where the only way in was to win tickets via country radio.
Brooks just announced he will extend the intimate tour into this year,
kicking off in Boston where some inclement weather prevented the
previously scheduled show from taking place and with more dates to be
announced in the near future.
