Garth Brooks may be the next artist to join Nashville’s Lower Broadway district with his own bar.
During a press conference in Nashville last week, Garth told reporters it “made sense” for him to have a bar in Music City, and detailed some ideas he had surrounding the opportunity, should it ever present itself.
“It makes sense, it can't come soon enough for me,” he said. “It would be an honor if I ever got to do it. I know exactly the way I'd want it to be because I live in the dive bars.”
Garth talked himself into a daydream of joining his fellow Country stars as he shared ideas for his own dive bar, proving Friday’s press conference wasn’t the first time he’d thought about the idea.
"I'll tell you, man, with getting to be part of arguably one of the most sing-a-long songs ever, in all of the music, [‘Friends In Low Places’] that's a fun direction to go to."
“That's your constituency. That's the people that you lean on in hard times,” he said of the dive bar community. “You come there to get guidance and sometimes you get a little too much guidance. Hopefully, your friends around will make sure that you get home safe and all that stuff… But that'd be a fun thing.”
While a Garth Brooks bar would surely be well-received by his loyal fans, it’s most-likely not a project on the top of his mind as he works to determine the fate of his current stadium tour.
According to a recent press release, Brooks and his team are scheduled to assess the most-recent COVID-19 data after his show in Lincoln, NE on August 14. After their review, Brooks’ camp will decide whether or not the stadium tour will continue on as planned. As a result, tickets for Garth’s show in Seattle will not go on sale this Friday.
“I’m telling you right now, it’s getting sticky out there,” Garth said, referencing the pandemic during an episode of Studio G on Monday night. “You can’t be safe enough. You can’t be cautious enough.”
