SIRIUSXM has partnered with PEARL RECORDS artist GARTH BROOKS to launch BROOKS' own SIRIUSXM channel beginning THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th. "THE GARTH CHANNEL" will be a 24/7 exclusive channel curated and presented by BROOKS -- the best-selling solo artist of all time -- featuring music from BROOKS spanning four decades along with songs from the artists that have influenced his career. "THE GARTH CHANNEL" will also include regularly hosted shows and behind-the-scenes commentary from BROOKS, guest DJ specials hosted by BROOKS' fans and friends, live concert recordings, and other rarities from BROOKS' career archives.
"It's rare to be handed an opportunity that can grow as big as you can dream," said BROOKS. "That is exactly what SIRIUSXM has just done. I speak for myself and the entire team when I say we are very grateful for this opportunity and very excited about its potential." SIRIUSXM President/CCO SCOTT GREENSTEIN remarked, "In music, there are few groundbreaking artists, but there's only one GARTH BROOKS. We are thrilled to have him running his own full time channel at SIRIUSXM. And we are so excited that our subscribers will now get GARTH in their cars 24/7 and have a place to get GARTH on their phones and online -- something that has not been available in the past. GARTH's addition to SIRIUSXM makes our Country music offering second to none."
