In A Class By Himself
May 20, 2016
There is Garth ... and there is everyone else!
Garth and Trisha celebrated the four millionth ticket buyer at a recent Michigan show. It was done as only they could.
Ashley Van Dort was escorted back stage pre-show. She learned she now owns: A new red Corvette and a black Jeep Cherokee, a $5,000 shopping spree and a trip for four to Las Vegas. That's a big prize package but then in true Garth style decided to pay off the Michigan teacher's student loans. And is very true Garth style ... no big news release, it just happened. And the word got out.
Then Garth met the media at Yankee Stadium to build up Big Apple interest in his July stadium shows. Tickets went on sale 10a on May 20th.
At the NYC news conference, Garth took several trips down memory lane as he was asked about past NYC shows. His Central Park show was one none will forget. It was scary big and when it was done, the exit looked like something out of the movies. It was really crazy.
This guy amazes every time he wants to ... a master at promotion and his sense of timing is sensational. His team is understated and the best. After all these years his magical powers continue to amaze.
How many tickets will he sell at Yankee stadium?
New York City was able to survive having Garth and Blake working the media this week. Blake did Today and Live with Kelly. Garth held a Yankee Stadium news conference.
Blake's new album is now out and he has really talked up the personal reflections on this album.
Blake and Gwen sing their new duet on The Billboard Music Awards. Sunday night, May 22nd on ABC.
Brad Paisley's new song with Demi Lovato took off like a rocket this week. "Without A Fight" will get its first live TV performance on Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night May 24th.
Brad's Summer tour got started in Sacramento and in Southern California 5/19 ... Jason Aldean's tour with Thomas Rhett got to work in Arkansas and Luke Bryan giving Atlanta's Lakewood two back-to-back nights.
The weather is always a factor for music and Summer ... Let's hope the temperatures from India this week don't come here ... 123.8F!
The CMT Music award tickets are available on Ticketmaster now. June 8th in Nashville. Usually a fun show.
Hard working newcomer Chris Janson has a 100city Summer tour scheduled ... All over America. Buy Me A Boat Tour. Lots of energy ... and he can wail on that harmonica!
Tim McGraw just announced as the featured act 4th Of July on the beach Wildwood, NJ. Kenny played there in in 2012.
So welcome to Summer ... Country music is stronger than ever.
