Little Rock, Arkansas (PRWEB) November 07, 2014
One of the pioneers of country music has been touring around the country this year for the first time in close to a decade. Garth Brooks, the 52-year-old native of Tulsa, OK has been active in the music business since the mid 1980s and has been responsible for much of the increase in popularity for the genre. Brooks has been touring around the United States on the “Garth Brooks World Tour” and is announcing new stops including two shows in Little Rock, AK at the Verizon Arena. The two shows will be held on consecutive nights beginning on December 12th. There is a chance that more dates will be added on to the original two dates dependent upon fan demand. The opening act for Brooks will be his wife, Trisha Yearwood.
Brooks is one of the most popular and admired country music artists of all time and he has released nine studio albums, one live album, and four compilation albums. He is set to release his 10th studio album, Man Against Machine. During his career, he has released 53 singles and his albums have earned Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for selling more than one million copies 134 times. He has sold nearly 70 million records in his career which according to Nielson SoundScan, which has been around since early 1991, makes him the second best selling artist of all time in the United States during that time.
When Brooks released his self-titled debut album, he instantly became a fan favorite. It was his first of six albums to earn Diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for selling more than 10 million copies. Other albums that also achieved that feat include No Fences, Ropin’ the Wind, Sevens, The Hits, and Double Live. The last album he released before his forthcoming Man Against Machine came back in 2001.
Each time Brooks takes a stage or enters a room filled with country fans, heads turn and strong feelings are felt towards him. That was evident at the 2014 Country Music Awards when Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan praised him after winning the award. To this day, Brooks’ fans love every second of his performances and when he takes the stage during his shows in Arkansas, fans will hope to hear many of his hits including “Shameless,” “She’s Every Woman,” “The Beaches of Cheyenne,” “Longneck Bottle,” and many more.
The Verizon Arena is a multi-purpose facility located in North Little Rock that originally opened in 1999. Since opening, the venue has been home to many sporting events including Indoor Football League action, as well as D-League basketball action from the National Basketball Association. It has also been the home of countless concerts featuring some of the largest names in music including Fleetwood Mac and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. The venue can hold more than 16,000 fans and when Brooks and Yearwood play there in December, it will be a packed house of country-loving individuals.
