Brooks' Dive Bar tour heads west
Tuesday, July 30, 2019
– Garth Brooks announced that he is heading west to Buck Owens country for his second Dive Bar gig.
Brooks will play the Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, Cal. on Aug. 15. The venue was owned by the late Owens.
The Crystal Palace brings good memories for Brooks because it was at the venue that he became engaged to now-wife Trisha Yearwood in 2005.
Brooks played his first show at Joe's on Weed Street in Chicago on July 15.
"Dive Bar" is a song, which Brooks sang with Blake Shelton. The song is on Brooks' upcoming album, "FUN," due out later this year.
