Garth Brooks fans were surely disappointed when the country giant was forced to postpone his planned 2020 concert dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Garth gets it, so on Thursday morning (June 11) he announced on Good Morning America that he's going to make it up to them by putting on a nationwide gig that will help bring everyone together.
Brooks said his team had been approached "100 times" with the idea of doing a show in a big field in which fans would drive up in their cars to be appropriately distanced, but the logistics of it just never worked out. Then someone came to him with the suggestion that they put a show into 300-400 drive-in theaters across the nation if he would create a show just for them.
"We can have families jump in the car, come out on Saturday night and it's pretty cool," Brooks said of the June 27 show.
