Garth Brooks Is Only Going Bigger

Troyal Garth Brooks is among the best-selling artists of all time. Event insider AXS reported his sales at 170 million copies worldwide back in 2015. By 2020, the RIAA ranked Brooks as second only to the Beatles in terms of album sales. In these records, Brooks has already surpassed Elvis Presley.

Garth Brooks first broke through mainstream audiences with his eponymous debut in 1989. His album peaked at the No. 2 of the Top Country Albums and No. 13 at the Billboard 200 charts. It also spawned the hit song "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)." While he is a rock-country star influenced by James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, and George Strait, he has carved his name by taking country music with pop and rock elements.

So far, Brooks is the only artist to have eight diamond-certified albums in the United States. Following him in this record is The Beatles with six albums. It includes the debut "Garth Brooks" (10X Platinum). His diamond works also cover his debut live album "Double Live" (21X Platinum), and his third compilation "The Ultimate Hits" (10X Platinum).

The Unexpected Future of the Concert Scene

Concert events have been hit hard with the global coronavirus pandemic. World economies shut down, and people had to maintain safe distances. However, there has been an innovative solution to dampening the blow of event cancelations. And it came from an old-timey alternative.

CNN Business reports the revival of the drive-in theater. Amidst social distancing protocols, these oversized parking lots-slash-theaters have created an avenue for live performances to thrive. Local business owners who had to close operations started reopening old drive-in places or setting up makeshift theaters to utilize parking lots and show old movies.

What began as a temporary measure to generate income became a viable option for the entertainment industry's future. Just last May, Garth Brooks' fellow country star Keith Urban did a surprise show. The "Urban Underground" was seen by a little more than a hundred cars at a Nashville drive-in.
