Garth Brooks Gets Ready to Rock Nashville
Nashville is bracing for the return of Garth Brooks next week! The superstar entertainer, along with his wife, Trisha Yearwood, and songwriter Karyn Rochelle, are gearing up to play nine sold-out shows at Music City's Bridgestone Arena to benefit the ongoing flood-relief effort in Middle Tennessee.
Massive crowds are expected to arrive in Nashville beginning Thursday, December 16 -- the night of the first two Garth shows -- which take place at 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM. Nashville Downtown Partnership is lending a helping hand with traffic control and parking options for fans attending the shows.
"This is a unique opportunity," says Nashville Downtown Partnership Pres. & CEO Tom Turner. "We have 150,000 ticket buyers and it's not often we have that many exposures in such a very short time. The community rallied in support during the May floods and that effort is being matched once again in order to help this go smoothly. Where else can you find an artist doing nine shows in one location for 150,000 fans and all to assist in the recovery efforts ... not to mention they will have a great time."
Fans will have the opportunity to park for free at LP Field for the shows taking place December 16 (7:00 PM and 10:00 PM), December 17 (7:00 PM), December 19 (7:30 PM), December 20 (7:30 PM), December 21 (6:00 PM and 9:00 PM) and December 22 (6:00 PM and 9:00 PM). A shuttle service will be available for $3 (round-trip) for those who wish to be brought from the stadium to the arena where the concerts will be held. There will also be advance parking at the Pinnacle Garage for $10 (plus TicketMaster fees), which can be purchased by clicking here.

Those unable to see Garth in person next week can tune into 'Larry King Live' this Friday night (December 10) on CNN. The featured guest for the hour-long show, among topics Garth is expected to discuss are the Nashville concerts and his Las Vegas shows.
