Garth Brooks to play Nashville benefit

’90s country megastar Garth Brooks will play a concert to benefit victims of this summer’s Nashville floods, the LA Times reports. Announced by Brooks this morning at the state Capitol building with Tennessee’s Governor and Senators in tow, the show will be held on Dec. 17 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

Garth-Brooks Brooks last donated his services to relief for Southern California wildfire victims in 2008, with a massively successful run of five concerts at the Staples Center that raised $6 million dollars. Those shows were among his first full-scale performances since his retirement in 2000, and he has since been performing regular weekend engagements at Steve Wynn’s Encore Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas. However, the star hasn’t performed in Nashville in well over a decade.

Speaking to the Times, Brooks said he has no plans to extend the engagement to multiple dates, as he did in Los Angeles, though he mentioned: “We’ll start with one performance and see what happens.”
