Garth Brooks Celebrates Opening of Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk With Dive Bar Concert Live on Amazon Prime Video

Hours before the Dive Bar concert celebrating the opening of his Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk, Garth Brooks posted a message to the fans lining up to get in. “I hear you’ve been there since last night. Truth is, you’ve been there my whole career. Thank you!!!”

In fact, fans had been lined up since midnight for the intimate concert, after winning tickets by listening to the BIG 615 on TuneIn.

But the person more excited than anyone was Garth himself.  “I CAN’T WAIT!!!!! See you TONIGHT @FriendsBarNash,” he posted.

“Welcome to the house that you built, right here!” he shouted at the start of the concert. “I heard you singing all night long—let’s not stop now!”

It was a night of firsts for Garth and over 600 of the first guests at his Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk. While the show was full of his best-loved hits, they were performed for the first time in the honky-tonk. The concert was the first-ever Black Friday Amazon Music Live special, following the first-ever NFL Black Friday game between the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins.

Ronnie Dunn joined Garth for the first live performance of their current duet, “Rodeo Man,” from Brooks new album, Time Traveler.

And Garth called on Trisha Yearwood, “the greatest female voice on the planet,” to sing “She’s in Love with the Boy,” the first non-Garth song played live at Friends in Low Places.

“We’ve played over 15,000 shows thanks to God and you guys, but this is the first-ever home game for us,” Brooks said, before closing with “The Dance.”   “Not only have you spoiled me to death today, but for our entire career.”

“Thanks for taking care of us and taking care of the music!”
