Dolly Parton To Take Over Tailgate Radio on Friday
Garth Brooks' Tailgate Radio on TuneIn will have a special guest on Friday – Dolly Parton.
"Dolly is taking over Tailgate Radio," Brooks said. "That will be exciting. It will be really cool to see what she plays."
Fans can hear Parton on the station 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Friday (Nov. 17), 8 a.m. ET Saturday (Nov. 18) and 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET on Sunday (Nov. 19).
Tailgate Radio combines high-energy music from multiple genres with sports, including live play-by-plays, along with pre- and post-game entertainment. Brooks launched the station earlier this fall on his Sevens Radio Network through TuneIn, and popular sports commentator and producer Maria Taylor serves as host.
"If you need morning coffee without morning coffee, this is your station right here," Brooks said. "Full time - it just flies, and it never slows down. If you want it at 2 a.m., if you want it at 2 p.m., you're going to get a dose of just upbeat stuff. I love Tailgate that way. Smart idea; I can't believe someone hasn't thought about it before. Next time you want to have a party but don't want to put together a playlist, tune in to Tailgate Radio. Try to keep up."
Parton is having a football weekend this weekend. In addition to anchoring the Tailgate Radio takeover, she'll release her highly anticipated first rock album on Friday (Nov. 17), "Rockstar." On Saturday, the East Tennessee native will head toward home to watch the Tennessee Vols take on the Georgia Bulldogs at Knoxville's famed Neyland Stadium.
With Parton at the helm of Tailgate Radio, it will surely be a touchdown for sports and music fans alike. To listen, download the TuneIn App or visit here.
Brooks will pick up the ball and run with it next week when he headlines the first-ever Black Friday Amazon Music Live special with his Dive Bar concert celebrating the opening of the Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk in Nashville. The event will follow the first-ever NFL Black Friday football game between the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins. The game and concert will stream free on Prime Video—the game at 3 p.m. and the concert at 7 p.m. Eastern—on Friday, November 24.
