G Marks The Spot – For Official Garth Brooks Merchandise
Country music fans can find more than a good time at Garth Brooks' Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk on Nashville's Famed Lower Broadway – they can also pick up a wide array of authentic, sometimes very limited edition, merchandise.
Called the G Spot, Brooks' merchandise booth will offer branded souvenirs for fans of all ages.
"It makes it fun, and it makes it exciting," Brooks says. "After you've done this for as long as I have, you've got some pretty cool stuff that you can either do retro or new stuff that's coming."
The singer gathers many unique ideas from fans who tune into his weekly Inside Studio G livestream Mondays on Facebook. Fans often suggest merch ideas that Brooks says he never would have dreamed up himself. So, hopefully, since fans thought of it, they'll want it. And Brooks wants to ensure he offers it at an affordable price point. For fans who can't make it to Nashville's Lower Broadway to visit The G Spot, they can find the same merchandise on Brooks' website.
"Then hopefully everybody's happy," he says. "The first thing you look at when you go on the website is the merch store because for today, and today only, they've got 500 pieces of this, and you're not going to see it again."
For fans who can visit Brooks' Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk at 411 Broadway in Nashville, they can browse the merch, have a meal, catch some sports or one of Brooks' iconic performances on Lower Broadway's largest screens, have a signature cocktail and see some live music.
"What I love about Lower Broad, and people don't understand about Lower Broad, is during the daytime, people bring their kids down there for a nice place to have some lunch," the singer says. "At nighttime, it turns more into more of an adult theme. In Vegas, they have this saying: We deal in service. And I love that saying because as a honky-tonk, that's what you should be doing. There are kids down there during the daytime and have something for them because they're coming because of their love for country music."
