Spots for Garth Brooks’ drive-in events are selling out fast, but he’s urging fans to “keep trying”

ABC/Image Group LAAs he gears up for his one-night-only, nationwide drive-in concert event this Saturday, Garth Brooks is hoping that as many fans as possible find a spot at their local drive-in theaters to watch.

Though some theaters are selling out, Garth is urging would-be concert-goers to be persistent.

“Keep trying,” he exhorts. “People are finding out...their theater’s sold out, but maybe the one just a little bit further down the road has one left, two left. There’s still gonna be parking slots that are open in different theaters at different places.”

In an attempt to accommodate as many fans as possible, tickets for the drive-in event were added in select markets this week. Each ticket admits one car or truck, and costs $100.

The show, which is set to broadcast in 300 theaters across the U.S. and Canada, will give Garth the opportunity to connect with fans in a creative new way, even though the pandemic continues to make it unsafe for him to perform shows in person. Saturday’s event is set to be the largest ever to play in outdoor shows throughout the region.

The concert comes on the same day that Garth initially planned to play a sold-out show at Cincinnati’s 70,000-seat Paul Brown Stadium. He's had to postpone both that show and another summer stadium engagement in light of the continuing pandemic.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
