Beginning September 8th, SiriusXM will be home to Garth Brooks’ The Garth Channel, another artist-exclusive channel that will feature the music of the best-selling solo artist in North American history. Brooks made the announcement this morning on The Highway.
Curated and presented by Brooks, The Garth Channel will feature music spanning the four decades of the musicians career, along with songs from the artists that influenced him. This is the first time Garth’s music is being presented 24/7 in one place, on radio or online.
SiriusXM’s The Garth Channel will also include regularly hosted shows and behind-the-scenes commentary from Brooks, guest DJ specials hosted by Brooks’ fans and friends, live concert recordings and other rarities from Brooks’ treasured archives.
“It’s rare to be handed an opportunity that can grow as big as you can dream. That is exactly what SiriusXM has just done,” said Garth Brooks. “I speak for myself and the entire team when I say we are very grateful for this opportunity and very excited about its potential.”
Garth is currently on the three year Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood. The tour began with 11 sold out shows at the Allstate Arena in Chicago and is smashing records previously held by such acts as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and even Garth Brooks.
The Garth Channel launches on September 8th across all SiriusXM satellite radios and online via SiriusXM Streaming.
As well, some of our country channels will be moving to different numbers on your radio effective August 4th, 2016:
