At a press conference held this morning, Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood confirmed they will perform a concert to benefit flood relief efforts in Middle Tennessee at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on December 17.   The superstar indicated that if there is a demand, he will add extra performances, as well as call on his famous friends such as Steve Wariner to serve as surprise guests.

“We decided to do the show the day we saw the footage of the floods,” Garth said. “We’re lucky to have a dual residency, so you’re talking to a guy that’s from here, but saw it from outside. As doubly painful as it was to watch it from outside, now you’re doubly proud to get to help.

“This is about two citizens standing up with the rest of the citizens,” Garth adds. “We’re following in the footsteps. There were a lot of artists that came out and did their thing, and all we’re doing is trying to continue their example that they have set as artists and trying to continue the example that the citizens of this state have done.”

The tickets will be $25 plus handling, with 100 percent of the ticket sales going to those in need.  Ticket information will be released at 12:00 PM (CT) on Wednesday, November 3, for what many hope will be the first of several shows.

Garth, who performed several shows in California to benefit the victims of the wildfires a few years ago, is retired except for his five-year deal with the Wynn Encore in Las Vegas to do occasional performances.
