As the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, it’s not too much of a shock that Garth Brooks was named the first inductee to the Live Music Hall of Fame.

Selling out countless shows all across the country and taking his tour internationally to fans, Brooks defines what it means to be a touring legend. Dedicating himself to the stage throughout every performance he puts on, the singer earned his rightful place in the inaugural induction of the new Hall of Fame and he expressed his gratitude for the award in a dear manner.

“It’s a total shock and quite an honor,” Brooks said. “I don’t think an entertainer is anything without the people who allow him to do this.”

Not like Brooks needs to stake his claim in any other way, but he validated his place in the Live Music Hall of Fame with his unprecedented approach to touring. Just last year, the country legend swept a seven-show sold-out run at Nashville’s very own Bridgestone Arena. He also captivated thousands upon thousands of fans during his time out on the road last year alongside his wife and fellow country artist Trisha Yearwood.

So far, Brooks only has two tour dates set on his schedule including his performance at the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show in March and Stagecoach Festival in April. Ticket information for those shows are available on his website.
