Garth Brooks Reschedules Facebook Live Concert for July 14

Garth Brooks Reschedules Facebook Live Concert for July 14

Garth Brooks announced via Twitter on July 13 that he and wife Trisha Yearwood will be performing fan-requested songs during his Facebook Live series, Inside Studio G, on July 14.

The concert, which was originally slated for July 7, was postponed last week “out of an abundance of caution” due to possible COVID-19 exposure.

The original performance date coincided with the birthday of Garth’s late friend, Emmett Gilliam, who was the stage production manager for Garth’s tours through the ’90s and later ran the Oklahoma farm Garth called home after stepping out of the spotlight in 2000.

“The whole first week of July is so important to all of us in this camp,” said Garth when the original date was announced. “They were called the ‘Days of Em.’ We lost Emmett [several] years ago. His birthday was 7/7. But always, when Emmett was alive…from July 1 to July 7 were the Days of Em, which meant you pretty much walked around in your shorts…you didn’t do any work whatsoever on the farm…drank a lot, ate too much. It was fabulous.”

Garth and his team will be sifting through requests that can be made on his socials using the hashtag, #GarthRequestLive2. Feel free to include a photo of yourself with a mustache in tribute to Emmett, who sported a recognizable stash.

“We’ve got pictures of these Days of Em parties that we’ve had for years,” said Garth. “And everybody has to wear a mustache—girls, guys, everybody does.”

Tune in to Garth’s Inside Studio G on Facebook on July 14 at 7 p.m. ET.
