Garth Brooks’ Concerts Bring Estimated $10 Million to Nashville

Garth Brooks’ nine shows in Nashville this month may have brought as much as $10 million to the city’s economy, according to the Nashville Business Journal. However, that figure provided by the Nashville Convention and Visitor’s Bureau doesn’t include local hotel revenues during Brooks’ performances that took place Dec. 16-22 at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. Brooks sold 140,000 tickets at $25 each for the shows that also featured his wife Trisha Yearwood, thus raising a projected estimate of $3 million for the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Concert proceeds will benefit ongoing flood relief after the city’s devastating flood in May.
