OFFSTAGE: Garth Brooks to Hang Out at Super Bowl of Super Camps

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

If you like country music as much as you like championship football, know this: On Feb. 5, the day before the Super Bowl, Garth Brooks will be spending some time at the Old Spice Super Camp near Dallas. He’ll be there with Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten at Dragon Stadium, and together they’ll play host to about 200 campers from the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dallas. The boys will do instructional football, and the girls will learn some cheering and gymnastics, and the folks in charge will basically be helping the kids who need it the most. Since these superstars are there to build a better future for the underserved youth of Dallas community, the camps are not open to the public. But you and your family can be there to watch, play interactive games, win prizes and — maybe, just maybe — get a chance to shake Brooks’ hand. He won’t be there to sing, but he will be taking part in the activities. Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit the nonprofit Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, Jason Witten’s SCORE Foundation and more.
