Garth Brooks, Lainey Wilson and Nitty Gritty to play inaugural Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff


Instead of placing a call to Baton Rouge, this time Garth Brooks is going straight to the Superdome. He’s the headliner for the inaugural Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff. And he isn’t alone…

“Your own Lainey Wilson’s going to be there. Probably the hottest thing in country music right now along with Nitty Gritty. We all grew up with Nitty Gritty, so this is going to be a guaranteed good time,” said Brooks.

The last time Brooks played in the Bayou State was April of last year in front of a sold crowd at Tiger Stadium and the seven-time winner of the CMA Entertainer of the Year said he’d be game to play the kickoff every year.

“Thanks for letting me be the first-ever, that’s also quite a tip of the hat, very sweet. I’d do it every year if you guys wouldn’t get tired of me. I love the thought of this,” said Brooks.

Brooks said there are things that define a career and for him, it’s playing Central Park, Yankee Stadium, Croke Park, and Olympic Stadium in Munich.

“Just these big places, and now the Superdome kind of completes that for me. I feel really, really lucky to be playing in this area,” said Brooks.

Tickets for the September 2nd concert go on sale July 21st, and you can see all three artists for less than $100.
