    Garth Brooks 2019 Year In Review, 2020 Preview

    (This review is different than what it was going to be, before the Bio on
    A&E, I have only seen one part, but have read the reviews of part two)

    Anyway....


    If 2018 was the year of announcements for Garth
    Brooks, then 2019 was the year of the Vinyl.

    At the start of the year, fans were looking forward
    to many projects from Garth, the new studio album
    (Which we were also looking forward to, and paid for
    in 2018) the stand alone triple live album, the Diamond
    series, the companion DVD Doco for the Anthology,
    maybe another chapter in the Anthology series, they
    ended up all being shelved for Vinyl Legacy Boxset.


    It has to be said, that was a massive slap in the face
    for the long term fan, if it was anyone but Garth, ya
    could see fans walking away, but it's Garth.


    Garth did a limited amount of concerts, doing 11
    full shows at Stadiums, and a further 7 shows at
    Bars where tickets were given away by local
    radio stations. All 18 shows were once again,
    in North America.


    Garth continued his Inside Studio G, which the
    format has kinda had it's day, there's only so many
    times someone can ask him, what's his favorite song
    to sing in concert, still it's great to see him nearly once a
    week in a chat format.

    It was a year, where Garth said his concerts were going
    to be Retro, in reality the onlyretro thing was bringing
    back old band members.


    From the clips, Ive seen the shows were amazing, people
    are going to see a legend, and they see him to do his thing,
    he might not be as energetic and physical on stage that he
    could be, but no one who goes to a Garth show, would ever
    go home and say, they're let down, quite the opposite, it
    ends up being the show of your life time.


    Garth did his usual appearances at several events, and
    was always professional in his behavior with fans and
    the media.


    It was a year, where he had the greatest night of his
    life (concert wise) at his Denver concert.

    The year was also dominated by his promotion for a Vinyl
    set that was previously released albums.

    If you got to see Garth in concert this year, then it
    must of a brilliant year, heck it was brilliant seeing
    all the clips on social media, and if you love Vinyl,
    then it was an amazing year.

    So where to for Garth in 2020, well its prediction time...


    Same number of Stadium shows/ Bar shows all of course will
    sell out and be fantastic.


    Fun will be released.
    Inside Studio G will continue.
    No Vinyl in 2020.
    No Anthology.

    I think the only new release will be the album Fun.

    What I have seen of the Bio, has change my mindset, like everybody
    else here it showed us, why we are fans of Garth, and bought back
    what an incredible run it's been, what he did for country music and
    music in general was historical, mind blowing really and I think he
    is now at the stage that he doesn't want to ruin his Legacy.

    I think that is fair enough, there's no point in him bringing back Chris
    Gaines, and risk it failing.

    There is no point in him touring outside North America and going to countries
    where he doesn't have a huge fanbase like the USA He proved in 1994,
    that people do know him and love his music, and even though people will turn
    up, he wouldn't get USA numbers, and some will criticize that. So its best to be
    left with the memories of 1994.

    Garth has earned the right to protect his Legacy, and has done so much for his genre.

    I use to kinda think, I love Garth, but some of the interviews he does, is just his version of
    PR, the bio changed my mind, as someone who has a neurological disorder with a wrath
    of social anxiety issues, I can see Garth is a sweet guy who still has insecurities , and what
    he is doing now, is making him happy...

    The way he performs in concert, the projects he releases, everything he does.

    So in 2020 Garth will be Garth, the fans will flock to his concerts in the USA/Canada in record
    numbers, his new album will be snapped up by the die hard fans, and he will stay with the online
    companies he feels comfortable with.

    So 2020 will be a lot like 2019!

    2020

    - Hopefully ISG continues. Agree most of it is thank you and flub questions but it is good to see him

    - More stadium tour dates

    - Fun will finally be released. Now letís just hope it is 12-14 tracks, gets its own release not packaged with anything and that the singles get promoted.

    - I think we see an Anthology get released around thanksgiving

    - I donít think we see a vinyl release in 2020

    What I hope we see

    - The diamond thing although not sure what that is

    - DVD of the biography

    - DVD of the legacy although the biography could serve that purpose

    Yeah I think the biography will serve the purpose.

    After watching the second part of the biography, I think its going to be a solid year in 2020 for Garth.

    We will get the stadium shows/dive bar shows in North America, Fun, plus later in the year a DVD of the Bio.

    This year will be hard to top for Garth in my opinion. The Stadium Tour, the Dive Bar tour, Legacy etc. Next year, depending on what he does as far as catalog and new album will be interesting. He can have a great year if he releases numbers on RIAA and Soundscan. With the Dive Bar and Stadium tour he can add to his ACM and CMA EOY awards. FUN should be a breath of fresh air and hopefully a DVD of the A&E doco will keep him at the top of country. Releasing his catalog on vinyl would be cool as the 2 chapter of anthology. I have been listening to country radio recently to see if it has picked up with the demise of Bro Country. It is ok but still boring. So why worry about singles, go for the money and sell new and catalog albums. Their is still a demand for the catalog stuff from NEW fans. So I want FUN and new music but I still like different catalog packages. I guess it is my age. I remember the 60's and 70's with all the country repackagings and I get nostalgic. So Garth could have an amazing year but make it affordable. I have heard a lot of complaints about cost. I am on a fixed income so I understand. I save my pennies for my Garth collecting but it sure gets expensive. But I can afford to lose a few more pounds. Dialysis took 50 but still got a little belly. :-)
