NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Jan. 20, 1997--Garth Brooks, who has sold out every show on his current concert tour, continued the sellout streak with four more shows, Feb. 13-16, at the Charleston Civic Center Coliseum in Charleston, W.V.



Over 8,600 fans braved temperatures that hovered at 4 F to purchase over 49,000 tickets for the four shows. This broke the venue's existing attendance record which Brooks set in 1992 (one show -- 12,876 tickets).



Brooks also broke the venue's record for fastest sellout, with the first show selling out in 31 minutes. Brooks himself established the record in 1992, when his show sold out in 49 minutes.



Brooks heads to Los Angeles for the American Music Awards on Monday, Jan. 27. He is nominated for Favorite Country Male Vocalist and Favorite Country Album ("Fresh Horses"). Last week Brooks accepted the award for Favorite Male Musical Performer at the People's Choice Awards. This marks the sixth consecutive year he has won the honor.
