"It's rare to be handed an opportunity that can grow as big as you can dream. That is exactly what SiriusXM has just done," said Brooks. "I speak for myself and the entire team when I say we are very grateful for this opportunity and very excited about its potential."
"In music, there are few groundbreaking artists, but there's only one Garth Brooks. We are thrilled to have him running his own full time channel at SiriusXM," said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer, SiriusXM. "And we are so excited that our subscribers will now get Garth in their cars 24/7 and have a place to get Garth on their phones and online - something that has not been available in the past. Garth's addition to SiriusXM makes our country music offering second to none."
Brooks is currently on the three-year Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood. The tour began with 11 sold out shows at the Allstate Arena in Chicago. The tour has sold almost 5 million tickets.
