Morgan Wallen Makes History As He Ties A Record Held By Garth Brooks

Morgan Wallen made history at a Lexington, Kentucky arena as he tied a record held by a fellow country superstar.

According to Lexington-based radio station 98.1 The Bull, Wallen tied a record held by Garth Brooks after announcing three back-to-back nights at Rupp Arena in Kentucky. The East Tennessee native became the second artist in the history of the arena to perform three back-to-back nights and will perform on December 3, 4 and 5. In May 1998, Brooks became the first artist to ever headline three consecutive nights at the arena in May 1998.

“This is only the second time in Rupp Arena’s 45-year history [that] an artist has headlined three back-to-back nights, Garth Brooks is the only other performer to do it in May 1998,” the iHeartRadio station shared on Facebook.

Wallen is set to headline Rupp Arena for three consecutive nights in early December. 

The “Sand In My Boots” singer recently announced tour dates throughout fall and winter into next summer. 

He is also set to headline several festivals, including Country Thunder in Arizona, Wisconsin, Florida and more, throughout the United States in 2022.
