Garth Brooks channel coming to SiriusXM

Garth Brooks is coming to SiriusXM.

The country megastar will launch a signature channel on the satellite radio service and SiriusXM app on Sept. 8.

The Garth Channel will be curated and presented by Brooks, which means it will feature music from his own four-decade career (that’s kind of hard to believe, isn’t it?), as well as songs from the artists who have influenced him. Live recordings and other rarities from the Brooks archives are also on the playlist.

Brooks, who is currently on a three-year world tour with wife Trisha Yearwood, will regularly host on the channel, as will guest DJs.

In September 2014, one of the earliest stops on his tour, Brooks performed seven high-energy concerts at Philips Arena.

With his SiriusXM channel, Brooks joins the elite club of other big-name acts with spotlight channels, including Jimmy Buffett, Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam.
