Garth Brooks is throwing a free show in Nashville this month to celebrate a massive career achievement.

Last month, Brooks became the first solo artist in history to have seven of his albums sell over 10 million copies. Earlier this morning (Oct. 3), the country superstar announced he’ll return to the Music City for a free show in celebration of the career milestone.

The show will be held at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater on Oct. 24. Fans interested in snagging tickets must follow Tennessee Tourism’s Snapchat account (@Tennessee) to find out how to get yours.

The concert comes just a few weeks after his historic performance at the Ryman Auditorium, which helped launch his SiriusXM station, The Garth Channel. During a press conference with Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, he explained his longtime connection with the city and music hub.

“For people like me and Ms. Yearwood, the dream has always been in Nashville,” he said as tears filled his eyes. He went on to share his love of the town, and how he believes the burgeoning city will continue to thrive for years to come.

“[People] are moving here because this city is a fabulous place to live. For the next 20 years, this is going to be the city to be in,” he explained. “I hope this is as wonderful of a home for you as its been for me.”
