Garth Brooks just added a Nov. 16 stop Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, home of the Tennessee Volunteers football team, to his 2019 stadium tour.

Per a press release, it will be the first concert hosted by the stadium in 16 years. Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster on Sept. 13. Tickets cost $94.95, including taxes and fees, and are limited to eight per customer.

When one of popular music's highest-grossing superstars isn't playing a dive bar near you, he fills stadiums, with recent tour dates including stops at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., The Dome at America's Center in St. Louis, U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver and Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Neyland Stadium won't be the first college football mecca visited by Brooks. CBS' recent prime time television special was shot at Notre Dame Stadium. Additional 2019 shows included visits to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at the University of Florida in Gainesville, University of Oregon's Autzen Stadium in Eugene and Albertsons Stadium at Boise State University.

At each stop, a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee blends his '90s country sound, defined by such hits as "Friends in Low Places," "If Tomorrow Never Comes" and "The Dance," with the showmanship of a Las Vegas entertainer.

The show comes at a busy time for Brooks. Recent developments include duets with Blake Shelton ("Dive Bar") and Trisha Yearwood ("What Gave Me Away"), plus his 13th career CMA Awards nomination for Entertainer of the Year.
