Brooks’ collaborator on the track Blake Shelton also features in the special, offering a humorous glimpse into the atmosphere on set for the video that garnered over 30 million views in five days.
“CMT Hot 20 Countdown” will also celebrate the broadcast premiere with a special "Garth Weekend," featuring over 3 hours of Garth-centric programming for both of its weekend shows. "CMT Hot 20 Countdown: Garth Weekend” will air at 9am ET/8am CT on Saturday, January 18 and Sunday, January 19.
Brooks’ current single also sparked his DIVE BAR tour across the country, where the only way in was to win tickets via country radio. Brooks just announced he will extend the intimate tour into this year, kicking off in Boston where some inclement weather prevented the previously scheduled show from taking place and with more dates to be announced in the near future.
