Garth Brooks Documentary Series Heading To Prime Video

March 1, 2024 - News

Next Thursday (7 March), Garth Brooks fans can see him on Prime Video, with a new documentary series, Friends In Low Places, set to land.

Starring Brooks, his wife and fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood, and friends, the group get to work on “their most personal journey yet”, per a statement, as they team up to build a honky tonk and bar in Nashville.

The documentary will follow the project as Brooks, Yearwood and co. recruit a day-one tour team and an all-star hospitality group to create the four-storey bar set to open on Lower Broadway.

In a statement, Brooks said about the upcoming documentary series (per Digital Music News), “This was so much more than I bargained for! With that said, what we have built is far more than just a business. This is, by far, the craziest ride I have ever been on.”

Yearwood added, “We started down this road fuelled by passion, dedication, and a shared vision.

“I’m really proud of the team that has built the Friends Bar and Honky-Tonk. We are excited to share the culmination of everyone’s efforts. It’s even bigger than we dreamed!”

You can watch the documentary trailer below.

Friends In Low Places will be released as a joint effort between producers Amazon MGM Studios and Casey Patterson Entertainment, while Brooks, Casey Patterson, and Carol Donovan are executive producers of the new series. With the series coming to Prime Video, Brooks has developed his relationship with Amazon – the only streaming service to hold his music.

Brooks refuses to have his music on Spotify and Apple Music. Talking about why, the Callin’ Baton Rouge singer explained in an interview last year, “I stick up for the songwriters because I’m freakin’ one of them. Everything I do for the songwriters, I do for myself.”

Brooks is the latest country music star to move into opening a honky tonk and bar, following Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen.

Last month, Combs revealed the name of his bar: Category 10.

The Tennessean previously reported that Luke Combs’ new bar would be a four-storey venue that would hold a first-floor 250-capacity space for honky tonk shows, a second-floor ticketed concert hall for 1,500 punters, and a third floor acting as a haven for legalised betting on sports.

Combs said in an Instagram video, “I’m excited to officially announce the name of that bar. It’s going to be called Category 10. I’m so excited about that.

“Obviously, as you guys know, the strongest a hurricane can be is a Category 5, so we figured we’d double it and make it Category 10! It’s going to be an awesome honky tonk [in] Downtown Nashville. Food, spirits, you name it. Whatever you want, we’re going to have it. It’s going to be so much fun!”
