As if we needed another reason to consider Garth Brooks one of the biggest artists in the history of music... 

Recently, Brooks added yet another honor to his long list of achievements when he was awarded the prestigious SoundExchange Digital Radio Award. The award is presented to artists who reach over one billion performances on more than 2,500 digital radio services. 

Brooks is currently the reigning number one selling artist in U.S. history, so there was no surprise he was up for this award!

The award was presented by SoundExchange President and CEO Michael Huppe, before one of Brooks' sold-out shows at Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena. According to, Huppe said of the country icon,  

Reaching one billion performances is a rarified accomplishment, and it's not surprising that Garth Brooks is among the first artists to be recognized with the SoundExchange Digital Radio Award for achieving this significant milestone. 

After a 14-year break from touring, Brooks has returned to the stage. Since the start of his world tour in 2015, the country legend has broken ticket sales records around the globe, all of which he had previously set himself.  

Not to mention, Brooks is the first country artist to receive this honor.

Congrats Garth Brooks, on this well-deserved honor!
