More Info:
Garth Brooks’ “G-Men” are a group of musicians who have played with ‪him‬ on all of his studio albums resulting in sales totaling over 140 million albums and CDs. They are also inductees into The Musicians Hall of Fame. The G-Men that will be performing are Bobby Wood on Piano, Milton Sledge on Drums, Bruce Bouton on Steel Guitar and Dobro (also from touring band) and Chris Leuzinger on Lead Guitar.

Joining the G-Men from Garth's touring band are Jimmy Mattingly on Fiddle and Steve Cox on Piano/Organ/Strings. Amazing musicians who have toured with Garth and Trisha for many years.

Rounding out the Musicians will be Jeff Jenkins on Bass Guitar, a personal friend of original G Men Bassist, Mike Chapman. Mike passed in 2016 and Jeff along with his friends at the Nashville Bass Hang, put together a tribute concert along with the G-Men in December of 2016 in honor of Mike’s work with Garth. Jeff also filled in during a live performance with the G-Men in Mike’s honor when Garth and the G-Men were inducted into the Musicians Hall Of Fame in October of 2016.
