Garth Brooks has made Billboardhistory… again. This time it’s for becoming the first artist to appear on the Hot Country Songs chart for the last five decades in a row. He accomplishes this feat with his latest single, his duet with Blake Shelton, “Dive Bar,” which climbs to No. 21 this week.
According to Billboard, Garth first appeared on the chart in 1989 and went on to chart tunes on the Hot Country Songs chart in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and now the ‘20s.
In total, Garth has landed 89 tunes on the Hot Country Songs chart, and that includes 19 Number One hits. And that’s just so far! Now that he’s back on the radio and on tour, Garth says he has no plans to leave again, “My retiring days are behind me. If they’re gonna get rid of me, they’re gonna have to throw me out now. They’ve made the mistake of letting me back in, and so I’m having the time of my life. ”
Garth continues his Stadium Tour on Feb. 22nd in Detroit, MI at Ford Field.
“Dive Bar” will be included on Garth’s upcoming studio album, Fun. No release date has been announced. Fun will also include his previous singles “All Day Long” and “Stronger Than Me.”
