From winning Entertainer of the Year to selling out his newest tour dates, 2016 is turning out to be Garth Brooks’ year.

Garth Brooks already has plenty to brag about when it comes to making country music history. On November 2, he was awarded the prestigious Artist of the Year Award at the annual CMAs, an honor bestowed on him five times now – a first for any artist. And he’s currently the only artist to receive seven Diamond Awards for his seven albums certified by the RIAA. With more than 138 million album sales, he remains the No. 1 solo artist in U.S. history.

Brooks’ career just nabbed another first: Sales for his three-year Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood have approached upwards of 5 million tickets, making it the biggest tour in the world. And with the announcement of four new location dates — Memphis, Cincinnati, Edmonton, and a one-night show in Albany, New York — tickets sales have seen another huge bump.

If you’re interested in the highly coveted tickets, be sure to check online for updates as tickets are going fast. In Cincinnati, he’s sold more than 80,000 tickets; in Memphis, more than 58,000 (breaking his previous record from 1998 of 57,141); and in Edmonton, more than 140,000 (more than doubling his previous record or 50,871 in 1996).
