Beginning this summer, TuneIn will host Brooks’ SEVENS Radio Network, which will include multiple stations dedicated to country music and more, all conceived and curated by the country artist.

The network will be available exclusively on TuneIn for its 75 million monthly active listeners, worldwide.

“I’m excited about the future of TuneIn and feel lucky to announce a partnership with them,” said Brooks in a statement. “The thought of a global network of stations uniting all music fans is something I want to be a part of. The possibilities are bigger than I can dream.”

The partnership will also help promote some unique advertising opportunities to expand the platform and Brooks’ reach to new audiences. Listeners also have access to more than 100,000 radio stations on TuneIn.

“Garth Brooks is a tireless entrepreneur and one of the most recognizable stars in the world. When he shared his vision for SEVENS Radio, we knew TuneIn should be his home,” said Rich Stern, CEO of TuneIn, in a statement. “At TuneIn, we believe in the power of radio and those artists who are passionate about it. Garth and the entire SEVENS team are creating something we believe fans will love and we’re so proud to have them on TuneIn.”

In addition to his latest venture in radio, Brooks is also co-hosting the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards with Dolly Parton on Thursday (May 11). The ACM ceremony will air live from the Dallas Cowboys practice stadium, The Ford Center, in Frisco, Texas, and marks the first time Brooks has hosted an awards show.

Brooks recently added a no cell phone policy to his upcoming Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which will kick off on May 18 and continue on with dates in June, July, November, December, and into 2024.
