Kicker – Friends in drive-in places

MARY REICHARD, HOST: The economy’s starting to open up and so are music concerts.

For example, fans of country star Garth Brooks will soon be able to see him in concert! And I don’t mean just online.

You’ll be able to get in your car—or pickup truck—and drive to the venues. 

The only catch is you’ll have to stay in your vehicles. Or at least on top of them. Because you’ll be at one of 300 drive-in movie theaters on June 27th, a week from this coming Saturday.

Brooks told Good Morning America…

BROOKS: You know, drive-ins aren’t like they were when we were kids. We had the speaker that you would put on your window. Well now, you just tune right into your own car radio. So you can blast it and blare it as loud as you want, windows up, windows down, sing along. This is a perfect way for us to still get to play music and still get to follow all the rules we’re under right now.

More musicians are in the works for the drive-in theater experience! 

As for me? I’m all in! As Brooks would sing, blame it all on my roots.
