One of Owensboro's best qualities, in my opinion, is its proximity to several major metropolitan areas.

How many of you think it's nothing to drive to Nashville, Louisville, St. Louis, Indy, or Cincinnati for a day trip?

Even Atlanta and Chicago aren't prohibitively long distances.

I'd imagine, if you're a fan, a jaunt to Paul Brown Stadium to see Garth Brooks in his element wouldn't phase you at all, right?

Well, get ready Garth Brooks road warriors, because he's coming to Cincy.

That's right. On May 16th at 7PM, Garth will light up the Bengals' home field for one of his patented stadium extravaganzas...where, I think, he feels most at home.

Bengals.com tells us that tickets will go on sale Friday, December 13th, at 10AM ET and will be available at Ticketmaster.com, by phone on the special Garth Brooks Line at Ticketmaster--1-877-654-2784--or the Ticketmaster app.
