Garth Brooks came out of retirement to help the people of flood-ravaged Nashville, Tennessee. Tickets for the Brooks benefit show went on sale Saturday morning and broke all records for ticket sales in the state, besting a Michael Jackson show.
The charity concert for flood relief now has ballooned from one show to nine with 140,000 tickets sold.
