In late July, Garth Brooks confirmed that Atlanta will be the second city to host his upcoming 2014 world tour. Catch his 6:30 p.m. EST show on Friday, Sept. 19 to kick off your weekend with a live performance of some of the most enduring country tunes of all time, including Brooks' age-old classic "Friends in Low Places."

Brooks' wife, Trisha Yearwood, will join him on stage for this performance.
