When semi-retired country music legend Garth Brooks announced he would perform a one-off concert in Kansas City, Mo., in November, the demand for tickets exploded, compelling Garth to add not one or two shows to the run, but eight(!) additional nights of concerts.

Garth, who has not toured actively in about six years, will be joined by wife, fellow country superstar Trisha Yearwood. The pair will play Kansas City's Sprint Center every night from Nov. 5 through Nov. 12 with one final (for now) show taking place on Nov. 14.

"He's still got that something special," one music insider tells OK!. "A lot of folks on the coasts forget how huge country music is — that it's the music of the heartland. And Garth is probably the biggest concert draw in the industry's history."

No plans yet on whether or not Garth will extend the run into a full-on nationwide tour.
