Garth Brooks has partnered with TuneIn Radio to launch ‘Tailgate Radio,’ aimed at sports fans who love college football.
Tailgate Radio is exclusive to TuneIn and will feature complete coverage of the 2023 college football season. Maria Taylor hosts the station and weaves her vast sports knowledge and insight with a music playlist to keep listeners’ energy high while tailgating or throwing a party at home.
“Working closely with Garth and his foundation as we created the PowHER program, which mentors middle school girls, has been nothing short of amazing,” adds Taylor. “And now, we’re embarking on Garth’s extraordinary vision to connect sports and music fans with Tailgate. It’s such an honor to be chosen by greatness to be a partner in the radio space.”
Some of the shows that will launch on Tailgate Radio include:
- Tailgate Top 20 with Maria | Maria Taylor DJs a weekly countdown highlighting the 20 biggest songs across genres from a specific year, while also highlighting the biggest sports stories of that year.
- Block Party | A four-hour mix show for Saturday night featuring everything from Luke Combs to Beyonce to Eminem.
- Tailgate Takeover | Starting with Garth Brooks as host, celebrities and athletes take turns guest hosting the program, giving listeners a window into the music and playlists that sets the vibe for the host.
“This is one of those ideas someone says, ‘Why didn’t we do this a long time ago?'” adds Brooks about Tailgate Radio. “This combines everyone’s passion for sports and music. It also allows you to enjoy your tailgate, barbecue, or poolside party without doing the work. There’s so much music on this channel, Tailgate Radio will be everyone’s favorite.”
Tailgate Radio is the second channel from the SEVENS Radio Network that is exclusively available on TuneIn Radio. The network launched The Big 615 in June 2023 with host Storme Warren, and it has quickly become one of the highest-performing stations for TuneIn.
