Country superstar Garth Brooks has been on a roll the last few days. He played the CMA Awards on Nov. 15 at shocked attendees by performing a brand new song, "Stronger Than Me," live and today he's announced dates for his 2019 "Stadium Tour."

There's only one Florida date in the books, and it's set for Gainesville, so Brooks fans are going to have to truck on over to the Swamp.

Garth Brooks headlines the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville on April 20, 2019, Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 29.
