Garth Brooks has always been able to rock the big arenas, as he and wife Trisha Yearwood are proving night after night on their crowd-pleasing “World Tour,” camping out for long runs of dates in certain cities and sometimes even playing two shows in the same day to meet demand. Those high-energy shows helped Garth earn his second consecutive (and sixth overall) CMA Entertainer of the Year award on Nov. 8.
