Garth Brooks is kicking off his Nashville concerts to support flood relief efforts.  He'll rock it out on stage for 9 shows, 2 of them tonight.  Money raised is going to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which has been handing out donations to various charities in the area.  Garth is also using his shows to brighten the holidays for less fortunate children.  He's asking fans to bring toys to donate to the Marine Corps Reserves' Toy's For Tots program.

These shows will be the first time Garth has been on stage in Nashville in over a decade.  Brooks' wife, Trisha Yearwood will join him onstage during his 9 show run that he wants fans to leave saying "that's the best Garth show I've ever seen."
