Feeling the walls closing in, eh Garth?

Garth Brooks just announced a new docuseries coming to Amazon Prime Video that will give a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of his new Nashville bar, Friends In Low Places.

“Paying tribute to his roots, Garth enlists the help of his friends, day-one tour team and an all-star hospitality group to open the epic, four-story bar on Lower Broadway. This is a labor of love and his thank you to the community of Music City.”

In announcing the new documentary, Garth spoke on what it’s been like getting his bar ready for the world to see:

“This was so much more than I bargained for! With that said, what we have built is far more than just a business. This is by far, the craziest ride I have ever been on.”

And in a teaser, Garth spoke on enlisting his “day one team” to help make his dream a reality.

But folks online were quick to notice something about Garth’s tweet announcing the new series: He disabled replies.

Got something to hide there, G?

Comments were also turned off on Instagram, which has become a common theme for Garth these days after everything he posts is immediately flooded with “where are the bodies” comments.

If you’re not familiar, the whole thing started as a joke back in 2018 when comedian Tom Segura and his wife, fellow comedian Christina Pazsitzky, stumbled upon the downright hysterical announcement video for Garth’s Stadium Tour. You know, the one he wanted to call the Big Ass Stadium Tour?

It’s the one where he said he wanted to “get physical playing music” and how much he “likes that.”

If you don’t remember, here’s a refresher…

Thanks to that video, Tom and Christina P came to the (inevitable, really) conclusion that Garth must be a serial killer with somewhere in the neighborhood of 200-300 bodies buried in his yard.

And the rest was history.

Thanks to an internet joke, Garth Brooks, the Country Music Hall of Famer, one of the greatest live acts in country music history, selling out professional football stadium after professional football stadium, had his entire comment section on Instagram and Twitter hijacked by the rabid following of two hilarious comedians.

And it’s gone on for YEARS.

Instead of putting an end to it by acknowledging the joke, laughing at it, letting us know that he’s in on it too, Garth has decided to take the opposite approach and completely ignore it, turning off comments on Instagram and even blocking Segura.

Which of course only makes things worse.

Now, all these years later, Garth is forced to restrict comments on his announcement about a documentary because fans will inevitably comment asking if it’s a true crime series, or if he has bodies buried beneath his bar, or if we’re going to finally get answers in this new documentary.

All of this could be avoided, Garth. Just come out and acknowledge the joke. It’ll be fine, I promise.

Until then, I guess we’re just left to assume that Garth is really hiding something (like 30-50 bodies).
