Garth Brooks is about to get his own radio channel, SiriusXM announced Thursday: The Grammy-winning country star and broadcasting company are partnering to launch the Garth Channel, which will feature music from Brooks himself along with tracks from the artists that have influenced him, this fall.

“It’s rare to be handed an opportunity that can grow as big as you can dream,” Brooks said in a statement. “That is exactly what SiriusXM has just done. I speak for myself and the entire team when I say we are very grateful for this opportunity and very excited about its potential.”

Brooks has released 10 studio albums since debuting with his self-titled in 1989 and has earned the title of America’s best-selling solo artist of all time. He’s currently on the Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood, which kicked off in 2014, and continues Friday, when he’ll play in New York City for the first time in nearly 20 years at Yankee Stadium. 

The Garth Channel, both curated and presented by Brooks, premieres Sept. 8.
