Tickets for Brooks' concert go on sale June 19 at 10:00 a.m. MT and will cost $100. You can buy tickets here.

"They're going to run it just like a regular concert, but this is going to be all over North America, one night only," Brooks said on "Good Morning America." "We are excited because this is a reason to get out of the house, but at the same time you get to follow all the Covid rules from every individual state and you get to have fun and stay within the guidelines of social distancing ... we're calling it 'social distancing partying.'"

Drive-in concerts, with people socially distanced in their cars, are popping up in parts of Europe and throughout the United States, as the coronavirus pandemic puts a hold on large public gatherings.

Keith Urban and DJ D-Nice were among the first major artists to perform at drive-in shows.

CNN recently spoke to Adam Alpert, CEO of Sony's Disruptor Records, who said until there's a vaccine for coronavirus, the music industry has to get innovative.

"Clearly there is demand for live concerts," Alpert said. "People miss live music. They miss seeing their favorite artists. They miss the magic and energy that seeing live music brings ... [Musical artists] are itching to get out, but we have to wait until it's safe. I think artists and promoters and venues are resilient and they're going to try and look for new ways to make live music safe in these uncertain times."

Tickets to be available June 19, and the Motor-Vu Drive-in will be charging by the carload. A regular SUV is the max size car, and everyone must have a seatbelt.
