So my twitter feed is full of the news that Garth Brooks joined Justin Timberlake on stage to sing Friends in Low Places.
I watched this clip this morning, with a huge stupid grin on my face. Firstly, the crowd know the song Justin is about to sing just from the opening chords. I love this… they are happily singing along with no idea what is coming next… This is why I love a special guest at a concert and they don’t get more special than Garth Brooks. Once he’s on stage its just so lovely to see him and Justin dancing and singing together and to hear the crowd singing the song back. It gives me goosebumps just watching it, I can’t begin to imagine what it would’ve been like to be there.
Garth Brooks was one of my first introductions into Country music and remains one of my favourite musicians. I hope I get to see him live one day, that dream almost came true this year and then Croke Park was cancelled. I hope that his current tour swings by the UK at some point.
Until then I’ll just enjoy watching this…
