I went to one of my bucket list concerts – and it was just as amazing as I hoped it would be. Garth Brooks did not let me down!
It’s been years since I’ve listened to country but I’m from Idaho and there is always going to be a little country in my blood. The Garth Brooks original box set were some of my very first CDs and then for Christmas one year, my brother gave me his live CD and it stayed in my disc player for months – I’d listen to it on the bus driving to and from my high school basketball games.
His songs are nostalgic. He came out singing a newer song which didn’t get the crowd going – but I started singing with him on the second song and sang along the whole concert (as did everyone we went with). It’s amazing how many lyrics your mind can recall after so many years. Confession: there was only one song he sang that night that I don’t love and I’ve never loved it: Friends in low places. I’d be okay to never hear it again. 🙂 But I could listen to him sing the rest of the songs all day long.
Steve’s not a concert guy, but even he can appreciate a legend like Garth Brooks and like everyone else, he knew every word.
