During a performance at the Grand Ole Opry, McCreery captivated the crowd with a Brooks' favorite, "The Dance."
A confident McCreery walked on the famous stage and asked the crowd,
Got any Garth fans in here tonight? Yeah! We're gonna sing you one of his songs tonight, it's a little bit about heartbreak and a little bit about love, so here we go.
And with that, McCreery began his incredible cover of one of country music's most well-known songs.
McCreery handled the song like a pro, giving it the classic country feel it was meant to have. With his incredible vocal skills, and his smooth gestures, the performance was really something special!
"The Dance" was released by Brooks as the fourth and final single from his debut album, Garth Brooks. The song became Brooks' second No. 1 hit of his career, topping the US Hot Country Songs in early 1990.
"The Dance" is considered one of Brooks' signature songs.
In a 1994 interview with Playboy, Brooks attributed his success to two hit songs: "The Dance" and "Friends in Low Places." He said,
The Dance will be the greatest success as a song we will ever do. I'll go to my grave with The Dance. It'll probably always be my favorite song.
It'll always be a classic.
