What happens when Chris Stapleton has to cancel a performance?
Garth Brooks steps up to the plate.
On March 1, Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, showed their support for the Music Health Alliance during a fundraiser at the City Winery in Nashville, TN.
Brooks took the stage and explained to the crowd that while playing poker with the coordinator of the event, Mandy, he learned that Stapleton couldn't make it. He was asked to fill in, and he happily accepted.
Brooks then pulled out his secret, musical weapon. He announced,
Anywhere I go, I pull out the number one weapon for me which is Trisha Yearwood.
The surprised crowd went wild as Yearwood joined her husband on stage. Brooks told the audience, "We need to do something to represent Chris."
And with that he said,
'I'm not gonna be a dumb a** and try to sing a Chris Stapleton tune...' He jokingly pointed to his wife and said, 'She is, and this is about to get really good.'
Yearwood giggled as she stepped up to the mic.
While her husband played the guitar in the background, Yearwood sang the Stapleton-penned song, "If It Hadn't Been for Love," which was later recorded by Adele.
The couple sang the tune perfectly, and we're sure even Stapleton would have been impressed!
