Out of Garth Brooks‘ entire catalog of hit songs, none is more recognizable than “Friends in Low Places.” From the second a country fan hears those first few iconic words, they can’t help but sing along.

Since “Friends in Low Places” is almost as much of a phenomenon as Brooks himself, it is a major highlight of his live performances and his current World Tour. Fans from all over have packed into sold-out venues across the country to see Brooks sing the song in person, and of course, to get a chance to hear the famous “third verse.”

Although “Friends in Low Places” is often the best part of Brooks’ shows, one audience during a May 1 concert in Des Moines, Iowa was in for a real treat.

As it turns out, Brooks had a special guest on hand to sing a surprise duet of “Friends in Low Places.” So who was the guest? NFL player Dallas Clark, who played college football for the University of Iowa Hawkeyes. 

Brooks let Clark take the lead from the get-go, and Clark knew every single word by heart. Finally, Brooks joined in as well, and the duo worked the stage with a high level of energy, and they crowd was thrilled.

They finished the entire performance with a bang, and the crowd went wild. It’s clear they enjoyed Clark’s collaboration with Brooks!

You can watch these two perform “Friends in Low Places” in the video below. We would love to see Brooks bring other surprise guests on stage when he performs this song in the future!
