Garth Brooks made an explosive mark on the world of country music with the release of his 1990 smash hit, “Friends in Low Places.” While the country singer was a relatively unknown artist at the time of its release, the song went on to transform Brooks into a household name.

Since the release of “Friends in Low Places,” artists of all walks of music have performed their take on the tune. At a concert taking place in Melkweg, Amsterdam back in March, Darius Rucker performed a rowdy rendition of Brooks’ iconic tune. 

“‘Cause I’ve got friends in low places/ Where the whiskey drowns/ And the beer chases my blues away/ And I’ll be okay,” sings Rucker. “I’m not big on social graces/ 
Think I’ll slip on down to the oasis/  Oh, I’ve got friends in low places.”

“Friends in Low Places” was the lead single off Brooks’ album No Fences, earning him both an ACM Award as well as a CMA Award for “Single of the Year.” In addition to the song’s massive success in the United States, “Friends in Low Places” was a success on an international scale, charting in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, and the United Kingdom.
