Andrew Nelles / The Tennessean
Garth Brooks kicked off a huge celebration in Nashville, Tennessee in 2016 for an eager crowd. The night was dedicated to his supportive fans who helped the legend achieve this notable, and highly regarded, 7th Diamond Award, giving him more Diamonds than The Beatles!
Brooks had friends pay tribute to him including Reba McEntire, Chris Young, Kelly Clarkson, and more. It was a long night, but luckily, we’ve got the inside scoop on waht went down!
McEntire performed “Not Counting On You”…
Clarkson performed ‘We Shall Be Free” …
Young sang “The River”…
And Jason Aldean joined him for “I’m Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old).”
The highlight of the night, though, was his jolting performance of perhaps his most iconic hit, “Friends In Low Places” that brought the audience to their peak of excitement! The singer opened the song alone, pumping up the crowd while clearly having the time of his life! As the song progressed, Brooks was suddenly joined by his loving wife, Trisha Yearwood, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Young and other performers!
The entourage brought down the stage with their beyond belief vocal talent and infectious stage presence! As the song ended, the audience sent them on their way in incessant cheers and shouts of support! Brooks was so proud he couldn’t help but grin while basking in the praise. Check out the killer performance below!
