Seat Geek/Ian Maika Facebook
Ontario-born Ian Maika started his camera and sat on a stool with his guitar. Without any introduction, he began strumming his guitar and singing the Garth Brooks song “Learning To Live Again”.
The second he started singing, we had to do a double take to make sure he wasn’t actually Garth Brooks.
When Maika posted this video on Facebook, his friends, family, and new fans thought he sounds so much like Brooks, or Brooks sounds so much like him, that one commented, “I think you should sue Garth Brooks for impersonating you!”
Brooks released “Learning To Live Again” in 1993 as the third single from his album The Chase. It reached No. 2 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart and was also included on Brooks’ 2007 compilation album, The Ultimates Hits.
He plays the guitar like a pro and sings as if he’s done it professionally for decades. We sure hope this isn’t the last we hear of Mr. Maika because he’s awesome!
