Did y’all really think I would go to a Garth Brooks concert and not post about it? :)
The concert was amazing. If I could’ve gone again the next night, I totally would have. It was THAT GOOD!
I had been tweeting about the concert pretty much all day, talking about how excited I was, sharing pictures, things like that. While we were waiting for the concert to start, I got a message on my phone from Twitter…and then I screamed.
He opened the show with “Man Against Machine” from the new album before going right into a wonderful mix of his greatest hits, including “Rodeo”, “The Beaches of Cheyenne”, and “Ain’t Goin’ Down (Til The Sun Comes Up)”.
I was blown away by his energy on stage. I don’t think he ever stopped moving. I was exhausted at the end of the night from standing and sorta dancing, so I don’t know how he kept going with all of the running and jumping he did, on top of the singing!
I was surprised at how emotional I was! I knew I would probably cry when he sang “The Dance”, because it’s my favorite song and I cried when he sang it at the Toby Keith concert, but I didn’t expect to cry during “The River” or “Unanswered Prayers” too!
It was such a great night! I’ve seriously been a huge fan of Garth’s since he released his very first album, and I’ve wanted to see him in concert ever since! When he performed at Toby Keith’s tornado relief concert, I got a tiny little taste of what a Garth show is like, and I can honestly say it was well worth the wait. Not only does he have a great voice and great songs, but you can tell he genuinely enjoys what he’s doing. He was born to make music, and I’m so glad that I got to spend an evening watching him bring these songs to life.
If you ever get a chance to go see him, go! Even if you’re not a huge country music fan, go! You won’t regret it, I promise!
