“Friends in Low Places…”

Hey y’all!

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!

Colby and I met Momma and Daddy at our hotel in Tulsa, got concert-ready super fast, and headed for a quick dinner. We tried to take pictures, but little brothers happen…

This was my fourth concert at the BOK Center, and it is one of my favorite concert venues. It’s big, but it still has a smaller feel, and the music sounds amazing!

The BOK Center renamed the streets after Garth songs! It was very cool, so of course we had to take a few pictures!

When we finally got inside, seeing the giant ‘g’ on the stage made me SO EXCITED!!

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.

Karyn Rochelle, an awesome singer/songwriter opened the show, and then it was time for Garth! The lights went down, a countdown started, and then…there he was!

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!

Seriously, he was climbing on the set!

Partway through the show, Trisha Yearwood joined him for their song “In Another’s Eyes”. Their voices are amazing together, and they are seriously so cute!

Garth took a little break while Trisha sang a few of her songs, including her new single “Prize Fighter” and my personal favorite “She’s In Love With The Boy”!

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!

    He favorited one of your tweets?! OH EM GEEEEEEEEEEE! & yes, I went twice, and I totally bawled during the Dance both times! That song just totally gets me all emotional and now it will always be a special memory because we were there when he took the sign from Theresa Shaw! I’m thinking I need to go again, because you can truly never get enough Garth!
