It doesn’t get much bigger than Garth Brooks and Justin Timberlake. Two guys who have made a career in different genres, got a little bit of hate for trying other genres, and came out on the other end unscathed. Brooks is currently still in “social media is awesome” mode, so he captured this whole special performance of “Friends In Low Places” and uploaded on stage. The clip above is from a fan, of course, unless Brooks threw someone out there on that Bioshock skyhook /zipline thing he used to ride at concerts.
Timberlake was performing at the Bridgestone Arena in Music City, and he broke out the acoustic guitar for a cover version of the Garth Brooks classic, ‘Friends in Low Places.’ Partway through the song, he stopped and said, “Hold on, now something don’t feel right, something don’t feel right, Nashville.”
He then added, “I mean, if you’re going to do this — Garth?”
Brooks then entered the stage to the screams of the fans, picking up the second verse as the packed arena went wild. He also led the crowd in a singalong of the song’s “lost” verse, which was not featured on the recording, but he sings at his live shows. (via)
If you’re a fan of either guy, moments don’t get much better than this one.
