During his second consecutive show in Nashville, country superstar Garth Brooks included something very rare in his setlist – a cover.
Towards the end of a hit-filled night, Brooks told the crowd that he had something very special planned for the evening. He’s been recording special songs at select shows for a highly-anticipated live album. This time around, he opted to cover a classic tune from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
In the video above, you can see Brooks put his own spin on their 1987 hit “Fishin’ In The Dark.” After nearly two hours of sing-alongs from the crowd, fans once again sang happily along with the tune.
It was one of many highlights during the lengthy performance, which also marked Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood’s 12th wedding anniversary. The pair shared many emotional moments on stage together through the set. Brooks serenaded her with his cover of “To Make You Feel My Love,” and surprised her by having flower bouquets delivered on stage while she sang through her hits “XXX’s and OOO’s” and “Wrong Side of Memphis.”
It’s unclear when Brooks’ new live album will drop, but Nashville marks his final stop on this leg of his current North American tour.
