Garth Brooks Halloween costumes consisting of checker-patterned Western shirts, cowboy hats, belt buckles and headsets have been pretty common for over 25 years, with the country star's wife Trisha Yearwood joining in on the fun in a recent episode of her Food Network series Trisha's Southern Kitchen. You might even say that dressing as the "Friends in Low Places" singer should be classified as low-hanging fruit when vying for Best Halloween Costume prizes.
That is, unless you literally dress as Brooks inside a sold-out stadium -- a potential new trend started by the nephew of Andrea Houser.
"Tonight I am Callin' Baton Rouge and all of Knoxville over my nephew's amazing 'Garth at Neyland Stadium' costume," Houser wrote. "Cause We ain't goin down til the Sun Comes Up being so excited over the Stadium Tour being at Neyland in a couple weeks. Even if The Thunder Rolls, we have enough Friends in Low Places to be completely Shameless over this concert! And if Tomorrow Never Comes, this Halloween costume will be More than a Memory for all of us celebrating The Dance tonight."
The attached photo shows Houser's nephew dressed as Brooks, as shown on the cover of his 1992 album The Chase. Either the youngster wants to go swimming, or that inflatable represents Neyland Stadium, the Knoxville home of college football's Tennessee Volunteers.
"This costume WINS Halloween in my book," Brooks wrote back to Houser via Instagram. "ASK ME HOW I KNOW your nephew is MUCH TOO YOUNG to be spending the weekend in the deep end of a DIVE BAR, but for making my Halloween does he want to be our guest at #GARTHinKNOXVILLE?"
Brooks will perform at Neyland Stadium for the first time on Sat., Nov. 16.
