Garth Brooks….The Rescue Party …Nashville 2010
By Butch Worrell
Garth Brooks came out of retirement to give back to the city of Nashville’s flood victims. In 5 days he performed 9 sold shows to 140,000 ecstatic fans, raising close to 5 million dollars. Joined by Trisha Yearwood, Steve Warnier, and his original touring band, Garth put on a series of incredible shows, showing that he still had the magic. I have never heard the crowd roar for a performer like they did for Garth night after night. His fans are unique in that they seemed to know the words to all his songs, at times he would ask the crowd to help him sing, and how they responded. Those who attended will talk about these shows for years to come, but if you didn’t make the shows the shows were filmed and there will be a DVD to see what you missed. I can’t wait to relive it myself.
