Garth Brooks Crashes Facebook Live With Home Concert, Reschedules Charlotte Show for June 13

Garth Brooks tried his hand at the home-concert trend on Monday when he performed live for fans on Facebook. The only problem is, the country star’s show was so widely watched–with 3.4 million viewers tuning in–that it crashed Facebook Live several times. CNN reports that Brooks played alongside wife Trisha Yearwood, who joined him for a duet on Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s hit single “Shallow.” They also covered Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Tammy Wynette and George Jones’ “Golden Rings.” While Yearwood sang “Amazing Grace,” Brooks told fans, “We’re all in this together.”

In related coronavirus shutdown news, Brooks has reportedly rescheduled his upcoming show in Charlotte. The country superstar was supposed to perform at Bank of America Stadium on May 2, but is now slated to do so just six weeks later on June 13. “Like so many people right now, I just want to get back to what I do,” Brooks said in a statement. “Knowing these shows are eventually going to happen makes me happy.”
