Garth Brooks’ performance at Nissan Stadium stirs deep emotions

“Nashville knows its country music. So when you play a gig here, you have to be at your best,” Garth Brooks said during an hour-long press conference before taking the stage at Nissan Stadium in Nashville to the first of two nights. .

Even hours before the show, the Country Hall of Famer’s emotions were running high as he prepared for his highly anticipated return to Music City after a rainstorm last summer.

“If I was at that show that went down the drain, where we had 70,000 hot, sweaty people at (Nissan Stadium) with a no-mask COVID protocol, I would’ve (not been back),” Brooks said, adamantly. This event kicked off under overcast skies with Chris Young, Emmylou Harris and Brooks’ wife, Trisha Yearwood. Spectators sheltered in the stadium halls until 90 minutes later when the show was canceled altogether.
