 Garth Brooks had a beautiful surprise for Autzen Stadium in Eugene,OR this past Saturday night. A stunning choir of 800 singers! The choir made their entrance down the aisles of the floor and from high up on the concourse.

They joined Garth for “We Shall Be Free” and the classic R&B song “Shout.” The choir was led by Brooks’ longtime singer and Oregon native, Robert Bailey. In the introduction, Garth shared that Robert Bailey is actually featured in the iconic scene in Animal House singing “Shout.”

Garth also revealed that the songs were recorded for a live album. 

It was the largest paid attendance in the history of Autzen Stadium in Eugene, OR. 

Garth Brooks just launched The Stadium Tour and has already set massive records in the first nine stadiums they announced. Garth has also now gone vinyl with a new package titled, LEGACY. During the first pre-sale, Garth smashed records with 20,000 packages sold in under 18 hours, that’s 420,000 vinyl records. Forbes noted, “To put this in context, The Beatles were the number-one vinyl artist in 2018 with 321,000 sales over 12 months.” Additionally, Garth just received iHeartRadio’s inaugural Artist of the Decade Award at the iHeartRadio Awards in Los Angeles.

Nearly 14 million watched. On November 20th, 2018 Garth released The Anthology Part III, LIVE. It’s a detailed look at the electrifying concerts of Garth Brooks. Garth Brooks debuted new music, “Stronger Than Me” at the CMA Awards. It was a surprise serenade to wife, Trisha Yearwood, that left everyone in tears.
