Garth Brooks’ Nissan Stadium performance stirs deep emotions

“Nashville knows its country music. So, when you play a concert here, you’re required to be your best,” Garth Brooks remarked at an hour-long news conference before hitting the stage at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium for 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 eagerly anticipated return to Music City following a rainout last summer.

“If I was at that show that got rained out, where we had 70,000 hot, sweaty people in (Nissan Stadium) with a maskless COVID protocol, I would’ve (not come back),” said Brooks, flatly. That event kicked off under overcast skies with Chris Young, Emmylou Harris and Brooks’ wife, Trisha Yearwood. Concertgoers sheltered within the stadium concourses until 90 minutes later, when the show was canceled outright.
