Garth Brooks is celebrating his 58th birthday today!
Brooks' wife, country singer Trisha Yearwood, shared a special tribute to him on Instagram. "Happy birthday to my best friend, love of my life @garthbrooks," she captioned her post.
"You make 58 look gooooood," she added. "I love you!"
Before his big day, Brooks got one present a little early: He played to a packed house at the Six String in Foxborough, Massachusetts for the seventh stop of his Dive Bar Tour Wednesday.
After the show, Garth took to Facebook live for a new episode of his Inside Studio G series, still reveling in the energy of the stage.
“People! We just went on and it was frickin’ awesome,” he gushed. “It’s just a great way to start the year. I tell you right now, if everything in 2020’s like that, I’m fine.”
Over 900 fans attended Brooks' Foxborough tour stop; the only way to get into the show was to win tickets through local country radio stations.
The show had originally been planned for December of 2019 -- the same night Brooks played a Dive Bar Tour stop in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey -- but was rescheduled due to bad weather.
“It was a month late. I’m never that late to a gig!” Garth joked over Facebook live.
Though the seventh stop on the Dive Bar Tour was originally supposed to be its last, Brooks extended the run late last year, saying he loves playing the small venues too much to quit. Meanwhile, he’s simultaneously in the midst of a stadium tour.
