prom garth

During his show this past Saturday in Champaign, IL, Garth Brooks noticed a sign that stuck out in the audience. The sign, held by longtime fan Kate, read, “Gonna be late to PROM. Garth comes FIRST!” Brooks noticed the sign instantly, and took some time to interact with the fan who chose her favorite country music star over a night at the prom. Brooks then found out Kate did not have a date to the big dance, and suggested they make their own fun at the concert. Brooks played his song Ireland per her request and even invited her up on stage to help out with the t-shirt cannon during his hit song “Friends in Low Places.” After the show that evening, Brooks invited Kate backstage to take some official “Prom” photos!
