Garth Brooks Inducted Into Country Music Hall of Fame by George Strait and More.
Sunday, October 21st, Garth Brooks was officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and some very iconic artists had some very kind words to share! According to The Tennessean, George Strait and Bob Seger had a little something to say about the country music artist!
“I think passion best describes him. He’s got it. You see it when he sings on TV or at concerts … I remember hearing about him on stage swinging on ropes and throwing things, and I said, ‘This is country music. Can you do that?’ He blew it up, man. Yes he could do that. And you can see it today in all the young acts that were influenced by you. It’s amazing.” – George Strait
“What I admire about Garth is his passion, he’s just never afraid to be passionate. I also love the fact that with his enormous success, his historic success, he’s still a really good guy. He wears it well.” – Bob Seger
James Taylor was also in attendance and along with Robert Bailey, Vicki Hampton and Trisha Yearwood sang a rendition of Brooks’ hit “The River“. What a special performance that must have been! That wasn’t the only one though, George Strait also shared a song by singing
“Much Too Young to Feel This Damn Old“.
