Garth Brooks’ 4 millionth fan gets GR concert surprise

Country duo treats teacher to prize package, TMZ reports

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Garth Brooks fan’s unanswered prayers must have been heard by the country music superstar.

TMZ is reporting a teacher who attended Thursday night’s performance in Grand Rapids’ Van Andel Arena was the 4 millionth fan to buy a ticket to a Garth Brooks’ concert.

The country superstar’s entourage marked the milestone by bringing the female fan backstage to meet Garth Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood. She also received a new red Corvette and black Jeep Cherokee, a $5,000 shopping spree and a 4-person trip to Las Vegas, according to TMZ.

And the surprises didn’t stop there. The country duo is also paying off the woman’s student loans, TMZ reported.

Brooks performed a total of six shows at the Van Andel Arena over the course of four days.

Brooks told 24 Hour News 8 before the concert series that “it’s just something about the music” that makes him play so many shows.

“You can be worn out, your voice is gone, they (the fans) don’t care,” he continued. “They get to sing more, which I think makes them even happier. So it’s a no-lose situation. Just go out there and have fun every night, give it all you got. And someday, good Lord’s gonna say, ‘That it,’ and when He does there ain’t another day you’re gonna buy, so just go out and have fun, let it swing.”

As promised, Brooks performed many of the 1990s songs that fans know and love. Many concert-goers praised his high level of energy despite back-to-back shows.
