Justin has friends in high places in the country music world – like Garth Brooks! The singer gave fans at his Nashville concert on Dec. 19. an early Christmas present when he brought Garth out to sing a rousing cover of his classic “Friends in Low Places.”
Justin Timberlake, 33, broke out the acoustic guitar during his concert at Bridgestone Arena in Music City, for a cover version of the Garth Brooks classic, “Friends in Low Places.” Making things even more special was when he stopped the music and brought the 52-year-old country icon on stage to sing with him.
Justin Timberlake and Garth Brooks Perform ‘Friends In Low Places’
Justin already had the fans at the Bridgestone Arena in Music City to a frenzy when partway through the song, he stopped and said, “Hold on, now something don’t feel right, something don’t feel right, Nashville.” He then added, “I mean, if you’re going to do this — Garth?”
The screaming fans in the packed arena went absolutely wild when Garth walked out, gave Justin a big bear hug and started belting out the second verse.
Garth went on to lead Justin and the crowd in the song’s “lost” third verse, which was not featured on the recording, saying, “People, we gotta show the young guy how to do it.”
Justin Is A Big Fan
Justin, a native of Memphis, is clearly a big fan of Garth’s. Earlier this month he showed up at the country legends St. Louis show on Dec. 4, and then covered “Friends in Low Places” at his own concert the following night in Oklahoma City.
Justin and Garth had an amazing time bouncing around the stage with big smiles on their faces, even getting on their knees and bowing to one and other. The country crooner later took to Instagram where he posted a great video from the stage as he performed with Justin.
What do you think HollywoodLifers, should Justin go country?
