The Highway’s Al Skop picks his top Garth Brooks moments (+ one of his own!)

The SiriusXM Town Hall with Garth Brooks airs Wednesday 4/15 at 11 am and 2 pm ET, Thursday 4/16 at 9 pm ET, Saturday 4/18 at 5 pm ET, Monday 4/20 at 12 am ET, and Tuesday 4/21 at 6 pm ET on The Highway (Ch. 56).

Garth is an artist who cares deeply about every fan, and I know because I was backstage with him and a radio contest winner when his career was white hot. After a looong meet and greet that extended almost to showtime (much to the dismay of his manager and the thousands of fans waiting to see him), the contest winner showed Garth a drum head that her son had used. She was wondering if Garth’s drummer could sign it. Garth took the drum head, signed it and gave it to his manager and instructed him to “make sure every member of the band signs this … NOW … ”

Today, The Highway’s Storme Warren is taking you to Portland, OR for a SiriusXM Town Hall with Garth and special guest Trisha Yearwood, and it’s the subscribers who get to ask the questions!

To set the stage for this exclusive event, we wanted to share some or our favorite Garth moments with you.There are too many Garth songs to narrow down but here are some of my favorites:


(I love Billy Joel almost as much as I love Garth)

Longneck Bottle

Standing Outside The Fire

That Summer

Friends In Low Places

(I’ve never seen four notes picked on a guitar elicit such a long standing ovation in a concert … )

The Dance
