Garth Brooks delivered a medley of hits spanning his legendary thirty-plus year career on Wednesday (Oct. 14) at the Billboard Music Awards.

The country superstar’s performance included hits like “The Thunder Rolls,” “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” “The River,” “Standing Outside The Fire,” “That Summer,” “Dive Bar,” “The Dance” and of course “Friends In Low Places.”

Following his incredible performance, Brooks accepted the Billboard Icon Award.

Brooks, a 19-time Billboard Music Award winner, is one of only nine artists to ever receive the prestigious award and follows Cher, Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.

The “Dive Bar” singer is the No. 1 selling solo artist in the history of the United States and is the first, and only, artist to have eight diamond-certified albums that each had over 10 million album sales.

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards also featured performances from Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Demi Lovato, Post Malone, BTS, Brandy, Alicia Keys, Doja Cat, Sia and more. The Billboard Music Awards are produced by Dick Clark Productions. Amy Thurlow, Mark Bracco, Barry Adelman, Linda Gierahn, Kelly Clarkson and Robert Deaton are executive producers.

Hosted by Kelly Clarkson, the star-studded event aired on Wednesday, October 14 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on NBC.

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards were originally scheduled to take place in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 29, but were forced to be postponed due to the ongoing pandemic.
