Garth Brooks gushed over country icon Randy Travis in his Amazon Music livestream on Friday (Nov. 20).

“We’ve been lucky enough to hear the greatest of all time in guys like Randy Travis,” Brooks said. “I think he single handedly saved country music in the 80s and for country music to follow from there. I know I’m one of the benefactors for Randy Travis coming when he did.”

After gushing over the “Forever And Ever, Amen” singer, the country superstar performed an exceptional cover of Travis’ “I Told You So” for over 11 thousand livestream viewers. The video of the performance has since been removed from social media, but Brooks previously performed the song live during one of his concerts and you can watch that HERE.

Brooks’ released Triple Live Deluxe and his twelfth studio album, FUN, today and was performing live for fans in support of the new record’s release.
