Garth Brooks gave a 12-year-old fan and her sister the gift of a lifetime during his Kansas City stadium concert.
In a clip shared on TikTok, the country superstar is seen on stage talking to a young fan holding a sign while sitting on her father’s shoulders and her sister who was standing beside them.
“Garth… It’s our 1st concert,” the sign Brooks spotted in the audience at Brooks’ Arrowhead Stadium show on Saturday (Aug. 7) read.
After seeing the fan wearing a purple shirt with his name on it and holding a homemade sign, the country icon stopped and talked to her before making her first concert one she will never forget.
“This is your first concert? Really? We should sign something really nice,” Brooks said before spotting that he and the two fans both have the same first initial in their first names.
“What has a ‘G’ on it that I’m thinking of?” Brooks said as he looked at the young fan and her Dad. Brooks, referencing his signature acoustic guitar, then unstraps his guitar and signs it, personalizing his autograph with the young fan and her sister’s names.
“Your name starts with ‘G,’ my name starts with ‘G.’ Let me see that sign again, Giada and Giules,” Brooks said as he read their names and signed the guitar.
Brooks then gave the signed guitar to Giada and her father, who were in shock as he handed it to them.
“I love you guys, enjoy your first show,” Brooks added.

Additionally, following Brooks’ upcoming August 14 stadium concert in Nebraska, he will be reassessing the shows to see if he will be able to proceed with his forthcoming concert due to the worsening global health crisis, ultimately having to decide the fate of his upcoming appearances.
“It breaks my heart to see city after city go on sale and then have to ask those sweet people and the venues to reschedule,” Brooks said in a press release. “We have a three week window coming up where we, as a group, will assess the remainder of the stadium tour this year. It’s humbling to see people put this much faith in you as an artist, and it kills me to think I am letting them down.”
