“Don’t you love Steve Wariner?” Brooks said upon entering the Opry circle, before Wariner chimed in saying, “GB you’ve made it for me, that’s awesome. Ain’t he the best y’all, I mean come on.” Brooks went on to congratulate Wariner on 25 years before he and Brooks performed several songs together on the Opry stage.
