Imagine a stadium full of people (around 84,000 but who’s counting) just joyfully cheering your name & singing along to the songs you’ve written, recorded, & performed so many times. I just can’t even imagine what kind of feeling that produces in someone’s heart.
Well, that’s probably what Garth Brooks was feeling when performing at Mile High Stadium. The amount of energy the crowd brought alone made the concert experience that much more top notch (except for the guy next to me STOMPING, I mean STOMPING, to show his excitement instead of clapping and cheering like any normal human).
To be honest, though, I never really had the desire to go see Garth. I’m a newbie “bro country” fa, if you will, versus Garth’s classic style of country music. Yeah, hate me for that, but whatever. To each their own. But when a last minute ticket came up, how could I say no?! Let me tell you, I was so glad I was able to go and experience it. I knew maybe one song but was so in awe of him. The production. His lyrics.
I was especially moved when he sang Unanswered Prayers – it was almost a moment of worship for me & really spoke to my heart. “Just because he doesn’t answer doesn’t mean he don’t care. Some of Gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.” PREACH IT GARTH.
Now that I’ve been doing production for my church, that seems to be all I notice at concerts anymore. I’m always amazed at what kind of tricks are up the sleeves of the production crew when it comes to large events such as this one. I wasn’t sitting in the highest, upper section but I’m assuming they were given some sort of hand held lights that were controlled by Garth’s production team. There were many songs that were lit up & went along to the music & it was S’COOL. I guess instead of me explaining, just watch da video below 😎
I had to leave the show early as I had to work (woo, night shift) but all I really cared about was hearing Friends in Low Places & I did so I was a happy camper. Woo for that! Brings me back to the days when I lived in Nashville & the bars on broadway were swarming with this song. OVERALL, I was NOT disappointed. Now, I am fiening to actually listen to his music & attend another concert so I can belt out every lyric (it’s just more fun that way, don’t you think?)
I am DEF feeling that post concert depression, yo….
