Country legend Garth Brooks graced the Bridgestone Arena on his own at the 2018 Country Music Association Awards to debut a new love song, "Stronger Than Me."
Brooks performed the powerful ballad solo, with just a guitar for accompaniment. “Every now and then she just wants me to hold her/ But that don’t mean she’s weak," Brooks sang. "The fact that you’re unafraid to let your feelings show just means you’re stronger than me." The telecast cut to Brooks' real-life country superstar wife Trisha Yearwood throughout the rendition, clearly affected by her husband's performance.
