You might think that CMA hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley referring to one particular performer as the brightest star in the room twice in one night would ruffle some feathers in the country music community — except, oh wait, they’re talking about Garth Brooks. And based on sales and impact, it’s pretty damn hard to argue with that claim.
Brooks performed “Ask Me How I Know,” the second single from his 2017 album, Gunslinger, and his first top 10 hit since 2007 (it peaked at No. 9 on the Country Airplay chart), to an enthusiastic audience.
As always, the tried-and-true road warrior sounded full-throated and flawless performing live, exuding the same skill and confidence that’s made him a living legend. Watch below.
