Garth Brooks made one teenager’s prom night a very special one, even though she didn’t end up going to the event.
Brooks spotted Kate in the crowd during a show in Champaign, Illinois over the weekend, holding a bright yellow sign that read, “Gonna be late to PROM. GARTH comes FIRST.”
Brooks called to her from the stage and asked her who she was going to prom with. When she said she didn’t have a date, he told her she should come back to his late show and help assist with shooting off his T-shirt cannons. She wound up skipping out on prom (can you blame her?) and came back later that night in her gown.
“Thus began one of the greatest memories I will ever have playing music live in a concert,” Brooks says, sharing ‘prom’ photos of himself, Kate, and her mother backstage
