The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour

Gainesville, FL

Brooks was a big hit in Gainesville Saturday night.

As country music legend Garth Brooks strutted on stage Saturday night in Gainesville, more than 75,000 fans erupted in a thunderous cheer.

The Swamp hadn’t heard a sound like it since October, when Florida defensive back Brad Stewart picked off a pass thrown by LSU quarterback Joe Burrows, returned it for a touchdown, and sealed a win for UF.

But this cheer, let out by less folks than that day in October, might have had a little more of a twang to it.

When Brooks opened with “All Day Long,” his loyal fans let him know his friends in low places had made it to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

“Hello Gator Nation!” Brooks screamed, wearing a black button-up shirt, blue jeans and a black cowboy hat. “I hope you came here to listen to some by-God country music!”
