Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood in Greenville for first time in 25 years
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) —
Friday night's sold-out Garth Brooks concert in Greenville is the first of three shows at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
Garth Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, have been traveling for months on their world tour.
Greenville was picked by Garth Brooks and his crew to be the last city on this year's world tour.
The crowd there was more than ready since he hasn't performed in Greenville in 25 years.
"I didn't think he'd be back here, so this is great!" Andrea Jackson, who's from Asheville, said.
"Now he's back and he's as great as ever and that's wonderful," Linda Vaughan, who's from Columbia, said.
Garth Brooks is on the road again and making a comeback.
He says he's just as excited as his fans about being back in Greenville.
"We had a great time the last time we played here, so we're back for more. The great thing is the pressure is not on us just so you know. It's on you guys because we remember what happened here last time and we've come back for more of it," Brooks said in a press conference Friday afternoon.
It's what he did back in the '90s, but this time around it's alongside his wife.
"This for us was an opportunity to get to go do what we both love to do but do it together, so when you're packing your bags to leave, you're leaving together," Trisha Yearwood said in a press conference Friday afternoon.
Aside from his new album, the two made a duet album called 'Christmas Together.'
During a one-on-one interview with News 13's Jerrika Insco, they both explained how special that holiday is at their house.
"Sitting around the table, saying your Christmas prayers together and eating together," Brooks said. "That's what it's all about."
"The one thing we've done as a family since the girls were little is we decorate the tree together," Yearwood said. "That's our thing."
His new album, 'Gunslinger,' drops next Friday, November 25.
"Here comes the most Garth album we've ever done!" Brooks said. "Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, the people will let us know."
Garth Brooks has sold out shows Saturday, November 19 and Sunday, November 20 in Greenville as well.
