Country legend Garth Brooks turned 60 years old on Monday (February 7), but the genre’s best-selling artist of all time hasn’t slowed down as his golden years approach. The icon celebrated his big day with special shows … and a special cake.
Posting a few pics to his Instagram page, Brooks told fans that performing in Las Vegas was “the BEST way to spend” his birthday weekend. He was on hand for another round of his lauded one-man show, and once again hit the stage for back-to-back nights on February 4-5. But back home, he had a more personal moment waiting.
Inviting fans along for the party on his Inside Studio G Facebook live show, Brooks was gifted with a down-home celebration that was super-relatable. Standing in front of a balloon arch in his hoodie and ball cap, the superstar’s family and team gave him a whole table full of his favorite things. And what do you get the man who could buy just about anything? Dr. Pepper and peanut butter M&Ms, of course, plus a what looks like a gigantic homemade Rice Krispies cake and a gag-gift trophy of a cow that says “To G From T … You Know.”
That must obviously be an inside joke between Brooks and his country star wife, Trisha Yearwood, but what it means I have no idea. Feel free to fill me in below! And happy belated birthday to Mr. Garth Brooks.
