When it comes to country music, the artists quite honestly are like one big family. In support of his highly anticipated free show in Nashville, Garth Brooks decided to bring on some help to his lineup with the addition of Chris Young to the roster.

Extending the invitation in a more modern way, Brooks approached Young through the means of Twitter after seeing Young post a quick Snapchat to the Tennessee Department of Tourism story. While the exchange may seem casual, it’s a pretty big deal on both ends for the once-in-a-lifetime show in Music City.

“Hey @ChrisYoungMusic I saw your snap on TENNESSEE snapchat! Want to join me 10.24 in Nashville & sing together? 🙂 love, g #MadeInTN,” he wrote to Young, who immediately accepted the generous offer.

A few weeks ago, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam made the announcement alongside Brooks in Nashville about the big show planned in coordination to an initiative called “The Soundtrack of America.” As one of the most well-known faces in country music, Haslam thought Brooks would be a perfect representation of one of the genres of music that Nashville made famous with a concert for the people of the city.

Many lucky fans received tickets to the show, which happens tonight (10/24) throughout the past couple weeks and those who won’t be able to view the concert from the venue can still see it all through huge electronic screens set up in Nashville’s Riverfront Park downtown.
