And needless to say, I’m surprised the place didn’t crash and burn.
In fact, it sounds like the place got pretty rowdy in Tiger Stadium with Garth played the song for a much smaller group of folks in the stadium for the sound check.
But then it came time for the real thing.
Packing out the stadium to full capacity with 102,321 rabid fans (and it ain’t a secret that LSU fans are as rowdy as they come), it’s easy to see that Louisiana natives were dying for the opportunity to watch Brooks play at their beloved stadium – and to hear him play their unofficial anthem.
And then it finally got to the point in the night where Brooks played the beloved song “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” which has become an anthem for LSU fans at football games, and used in all kinds of cringey recruiting videos for new head coach Brian Kelly.
