Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Cover Bill Withers, James Taylor, Eagles During Acoustic Show: Watch

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood gave their fans everything they wanted on Tuesday night (July 14) during their Facebook Live acoustic concert special #GarthRequestLive2.

The laid-back, hour-plus set was made up entirely of fan requests including some of the country stars’ biggest hits, as well as warm stories about family and their career highlights.

The show opened with Brooks’ solo cover of Bill Withers’ inspirational anthem “Lean on Me,” which segued into the couple’s new duet “We Belong to Each Other” and one of Brooks’ avowed favorites, “The River,” which he prefaced by describing what it felt like to hear hero James Taylor sing the track at Garth’s 2012 Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Last week, the couple postponed a FB show — scheduled for July 7 — to quarantine after someone in their camp had possibly been exposed to COVID-19. Yearwood and fans who requested songs also wore fake mustaches to honor Garth’s friend and former team member Emmett Gilliam, who died eight years ago and was known for his epic mustache.

The loose, intimate set also featured covers of songs by Jim Croce (“Lover’s Cross”), several Bob Seger tracks (“Against the Wind,” “Turn The Page” and “Night Moves”), Bob Dylan (“To Make You Feel My Love”), Sonny & Cher’s (“I Got You Babe”) and Eagles (“Desperado”). Among the hits in the set were “Victim of the Game,” “Last Summer,” “Thunder Rolls,” “Baby Let’s Lady Down and Dance,” “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old),” “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” “Friends in Low Places” and the set-ending “When You Come Back to Me Again.”

The full show will be available on FB Live for 24 hours, until 7:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
