Garth Brooks had previously said he’d be emotional during his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, but tears started flowing before he even entered the building for Sunday’s Induction Ceremony. Some of Garth’s personal heroes – George Strait, Bob Seger and James Taylor– were on hand for the ceremony.
“I moved to this town for one reason and that was to get ‘Much Too Young to Feel This Damn Old’ cut by George Strait,” Garth told The Washington Post before the ceremony. “That’s what George is singing tonight. It’s gonna be so cool. I’m a fan. So I get to be a fan tonight.”
