We know a lot of Outsiders have a place in their hearts for country music. Garth Brooks put on a show for fans at Cheyenne Frontier Days.
Brooks is back out on the road touring these days and, on Friday night, he had a lot of fans show up for his concert. He packed them in at the yearly event in Cheyenne, Wyo.
Garth Brooks even decided to share some of those pictures from that concert with his fans around the world thanks to Twitter.
As you can see in one picture, Brooks comes to the edge of the stage and greets one of his young fans. That’s nothing new for him as he connects with audiences wherever he performs.
