Last night Garth Brooks treated a sold-out crowd at the Century Link Center in Bossier City, LA to a special performance by his friend, Lee Brice.
Lee played a 25-minute acoustic set before Garth went on. Garth invited Lee up toward the end of his set to play, "More Than A Memory," the song Garth made a Number One the week it released to radio.
"More Than A Memory" was also Lee's first Number One as a songwriter.
"It was one of my favorite nights on a stage -- ever." said Lee.
Garth introduced Lee by saying, "I remember getting a call from a retailer during my time with my babies they want to know if we can go in the vault and do anything. I said, 'Well, there is one song written by this new kid in Nashville.' So, Lee Brice had this song called 'More Than A Memory' that he had written. And there's a thing in Nashville -- this has never happened to you, it happens to me all the time -- but you'll hear the demo of the song and you realize you'll never be able to sing it that good. So I'm gonna have my stab at it and then I'm gonna let the master take over."
Garth started the song and passed it to Lee -- the crowd went wild and sang along to every word.
