Over the weekend, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood played sold out shows at the University of Illinois. My good friend and fellow country music morning DJ Marty Brooks (94.1 The Wolf-Memphis) was there.
But the talk of the show wasn't all Garth and Trisha, it was also about WHO was in the audience enjoying the concert with the SOLD OUT crowd. Scroll down to see who Marty spotted in the crowd:

Fellow Okie and country music hitmaker Joe Diffie was in the audience enjoying the Garth Brooks concert. Joe and Garth both moved to Nashville around the same time and were part of the famed 'Class of '89' of young singers that took the country charts by storm.
My only question is, I wonder if Garth knew he was there. How cool would it have been if GB would have called Joe on-stage to sing a couple with him.
This picture just goes to prove EVERYBODY wants to get out and see a Garth Brooks concert, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year.
