So many people tried to watch Garth Brooks’ recent Facebook Live video that they ended up crashing the entire site!

Garth and his equally talented wife, Trisha Yearwood, both at home during the quarantine with their kids, decided to gave their fans a very special treat: a free concert taped live from their home studio.

The superstar country couple kept it casual in their sweats, but their duets were moving and emotional. Trisha sang “Amazing Grace.” Garth told fans, “We’re all in this together.”

More than 5 million viewers watched at home together, but the site became so overloaded that it kept crashing for many.

Many others got kicked off the site completely due to capacity issues.

Then came the song requests from all the fans sitting at their computers — about 50,000 song requests! They included their own original songs, plus some unexpected new ones — like “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and an Ed Sheeran hit.

Garth admitted he’s got a case of cabin fever (like so many others!) and that his and Trisha’s free mini concert was just what he needed to feel better.

And in true Garth form, he even shed some tears upon hearing his wife’s beautiful voice.

Please enjoy a quick excerpt from Garth and Trisha’s at-home performance, and SHARE it with your friends on Facebook!
