Garth sat down with Ellen and talked to her about his work with Habitat for Humanity and President Jimmy Carter, Trisha Yearwood dressing up as him for Halloween, and how there is no difference between playing dive bars and huge stadiums on his tour, he has the best time playing both!
He also performed his classic hit "Callin' Baton Rouge' for the studio audience!

30 years ago, Garth Brooks was a brand new artist in Nashville, he just released his debut single "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" in March, and his debut album in April. Then on this day, June 24, 1989, he made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry! He sang his debut single and "If Tomorrow Never Comes", which would end up being his first #1 hit. Of course, that was just the start of what would become an amazing career for Garth! He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry a little more than a year later on October 6, 1990. Since then, he's inducted other country artists, including Carrie Underwood and Chris Janson.
On Garth's page on the Grand Ole Opry website he states, "I've said it for the record a thousand times. I'll state it again a thousand times. This is the pinnacle of what I do. Nothing has ever touched being a member of the Grand Ole Opry."
It may be Blake Shelton's birthday today (June 18), but we are getting the gifts courtesy of Garth Brooks! He has released a new single featuring the "God's Country" singer called "Dive Bar". Garth and Blake are set to perform the song together live at Garth's show in Boise, ID on July 19th, which Blake is set to open. The performance will be filmed so we'll be getting to see that soon! In
