Garth Brooks Celebrates Birthday With Pittsburgh Sports Legends, Massive Sing-a-Long [WATCH]
There probably isn't much that gets country superstar Garth Brooks starstruck, but his birthday celebration on Feb. 7 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa., came pretty close. The singer got to celebrate with Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, not to mention some of the city's current players and sports legends, and it was enough to have the singer declare his 53rd birthday one to remember.
Brooks was in Pittsburgh to play six shows at the arena, which he admits was the perfect location to celebrate his birthday.
"I couldn't have picked a better city to spend my birthday in," he tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Having a birthday on the road is rough, 'cause you've got 30 guys looking to get even for what you did to them on their birthday."
But, besides getting a pie shoved into his face as he emerged from his dressing room with wife Trisha Yearwood, Brooks just had a lot of fun, all the while representing the city in black and gold.
"Since I've been a baby, I've been a Black and Gold fan," he says. "I've been a Pittsburgh fan forever."
Brooks shared a video on Facebook -- which you can see above -- showing some highlights from the festivities: a massive Pittsburgh-themed birthday cake, on-stage shenanigans and an arena-wide sing-a-long to 'Friends in Low Place.'
