So in 2014 when Garth Brooks announced a new album, a first in 13 years, his fans were ecstatic. During his promotional tour for his new album, Man Against Machine, Garth went on Ellen DeGeneres’ hit show, “The Ellen Show”.
The pair talked about his life over the past decade and what it was like to be, well, a superstar. After the two talked Garth did a live performance of the classic hit “Aint Goin’ Down (Til’ The Sun Comes Up)”.
The audience, including Ellen herself, were happy with his performance, but Garth had another song up his sleeve. He started to play his new single “Mom” in an emotional, acoustic performance.
The single “Mom” is about a conversation between God and an unborn baby. The unborn baby is nervous about being sent from heaven to earth, but God convinces the baby to go down. “And when God describes what a mom is… it kills me,” Garth says.
Garth Brooks himself lost his mother, Colleen Carroll Brooks in 1999 after a long battle with cancer.
Once Garth got into the song, he started to so emotional that even Ellen struggled to fight back the tears. It’s a truly great and moving performance. Garth is known for his amazing performances live and this one is no exception!
