Garth Brooks sang Friends In Low Places with Justin Timberlake, and it was great

We must begrudgingly admit it.

OK, WE’D BE THE first to say that the idea of Garth Brooks conjures up nothing but sadness and bad memories for us after the events of the summer. But the man can perform. We will give him that.

When Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Tour stopped in Nashville, he decided to pay tribute to the home of country music…with a little help from our old nemesis.

The result is a rendition of Friends In Low Places that is – dare we say it – more than a little bit joyous.

See how excited Justin Timberlake is. We could have had that, Garth. But you took it away from us.
