We had an incredible three minutes with Garth Brooks after his press conference on Thursday, just before the first of his five Lubbock shows. We had an opportunity to talk about some of the powerful issues he is passionate about.

Since we've already spent time with Brooks on the phone and covered a lot of ground in recent interviews (listen to them all below), it felt important to go a little deeper. The country legend opened up with incredible candor and insight.

He has focused on the theme 'love one another' on Inside Studio G, which is his Monday night Facebook Live conversation with fans. Brooks shared a powerful idea about reading The Bible. He also shared insight about his blended family and the way he'd been raised by his parents.

"They taught us all that no matter what your last name is, you're family...to love. And our family was about as different from each other as we possibly could be," Brooks said.

He also talked about how the song "We Shall Be Free" is possibly more relevant now than it was 25 years ago. Finally, he mentioned how catastrophe unites the U.S. every time, but asked: "Can we do that without the catastrophe?"

A ton of insight and wisdom packed into a few valuable minutes. Don't miss watching both these videos, as well as the press conference with both he and Trisha Yearwood, and see links below for the phone calls we had with Garth Brooks.

It has been an honor and a privilege sharing this time with Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood and helping Lubbock welcome them for their powerhouse, once-in-a-lifetime five-show tour stop.
