Garth Brooks had an astonishing eleven shows in the Windy City and wrapped up his Chicago dates this past weekend. Before Garth bid adieu to the midwest for the time being, he decided to bring a very special person on stage to share in the memories along side him.
Garth’s daughter, eighteen-year-old Allie Colleen, is talented in her own right, and her proud father was not shy about sharing his offspring’s abilities with the crowd. “She does background vocals, acoustic guitar, singer-songwriter. From Owasso, Oklahoma, give it up for Miss Allie Colleen!” Garth yelled into his mic. Allie than proceeded to join the three usual background vocalists (the “Wall of Sound”) for the more than two-hour show, proving that talent and stamina run in the Brooks family.
Reports state that Garth showed no particular favoritism to his daughter, but there was no denying the pride he felt toward her during a verse of hit song “Friends in Low Places.” Clad in a red plaid shirt, skinny jeans, and tan booties with her hair pulled back, Allie’s appearance was true to who she is — a teenager; but she performed the entire set like a true professional.
This isn’t the only recent story of country music superstars sharing the spotlight with their talented daughters. Tim McGraw’s youngest, Audrey, performed at an acoustic VIP show during her father’s Sundown Heaven Town Tour. We always say that the country music industry is a family, and the stories surrounding the talent being bred from within the industry are indicative of that statement!
Who’s the next country music kid to make an onstage cameo? We can’t wait to find out!
