One very special Wisconsin mom got the surprise of her life when the man who she named her children after showed up on her front porch to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day.
Karen Garrison is a well-known fan of Garth Brooks, even naming her son Garth and her daughter Brook after the man whose music has touched her life so dearly. Knowing that their mother’s dream would be to meet the iconic singer, Garth and Brook Garrison nominated her to win a surprise visit from Garth Brooks, as well as an in-person, private concert.
The Garrison children explained how special their mom is to them with a few heartfelt statements.
She was always my backbone. She was always my best friend. She was always there to support me. My mom gave me the confidence to not let people bring you down, that’s who she is.
Nobody cheered louder. You could always hear her.
And on the subject of being a namesake to the legendary country singer, Garth Garrison stated:
I love my name. I love it. I love that my mom and dad thought of that name. It’s unique. I wouldn’t want any other name. Thank you, Garth Brooks.
This was an ultimate thank you from us kids, but also the people that you’ve also become a second mother to. You take care of everyone, and it’s a big thank you from us.
