Garth Brooks ‘Friends In Low Places’ Number One Song 25 years Ago
Back in August of 1990 Garth Brooks was on top of the world and just released his second album "No Fences". The CD spawned four major hits which all of them went all the way to number one in the country charts and all have become timeless classics now.
One of those hits was "Friends In Low Places" which is turns 25 years old this year. I can't believe that the song is 25 years old. When Garth released 'Friends In Low Places' it took the song only eight weeks to make it to the number one spot on the charts and it stayed there for four weeks straight.
The "No Fences" album produced the number one hits "Unanswered Prayers", "Two of a Kind, Workin' on a Full House", "The Thunder Rolls", and "Friends In Low Places".
I remember the first time I heard about Garth Brooks. I was on my senior trip in South Padre Island sitting on the tailgate of my truck when a buddy I was on the trip with said "Hey I got this CD from this new guy named Garth Brooks. I think you will like it!"
We sat there that night and listened to the CD from the first song to the last one. It was Garth Brooks first CD called "Garth Brooks" which had the songs "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old), "If Tomorrow Never Comes, "Not Counting You, "The Dance". It was a great record!
Then once I was back home and in college is when "Friends In Low Places" was released and I remember going out with my friends to Miss Kittie's night club and when that song played we along with everyone else in the bar sang it at the top of our lungs!
What great memories! Well I just wanted to share with you Gator country my memories of this timeless Garth classic.
