Last night, Mr. R. and I found ourselves at one of our most favorite local Indie places for dinner, The Sunset Grill in Northwood. That date night is a post for another time, but for now I have to say that they played the best music all night. I loved every song that came on and the playlist was eclectic, from James Taylor to the Police to Alan Jackson. But one of my favorite musical moments from last night was Two Pina Coladas by Garth Brooks and it was my intention to post that for tonight’s serenade.
However… I’d forgotten how hard it is to locate actual Garth Brooks songs on Youtube. They have lots of covers, but I wanted to real deal so I began to dig. Which is good for us because I unearthed this gem from December 2014. Garth made an appearance at a Justin Timberlake concert in Nashville and the two collaborated on that GB classic, Friends in Low Places. They even include the ‘mysterious third verse’ which makes for a solid gold serenade. My face still hurts from smiling. I hope you love it as much as I do.
Happy Saturday night!
