Garth Brooks has a ton of friends across the world and across musical genres. One of those special friends is Justin Timberlake, who the country music legend recognized while in Baltimore, Maryland yesterday — on Timberlake’s birthday.
During his performance, Brooks whipped out his phone and shot a fun video for the “Drink You Away” birthday boy with the help of a few thousand fans.
“I hate this guy because he always looks like he’s 18. I hate this guy ‘cause he’s got more talent in his pinky than my whole body. I hate this guy because my wife’s in love with him,” Brooks began. “But I love this kid. He’s a kid named Justin Timberlake.”
The crowd went crazy and broke into a jubilant “Happy Birthday” chorus while Brooks added in “Justin” to personalize the tune for his friend.
Happy 35th Birthday, Mr. Timberlake!
