Bob Seger Pays Tribute To Garth Brooks

Country star Garth Brooks was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame last night at the Ford Theater in Nashville along with Connie Smith and Hargus “Pig” Robbins.

Among those paying tribute to Brooks was Detroit’s own Bob Seger and singer James Taylor.  Garth’s wife, Trisha Yearwood, personally called the pair back in April to have them perform at the private, invitation only ceremony.  Both were big influences on the country star early in his career.  Seger played the Garth Brooks song “That Summer” and talked about the singer’s passion:

James Taylor  performed “The River” with Trisha on backing vocals and  says he’s honored to call Garth Brooks a fan:

Guests at the event were other Hall of Fame members, their families, board members and trustees.  Unfortunately the event was not televised.
