Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood had the honor of visiting NASA's Mission Control Center in Houston yesterday. They were the first celebrities to go live on Facebook while speaking to an astronaut in orbit.
It was actually two astronauts, Dr. Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer, who's a huge Garth fan. "The River" was the first song on his pre-launch playlist back in April.
Garth and Trisha even performed a little bit of that song.
Here’s video… it’s long, but you can forward to some highlights…… astronaut Fischer talking about being a Garth fan at 3:37 and Garth and Trisha sing at 11:17.
