Garth Brooks Feels Very Lucky to Be Honored at the Kennedy Center

Garth Brooks has achieved a lot of honors throughout his career.

But this weekend, he received one that not many get to experience — he was one of the people celebrated at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, DC.

Garth, along with fellow honorees actress-dancer-choreographer Debbie Allen, folk singer and activist Joan Baez, violin virtuoso Midori, and beloved acting icon Dick Van Dyke, were at the Medallion Ceremony on Friday.

Talking about being among that group Garth says, “Just getting to be among this level of ‘character’ is good for me. I feel very lucky.”

He also joked “And for the first time in my life, I don’t mind being the weak link in the chain. I’m in the chain – that’s it. This is a cool thing. Just feel very, very lucky.”

Garth’s no stranger to the Kennedy Center Honors – he’s appeared many times as one of the people there to celebrate the honorees, but now being on the other side he said “An award is only as good as the names that are on it. That’s it. When you walk in that door…and you see the list of names…and then you sit in this group…and get to be a part of this…pretty cool.”

Garth also shared this, “To loosely quote Maya Angelou, I stand here as one but I stand here for the people who have carried me to this point.”

Fans can check out the event showcasing the honorees, hosted by prior recipient Gloria Estefan, June 6th on CBS TV.

Right now Garth, and Trisha Yearwood, are at country radio with their version of “Shallow”
