In honor of Veterans Day today (Nov. 11), Garth Brooks appeared on Good Morning America in New York to show his support for our military by performing “Belleau Wood,” a track from his 1997 album, Sevens.
Garth co-wrote the poignant track about soldiers in the midst of war who call a Christmas truce and join together on the battlefield to sing “Silent Night.” The song reflects a brief moment in time where peace and the human spirit—no matter their differences—triumphed over battle.
Surrounded by U.S military members in the studio, Garth performed a stirring rendition of the song, honoring all who fight for the freedoms we enjoy today.
Garth also went on to talk about his just-released Christmas album, Christmas Together, with wife Trisha Yearwood, who made a surprise appearance on the show. He also discussed his new boxed set, Garth Brooks: The Ultimate Collection, which is only available at Target and contains 126 songs, including his new album, Gunslinger.
