Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood went down in history the other day while visiting NASA’s Mission Control in Houston. They had the honor of being the first celebrities ever to talk to an astronaut in space on Facebook live! 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.

He told Garth, quote, “That [song] was pretty much my anthem for almost the last three decades.  So thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such an inspiration to so many and making those words count.  Thank you, sir.”

Garth and Trisha also surprised Fischer by bringing out his wife and daughter to say hello . . . and then they performed a little bit of “The River”! Watch the full video below…
