In a stunning display of camaraderie and celebration, Kansas City Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce has been personally invited by country music legend Garth Brooks to perform at the grand opening of Brooks' latest venture, the 'Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk', in Nashville.

The invitation, extended during Brooks' talkshoplive episode of 'Inside Studio G' on February 20, comes after Kelce's impromptu and spirited rendition of Brooks' iconic hit 'Friends in Low Places' at the Chiefs' Super Bowl victory parade in Kansas City on February 14.

Garth Brooks, visibly impressed by Kelce's enthusiastic performance, remarked during the show, "Did you guys see Travis Kelce's version of ‘Friends in Low Places?' I loved it, I thought it was fantastic." He added, "It blew me away...I never expected that." In a generous gesture, Brooks offered to fly Kelce out for the event, stating, "Big man, I'm just telling you this.

I will be at the grand opening if you're there...The plane holds 11, so bring your brother or your gang, whatever you want to do."

Early Performance Tease

Brooks, however, humorously hinted at an early performance for Kelce, possibly to ensure a more sober rendition of the song.

This light-hearted exchange highlights the mutual admiration between the two stars from different realms of the American entertainment landscape. The 'Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk' promises to be a major attraction in Nashville.

Having had a soft launch with two of its four floors open several days a week, the grand opening on March 7 will unveil all four floors of the 54,715 square-foot space. Each level offers a unique experience: the first floor features two bars and a dance floor, the second has additional bars with a mezzanine overlooking the stage, the third floor is reserved for private events and includes a patio, while the rooftop fourth floor boasts two full bars.

The event takes on a deeper significance as it follows a tragic incident during the Chiefs' victory parade, where a shooting occurred, resulting in one fatality and at least 25 injuries. In response to this tragedy, Kelce, demonstrating his commitment to the community, made a generous donation of $100,000 to two siblings who were injured in the shooting.

This act of kindness and his upcoming performance at Brooks' bar opening not only highlight Kelce's multifaceted personality but also his deep connection to his fans and community.
