Garth Brooks Calls Vera Man to the Stage

Garth Brooks Calls Vera Man to the Stage

Identified by Oklahoma's WFAA-TV as Drew Bargsley and Chelsea Townsend, the couple seemed more than happy to accept after interrupting the concert and distracting Brooks.

"Drew, did you have this planned out or something?"

He then offered to pay for their honeymoon if they decide to go to Hawaii.

That's when Brooks proposed a present for the couple: he'd pay for their romantic getaway in full if they chose Hawaii as their spot. He asked the bride-to-be where she wanted to go for a honeymoon.




The crowd began to cheer loudly for the proposal and Brooks' generous honeymoon offer.

Trisha Yearwood, Brooks' wife, had a set during the concert and acknowledged the couple once again.

Later, he said that he had spoken to Yearwood and she had agreed to pony up - but joked "Nobody else can get engaged tonight". Bargsley posted the gleeful news to his Facebook wall on Saturday.

The country singer noticed the proposal, stopped mid-verse during the song "Unanswered prayers", and congratulated the couple before asking them a question.
