Garth Brooks Is Giving Away Honeymoons Like They’re Chocolates [Watch]
Garth Brooks must have wanted to be like Oprah on Saturday night (July 15) in Oklahoma City: "You get a honeymoon, and you get a honeymoon and you get a honeymoon!"
Okay, in reality he gave away just a single honeymoon to a newly-engaged couple, but you get the sense that he had more to share had someone raised a hand during his set at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma. Drew and Chelsea were the lucky pair. The groom-to-be got down on bended knee from his seat in one of the arena's bowl levels and somehow the "Unanswered Prayers" singer spotted them.

After stopping the show, Brooks learned that "Drew" had been planning this moment for several months and just assumed Brooks would play "Unanswered Prayers."
"Where do you want to go on your honeymoon?" he asks the bride-to-be. She doesn't know, so ... "Well, I tell you what, if you pick Hawaii, Miss Yearwood and I will pay for it." He and Yearwood renewed their vows in Hawaii last year.
The Oklahoman confirmed that Brooks will indeed cover the couple's costs, and later during the show Yearwood said she was cool with it, but joked that no other couples could get engaged.
Prior to a weekend-long set of shows in Oklahoma City, Brooks shared that his North American leg of the world tour will wrap in December, meaning there are just a few select dates left for fans in the United States. His plans in 2018 remain unclear, but he has hinted a European leg of the tour will follow. Musically he released the Gunslinger album in November 2016, which includes his current single "Ask Me How I Know."
Brooks and Yearwood will begin a weekend-long run of shows in Los Angeles this weekend.
