Garth Brooks Is Still Wearing His Cheyenne Frontier Days Buckle 22 Years Later
July 22, 1996, was one of the most exciting nights in the history of Cheyenne Frontier Days. Nearly 22 years later, Garth Brooks still remembers the epic evening every time he puts on his pants.
"The last time I played there was with Chris LeDoux on the 100th anniversary. That's the buckle I've worn for 20 years. If you see album covers, that's Cheyenne Frontier Days," Brooks recalled earlier this year.
The concert featured many of Garth's greatest hits, including the crowd favorite "Beaches of Cheyenne". For many fans, the highlight of the show came when LeDoux joined Brooks on stage for a duet of "Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy".
The '96 performance was Garth's fourth CFD show. Brooks first came to Cheyenne in 1991 and returned in '93 for a two-night stand.
