Country superstar Garth Brooks makes surprise visit to Oklahoma City Children’s Hospital

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The much-anticipated return of Oklahoma's own Garth Brooks is happening this weekend!

The country music superstar will hold four concerts in Oklahoma City starting Friday night.

It has been 20 years since the singer performed in Oklahoma City and he said he's glad to be back.

"And that's the one message that Oklahoma sends better than any place on the planet, is you have friends, you have family," said Brooks. "The fact this is home, you take a lot of pride in it and you want this one to be the biggest one and best one of all the zones."

Before the big show, he wanted to visit with some of his bravest and youngest fans.

Brooks toured the Oklahoma City Children's Hospital Child Life Zone Friday afternoon. His foundation helped create it back in 2010 and it's one that's close to his heart.

"My road was easy. I can't imagine fighting for your life and still dreaming big at the same time, that's what makes me proud," Brooks said.

It is a place where the small patients can have fun and forget about their problems and ailments.

He took pictures, shared stories, made the kids laugh and signed autographs.

If you are attending one of his shows, you are advised to arrive at least two hours early.
