Legendary country music artist Garth Brooks received high honors at last Wednesday night’s Billboard Music Awards, earning the 2020 Icon Award.
“If I had to think of one person or one entity, it would be God Almighty, for through Him all things are possible,” Brooks said.
Fellow music entertainer Cher introduced Brooks and presented him with the award.
“Since his debut album, it seems Garth Brooks has stood at the very top of the music world,” Cher began in her tribute to the iconic country performer. “Breaking down barriers, topping the charts and redefining the very nature of country music, both in the studio and on stage.”
Brooks also thanked his wife, Trisha Yearwood, and his three daughters.
“I will love you for all my time on this planet,” Brooks said. “Country Radio, you gave me this! To all those people who fill those stands, thank you! Thank you for my life!”
