A 104-year-old woman in Huntsville, Ala., has just one wish before she goes on to glory. She wants to meet country mega-star Garth Brooks.
Mildred Loveday has been a huge fan of the G-man ever since he hit the country scene in 1989. She’s never seen him in concert, but owns every album he’s ever made.
Now her great-grandson, Brian Brooks (no relation), has made a Facebook page trying to arrange a meeting between Loveday and Garth.
In a recent interview with Huntsville TV station WHNT-19, Loveday says Brooks’ music keeps her company at night when she is “sick and lonely.”
She adds, “I play his music and it calms me and makes me feel good. He just sounds so pretty.”
Loveday says her favorite Garth Brooks song is “Friends in Low Places.” She also likes that Brooks sings about the Lord but isn’t afraid to “turn right around and say something ugly!”
Word of Loveday’s request has made it to Brooks’ camp. We will keep you posted if the superstar makes it to Alabama to meet his 104-year-old devotee.
