Country music hit-maker Garth Brooks guest starred on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for the first of two back-to-back appearances on Nov. 15.

The 2016 CMA entertainer of the year winner was on hand to play snippets of songs from his 10-disc box set, titled “The Ultimate Collection.” He also added light-hearted commentary to the conversations between host Jimmy Kimmel and stars Casey Affleck and Laurie Hernandez.

In addition to that, Garth performed his latest single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down And Dance,” from his upcoming album “Gunslinger,” which is out Nov. 25. Garth penned the song with writers Kent Blazy, Steve Dorff, Victoria Shaw and the late Kim Williams.

Taking the stage, the 54-year-old singer was on fire! He energized the audience by inviting them to clap along, as he crooned the lyrics to the upbeat tune. Garth had a guitar slung over his shoulder and was backed by an entire band, but that didn’t stop them from moving around on the floor. Needless to say, it looked like a blast!
