Well this is pretty darn nifty.
Imagine being up in space, floating around while working from the International Space Station when suddenly you get a call from two of the biggest country stars on the planet.
That’s exactly what happened to NASA Astronaut Randy “Komrade” Bresnik on Dec. 6 when he got a call from Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
Tim shared this neat bit of news on his social media pages, along with a photo of Randy so we could all see the face behind the name.
“Incredible chatting with NASA Astronaut Randy ‘Komrade’ Bresnik and his lovely wife today as he was orbiting our planet on the International Space Station,” Tim wrote. “We wish you a safe return to your family next week!”
Tim also included the hashtag “Stay Humble and Kind.”
Isn’t this just the coolest?
Turns out, this isn’t the first time Tim’s music has gone out of this world.
Back in 2015 when his single “Top of the World” debuted, Tim got the chance to speak to NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who was also on the International Space Station at the time.
This is just the coolest thing for Tim and Faith to do. They’re always thinking of others and putting their fans first — wherever they happen to be.
Another country power couple, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, visited NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston in June, where they spoke with two astronauts who were then in orbit aboard the International Space Station. Garth even grabbed a guitar and serenaded them with an acoustic performance of “The River.”
Between then, Faith and Tim snagged a handful of Rare Country Award nominations. Faith is one of this year’s top nominees, with nods for Female Artist of the Year, and nominations with Tim for Duet, Story and Tour of the Year. Garth and Trisha, meanwhile, are also up for Tour of the Year, and Garth has a second nomination in the Fan Moment of the Year category.
