There is something so magical about hearing a superstar artist perform one of their biggest hit songs with just a guitar. With no production bells and whistles, it’s easier to hear the genuine talent and raw emotion that goes into some songs, like Garth Brooks’ “The Dance.”

Of course, when he gave an acoustic performance of that hit song during an appearance on “Good Morning America,” there was one added element—the studio audience.

Garth stood in the middle of the studio with those lucky folks surrounding him, and in a video shared by “GMA” you can see that slowly more and more of them start to sing along. And not quite as slowly, you see a broad smile spread across Garth’s face as he hears their voices joining in.

Eventually, the majority of the crowd is singing along, and their voices gently bleed into Garth’s microphone, giving the performance a beautiful, ethereal sound. The country star acknowledges their offering with a big smile, a nod and a “that’s sweet.”

It sure is.

He ends the song with his hands over his heart, thanking his impromptu backup singers.

“The Dance” is the perfect anthem of gratitude for this Thanksgiving holiday.
