Wisconsin family spends day with Garth Brooks


DARLINGTON (WKOW) -- A Darlington mom had a Mother's Day weekend she'll never forget at a Garth Brooks concert in Omaha.

Karen Garrison won the Garth Brooks Mother's Day Surprise on Good Morning America Friday, and Garth himself flew her and her family on his private jet to his show that night in Nebraska.

But they didn't just get to see the show.

Karen's daughter Brook (named after the country super-star) tells WKOW the family had meals with Garth and played whiffle ball with him.

Brook sang with his wife and country star Trisha Yearwood.

Karen got to hold some of Garth's awards, including his Grammy, and Garth wanted to make sure he got pictures with Karen's son Garth, his namesake.

Brook says the family also had deep conversations with Garth about family, friends and life.

Brook says they got to know each other on a very personal level, and during the concert, Garth kept pointing at the family so the crew brought the Garrisons up on the "jumbotron" several times.

After the concert, Garth sent the family back home with free merchandise on his private jet.

Brook shared some of her personal pictures of the trip with WKOW. Click on the video to see them!
