Jessica Lavasseur got quite the surprise outside of Garth Brooks' old recording studio.

While on a golf cart tour of Nashville with her fiance, Jessica was able to locate the famous Nashville recording studio where Garth Brooks recorded some of his biggest hits. I've been on similar "Homes of the Stars" type tours and I can tell you that when it comes to the "stars" there are usually none to be found.


But that wasn't the case here. Jessica explains what happened when she decided to take in all that Nashville had to offer via a golf cart tour.

As we’re riding by all these houses that so many country stars have recorded in, we come up to this house that’s under construction. It was my first time in Nashville and absolutely had to see that house! Our tour guide Ron (Joy Rides of Nashville) waved to a man on the porch as we asked him if we could go take pictures in front of the house and door and he said “you can’t try, ask him!”. Being so focused on the house that as we approached the door he met us half way and we asked if we could possibly go take a picture. He said we couldn’t but he would take our picture for us. He then grabbed my phone and went to take a picture of us and that’s when my fiancée said “hey man you look like Garth Brooks! People ever tell you that!?” And he responded with “yea. I am!” And at that moment it allll sunk in and we started freaking out! We had just met the king of country!!! Mind blown!!!

Her fiance Naomi Marcantel is from Eunice, and she was just as surprised as Jessica when they realized they were face to face with the country superstar.

He is so down to earth. We didn’t even know who he was at first. Pretty sure we said man you look like Garth brooks and he responded with i am lol

The Nashville studio space was recently purchased and renovated by Garth who has been working on new music and a new tour. Once they did realize they were in the presence of country music royalty, they were able to capture the special moment.


Acadiana got to witness his kindness firsthand during a recent run of shows over two weekends at the CAJUNDOME. As we've seen in similar encounters with Garth during that visit, he was super down to earth and excited to take photos with the couple.

He even kept his original promise and took photos OF the couple. Jessica could barely contain herself.


It wasn't Baton Rouge, but I guess New Iberia is close enough.
