In a special episode of his Facebook Live video series, "Inside Studio G," Brooks on Thursday visited Mission Control Center at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he chatted via satellite video with astronaut Jack Fischer and his crew mate, astronaut Dr.
Peggy Whitson, who are on the International Space Station.
Fisher is a devoted Brooks fan who picked the country music superstar's hit "The River" as the first tune on his pre-launch playlist back in April when he embarked on his first trip into space.
Brooks also surprised Fischer with a visit from his wife, Elizabeth, and their daughter, Sariah, who joined him at the center, while Yearwood, naturally, asked the astronauts about the food.
In all honesty, I totally forgot that we were on Facebook Live because I was so involved talking [to them].” Brooks and Yearwood even posed for a selfie with the astronauts' onscreen images, which Garth posted on Twitter with the caption "Could this be the longest distance selfie EVER?" From Houston, Brooks and Yearwood are performing in concert at 7 tonight and 7:30 p.m.
