Garth Brooks’ impact reaches to infinity and beyond.

The country legend became the first celebrity to go live on Facebook from NASA’s Mission Control Center at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and fans watched worldwide as Garth spoke to an astronaut live in space.

One of Garth’s biggest fans, astronaut Jack Fischer told the “Ask My How I Know” singer how much of an impact his music has had on him.

“It was so cool,” Garth told People afterwards. “When you get to talk to two people in their field, it’s cool to get to be in their life. And it’s cool to get that pinch of reality where your music is in their life. I never can digest that, ever. It’s just so sweet.”

Before he launched his first space flight in April, Fischer added Garth’s “The River” to his pre-launch playlist. 

As for whether Garth would ever consider an invitation to join him in space, he says “not unless they want a concert up there” because the singer calls himself “too much of a wuss.”

He continues the Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood throughout the year.
