Chase Rice Fulfills Childhood Dream Opening for Garth Brooks {PICS}

Chase Rice’s first concert was a Garth Brooks show back when he was just 11 years old.

So it was a first circle moment when Garth asked him to open up at his Detroit show on Saturday.

Chase shared a touching moment holding his baby nephew before the show.

“It’s hard to comprehend, to be honest,” Rice told Billboard on his tour bus before the show. “I’m just trying to take it all in and enjoy the night.”

Chase had other family members on hand as well, including his niece and two nephews and they had a sign that read “First Show: Garth and Uncle Chase.”
