Garth Brooks Writes Song for AGT Finalist Michael Ketterer

Never underestimate the power of Simon Cowell. After America's Got Talent contestant, Michael Ketterer finished his performance towards the end of the season, Cowell sent a shout out to none other than country music's biggest star, Garth Brooks. Cowell asked Brooks to write a song for Ketterer to perform on the show.

Fast forward to the season finale, turns out Cowell got his wish. Brooks saw the request, heard Ketterer's story, and knew he had to write something. Thus became, "The Courage of Love". Brooks was able to create an incredible song for Ketterer.

While Ketterer did not win this season of America's Got Talent, being able to perform a song written for you by one of the greats is not a bad way to end a season. As if this was not enough, Brooks has invited Ketterer to join him on October 20 to perform at his sold-out Notre Dame Stadium concert.

“We’re going to suit you up with a band. We’re going to put you out in front of 85,000 of the sweetest people you’ve ever played for before, and they’re going to be pulling for you like no other. This is going to be good,” Brooks said during a Facebook live video.

For the full performance from last night's finale, watch the clip below.
