A fan at a Garth Brook’s concert at Sleep Train Arena came out way ahead when she traded the country singer a cardboard cut-out guitar for his acoustic instrument.
Brooks, who is on a long run of shows at the Sacramento arena, can be seen in a YouTube video accepting a cardboard guitar for his concert instrument. The female fan’s mock-up has the words “hey Garth! want to trade?,”
The singer takes her up on the trade, gives her hand a squeeze and blows her a kiss.
Never miss a local story.

Brooks is entertaining more than 84,000-plus people who bought tickets to his five-day, six-show run, which kicked off Friday. It is the biggest musical event at the arena since Brooks played five shows, for about 79,000 fans, in August 1997.
The Sacramento shows mark the first California stop of Brooks' 7-month-old "The World Tour," his first large tour since he semi-retired in 2001 to raise his three daughters.
