Whether you like his music or not, you can't deny that Garth Brooks is a nice guy.

The latest example of his generous nature has been highlighted this week in Fargo.

Radio presenter Siri Freeh, a co-host of Froggy's 99.9 Morning Splash on KVOX FM, was interviewing the country star over the phone last year as he was preparing to perform a 4-night run at the Fargodome, KVRR reports.

During the interview, Freeh, who was crowned Miss Minnesota in 2012, mentioned she was due to marry her then fiance Geoff Thaden that weekend and wouldn't be able to attend any of his shows.

Brooks replied: "For your wedding present ... you guys tell me after you’re married where you want to go. I’ll take care of the airfare, I’ll take care of the hotel. You can come see us in whatever city, ok? Because we're going to miss you at this one."

A year later, Brooks was true to his word, with Freeh telling listeners that she and her husband have booked tickets to see Brooks perform in Philadelphia at his expense.

"It goes to show how cool Garth really is. He doesn't just stay stuff, he follows through with it," she said on-air Monday.

"I never expected Garth to actually follow through, but that’s the type of guy he is! It’s no wonder his fans love him so much," she told KFGO.
