The country superstars dazzled the crowd at the event.

Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire were among the fans and friends who made Garth Brooks' Monday night (24Oct16) show in Nashville, Tennessee one to remember.

The ladies joined Jason Aldean, Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood to mark the country superstar's landmark seven diamond album feat, performing tracks from each of the releases that helped Garth break sales records last month (Sep16).

Brooks knew McEntire would be joining him onstage and guessed Yearwood would be part of the show, but he seemed taken aback when Aldean and Clarkson were introduced as special guests.

Clarkson sang Long Neck Bottle and We Shall Be Free, while Aldean performed Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old). Trisha belted out Walkaway Joe and Reba tackled Not Counting You.

Garth and his wife also teamed up to perform their hit In Another's Eyes from his Sevens album.

Brooks has become the first artist to earn seven career Diamond Awards, according to the Recording Industry Association of America's Gold & Platinum Program.

RIAA officials hand out Diamond Awards to artists whose releases have each hit the 10 million sales mark.

Brooks has managed this feat seven times, and he now has one more album certified diamond than the Beatles.

The singer/songwriter's diamond albums include The Ultimate Hits, The Hits, No Fences, and Sevens.
