A Brooks/Connick Affair

It’s not so surprising that after having somewhat worked together in the movie Hope Floats that Garth Brooks and actor/fellow music-maker Harry Connick Jr. would again collaborate on a music-only basis. Reportedly, Brooks has asked Connick to help out with the big-band arrangements for his upcoming Christmas album and television special. Brooks explained that Connick was “a good dude.” In Hope Floats, starring Connick and Sandra Bullock, it was one of Brooks’ songs — “To Make You Feel My Love” — heard playing in the background and on the film’s soundtrack.
