Hayes also revealed details about his initial interaction with the superstar.
"I was asking members of my team for some details about a certain event, and they said, 'Well, why don't you just call Garth?'" he recalled. "I was like, 'That's not gonna happen.' And sure enough, I texted this random number and I was very careful about how I said it - I was like, 'I don't want to intrude on your privacy, or whatever,' and he was like, 'Well, this is Garth. Is this the guy you meant to talk to?' He was so cool! He was so funny, he was totally messing with me the whole time."
It was Brooks who had the idea to team with Hayes on his iconic song.
"It was one of those questions that you get from a legend, where it's like 'Hey, do you know this song called 'The Dance?' and you're just like, 'Um, yes!'"
