Garth Brooks got emotional listening to Kelly Clarkson perform his song “The Dance” at the 43rd annual Kennedy Center Honors. “Could have missed the pain but I would’ve had to miss the dance,” Clarkson sings in the clip before the camera pans to Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood. In the clips, he’s clearly holding back tears.

This song, in particular, is a meaningful one for Clarkson. When Brooks visited her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, she spoke about how that song helped her through her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

“So I’m going through a divorce and there’s been like a lot of books and people always give you stuff to help, especially when you have kids and stuff,” Clarkson says at the time. “And there’s so much shame and guilt.”

“I couldn’t quite nail down the feeling… Like you don’t want to crap on it, like, you don’t want to say that [relationship] doesn’t count or matter, but you don’t know what to put in it because it didn’t work out like you wanted. So, anyway, I kid you not, I was listening to my playlist and ‘The Dance’ came on. And I was like, ‘No, that’s the thing. That’s it.’”
