Garth Brooks fans have ensured the country superstar's place in RodeoHouston history.

Officials at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo say Garth is now No. 1 for paid rodeo concert attendance.

In all, 75,577 Garth Brooks fans set him over the top to help him become the new record holder for Sunday's concert.

Between both of Garth's shows on Feb. 27 and March 18, more than 150,000 flocked to NRG Stadium to see the artist's triumphant return to the rodeo.

Garth says if he's healthy enough, "God willing," he will be back for RodeoHouston's 100th Anniversary.
