Travis Kelce didn't disappoint at the latest Super Bowl victory parade. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end was clearly drunk beyond belief but he made the most of it by attempting to sing Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places" when he had the mic in his hands.

While Kelce didn't know the words, as evidenced by him having to take his phone out to check the lyrics, it still made for a memorable moment.

As it turns out, Brooks was watching all of this unfold and invited Kelce to redeem himself at the opening of his new bar in Nashville next month.

"“Big man, I’m just telling you this. I will be at grand opening if you’re there,” he continued. “I’ll send a plane if you want another shot at the title. If you want to come sing that, I’ll send a plane. You can come by yourself or bring your brother or your gang, whatever you want to do. The plane holds 11, just remember that. So, yes, I’ll be happy to send this invite out to you if you want to try a little ‘Friends in Low Places’ in Friends in Low Places.”"

Travis Kelce given a shot at redemption by Garth Brooks

Brooks is a legend in Kansas City and was one of the first artists to perform in the Sprint Center, which opened in downtown Kansas City in 2007. He put on five concerts and sold out all five of them. For many years, the Kansas City Royals played "Friends in Low Places" as their sing-along song in the seventh inning. It's a popular song in Kansas City so Kelce chose right. Hopefully this time, he can get the words right as well.
