Garth Brooks fans in Baton Rouge gave new meaning to the phrase "rock the house" over the weekend.

The country crooner was headlining LSU's Tiger Stadium on Saturday night when he treated the crowd to an electric performance of "Callin' Baton Rouge."

"I have to ask you, Baton Rouge? Is it time?" Brooks asked the more than 100,000 fans as a fiddler began to play. The sold-out stadium responded with a roar.

While the crowded jumped, screamed, and sang along to the unofficial anthem of Death Valley, a seismograph in nearby Nicholson Hall recorded a small earthquake, LSU confirmed.

According to WBRZ, it was the second time in 33 years that jumping and cheering in the stadium registered as a small earthquake. The last time was a football game on October 8, 1988, when LSU narrowly defeated Auburn in the final two minutes of play

As the song ended, fans began to cheer, "L-S-U! L-S-U!"

"That was even better than I could have ever dreamed it could be," Brooks said.
