LSU fans have made the song a huge hit. The song is played at LSU sporting events, tailgates, and after college bars close.

The Song Caused an Earthquake, Apple Watch Sound Warnings
People had expected that the show would go crazy before one person tweeted. “Is somebody at @lsu running the seismograph for when he plays Callin’ BR, or…”LSU’s official Twitter account replied with “Actually…yes.”Brooks also spoke about the volume he expected the concert to be. Telling WAFB, “This is going to be loud. This is going to be stupid, and it’s going to go all night long.”
After the concert was over, Chief Brand Officer of LSU sports Cody Worsham posted a screenshot of what the seismograph recorded during Brooks’ performance of “Callin’ Baton Rouge.” You can clearly see the small earthquake the country superstar’s performance caused.
Some fans reported that they received warnings from Apple Watches regarding dangerous noise levels in the vicinity. One person claimed that their Apple Watches recorded more than 95 decibels in the stadium.
Brooks calls for an earthquake ‘The Coolest Thing’
Brooks was a fan of what others have called the “Garthquake,” Say it, “Thanks for letting us be a small piece of thread in the family and the fabric of the LSU Tigers. You can get a Grammy, they can put you in the Hall of Fame, but getting a text from your buddies that are in the stadium here when they do ‘Callin’ Baton Rouge’ and you get to see it will make you cry and make you jump up. It’s the coolest thing.”
Even though the track is one of Brooks’ many hits, this concert marks his first performance in Baton Rouge in almost 25 years. It’s no surprise his Louisiana fans felt the need to get a little loud!
