Short bio: 

Garth Brooks is a country pop singer-songwriter. His eponymous first album was released in 1989 and peaked at number 2 in the US country album chart while climbing to number 13 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Brooks' integration of rock elements into his recordings and live performances earned him immense popularity. This progressive approach allowed him to dominate the country single and album charts while crossing over into the mainstream pop arena.

Brooks broke records for both sales and concert attendance throughout the 1990s. Troubled by conflicts between career and family, Brooks officially retired from recording and performing from 2001 until 2009. During this time, he sold millions of albums through an exclusive distribution deal with Walmart and sporadically released new singles. In 2005, Brooks started a partial comeback, and has since given several performances and released two compilation albums.

On October 15, 2009, Garth Brooks announced the end of his retirement. In December 2009, he began a five-year concert deal with the Encore Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Following the conclusion of his residency in Las Vegas, Brooks announced his signing with Sony Music Nashville in July 2014. In September 2014, he began his comeback world tour. His most recent album, Man Against Machine, was released on November 11, 2014 via his online music store GhostTunes.

Brooks was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on October 21, 2012.

My husband, sister and I have volunteered at the lighting of the National Christmas Tree in DC for the last 4 years to help the National Park Service. We always work the entrance checking credentials for the dress rehearsal. In 4 years, you and Trisha have been the ONLY performers to acknowledge us. You both told us “Good night!” None of the performers even look our way. Thank you for acknowledging us and noticing that volunteers are donating their time to help.

I grew up listening to you, my grandparents adored you, My Grams called you her boyfriend!!! My Gramps laughed, and loved singing with her. She passed two years ago, my grandpa is still going strong at 77! My mom, and grandpa are in Florida, I will be going to Detroit... tomorrow after work, i get out at 2pm.. hoping I can get a ticket, I hope to get someone to come with me. Im a Nursing student, serve at a diner on the side....i can't miss your concert.... but gosh I pray to find a ticket less than 90$. You are an inspiration to me. If I don't see you, I wish you the best of luck and enjoy Michigan!! Yee haaaawww

I’m very disappointed that Garth is endorsing Bernie Sanders for president in 2020. Saw him wearing a Sanders 20 jersey. Can’t believe that an American country singer would endorse a socialist...

Garth was performing in Detroit and wearing the jersey of LEGENDARY Detroit Lions RB Barry Sanders. It had nothing to do with the election!

Howdy from Phoenix Arizona Class of 77!
Always surprised how similar our taste is in music. Skinny Black kid in Tucson listening to Marshal Tucker, Charlie Daniels, Lynrd Skynrd, the Police, but also Etta James, Dinah Washington, Diana Ross.
Stevland Morris (Stevie Wonder) Best concerts I ever sneaked into: Elton John (Honky Cat tour). Dan Fogelberg (Phoenix Tour) Willie Nelson at the stadium, Cat Stevens (Majikat tour) and of course Lynda Ronstadt and Stevie Nix (hometown girls), and James Taylor. You are amazing, you do good work. Say Hi to the Misses. New favorite song "You Wreck Me" LOL

Hey Garth,
I'm a huge fan of yours. I've always wanted to meet you and to see you in concert but funds are low at the moment. I listen to standing outside the fire all the time because of the message behind it. It's brought me out of tough spots in my life a lot. You are a true inspiration. You are definitely my favorite singer-songwriter of all time. It would be a great honor to just sit down and talk to you. I love in South Carolina. And if you're ever in the town of Summerville look me up on Facebook.

Hey Garth,
You are definitely my favorite singer-songwriter of all time. My favorite song is standing outside the fire because of the message behind it. That song has gotten me thru some hard times. I've always wanted to meet you and to see you in concert but due to funds I can't. I love in South Carolina. My dream is to meet you and Trisha Yearwood. If you can make that happen my life would be complete.

This song has taken on a different meaning for me. My wife of nearly 49 years has dementia and now resides in an assisted living facility. With the CoronaVirus, I can no longer get in to visit her with her face to face. She no longer knows my name. The last few times we were able to see each other and hug one another, the only sentence she can say thankfully is "I love you." I am thankful that the love "I gave her every day is going to be enough to stay" with me forever. Thanks, Garth, for that truly special song.
