1. If He Wasn't a Successful Musician, He Could've Been a Successful Criminal

During an interview with Larry King, Garth Brooks was asked what he'd be doing if Nashville wasn't receptive to his style. The superstar admitted he lives on the dark side, and the line between famous and infamous is very thin. Fans see that dark side in his music. "I like that world. I like -- you know, there's a great line in 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas' when he says, 'I'm in a bad mood and I'd like to enjoy it for a little while,' you know? That's what you do with music. You get in that dark thing and you write that dark side." King suggested crime as a surprising profession for the singer, who didn't go as far as to object.
