Garth Brooks is the most commercially successful artist in country music history and a man who changed the Nashville sound as much as any who came before or after him. The singer made country cool on a national level with shows that were as alive and rowdy as rock concerts. An Oklahoma native, Brooks broke through with his self-titled debut in 1989 and dominated the genre for the next 10-plus years before stepping away to focus on being a father instead of an entertainer. He sold over 100 million albums and numerous Entertainer of the Year awards. He was also named as the artist of the decade for the ’90s. After a quiet few years with wife Trisha Yearwood, the star began his return to the spotlight with a tour in 2014.
Birthday: February 7, 1962
Top Songs: 'Friends in Low Places,' 'The Dance,' 'Rodeo'
Family: Wife Trisha Yearwood, daughters Taylor (1992), August (1994) and Allie (1996)
Now that Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood have announced their relocation from Oklahoma to Nashville, they're cutting ties with another home -- saying goodbye to a prime piece of real estate in Malibu.
If Garth Brooks fans in Chicago thought they were lucky that the legend chose their city to make his comeback, now they've won the lottery. Brooks has added not one, not two, but six more 2014 tour dates in the Windy City.
Garth Brooks is finally going digital in 2014, and now that he's releasing music on a new format, the country legend could be poised to surpass music icon Elvis Presley in sales, and maybe even the Beatles.
With Garth Brooks' announcement that he'll return to the stage for a world tour this Fall, other country artists are on high alert, acknowledging that it will be stiff competition. Keith Urban in particular knows Brooks' live shows are a force to be reckoned with.
Garth Brooks left it to a 31-year-old business owner in Georgia to decide what to do with the secret of where he'll begin his first tour in nearly two decades. On Monday afternoon (July 14), Andy Roberts shared his secret.
