Garth Brooks

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.
