Garth Brooks Background
Troyal Garth Brooks was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Clubs and bars served as his springboard for his music career while he was studying at Oklahoma State University. In 1987,
Brooks made a second go at settling in Nashville. His initial shot at the big time turned out to be a disappointment. Eventually,
Brooks inked a deal with Capitol Records. "The Dance" and "If Tomorrow Never Comes" were his early hits. Garth Brook's debut
eponymous album dropped in 1989. The album fared pretty well when it came to sales but no one could have ever known just how
successful Brooks would become down the road. His sophomore album, No Fences (1990), sold like hotcakes. Over 700,000 copies
were unloaded in just over a week. Ropin' the Wind, Brooks' third effort arrived in 1991 and harnessed a record-shattering
and astounding 4 million orders prior to hitting the shelves. Brooks once again surprised critics and fans, producing the
first country album to ever score a No. 1 spot on the pop charts. The momentum continued with 1998's Garth Brooks Double Live.
The album sold more than one million copies just within its initial week of release, crushing the preceding record. Brooks
also enjoyed the same kind of success with his live shows. A Central Park concert hosted in New York City on August 7, 1997,
attracted approximately 250,000 to one million people! In early 2000, Brooks claimed three American Music Awards for the Double
Live album of 1998. In 2000, Brooks revealed that he wanted to dedicate some time to his wife and three children. Before he
took a hiatus, he released Scarecrow in 2001, which rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Unfortunately, Brooks ended
up getting a divorce in the fall of 2000. Around the same time, he officially retired from the music industry. Nearly a decade
later, Brooks made a comeback, playing regular gigs at the Wynn Las Vegas. The performances were very intimate in nature,
shining a spotlight only on Brooks and his guitar. The three-year stint was a hit with audiences, validated by the string
of sold-out shows. For his finale performance in the fall of 2013, Brooks collaborated with CBS to broadcast the event live.
About 9.33 million viewers were glued to their TVs, and the event earned the No. 1 slot in ratings. Brooks came back to the
Wynn in early 2013 - this time with his band. Once again playing to sold-out audiences, the show was named Garth Brooks: The
Man, His Band and His Music.
In July 2014, Brooks revealed that he would be coming out with another album and embarking
on a global tour. He signed on with Sony Music Nashville and is in the midst of working on a studio album - his first since
Scarecrow dropped in 2001. His new album is set to arrive in the late fall of 2014.

his guitar for a baseball glove? Yes, it's true! In 1998 and 1999, the singer signed on for spring training with the San Diego
Padres. At the time, Brooks was in his late '30s. After his run with the Padres, Brooks then trained with the New York Mets.
His encore foray into baseball played out with the Kansas City Royals in 2004. Unfortunately, Brooks hits never crossed over
