Garth Brooks Overview

Advantages: Great songs with stories.
Disadvantages: Very seldom find Garth's C.D's in the sale section.

...I was introduced to the music of Garth Brooks in a slightly unusual way. My local pub was holding a Karaoke evening and the compere, Tony, an ex semi professional singer with a country and western band, kicked the evening off with a song called ‘That Summ ...
