These type of people get full of themselves, and/or they think money and fame are more important than who they really are and what they think about God and reality.

Instead of having the guts to stand up to the filth of leftist immorality, they end up giving in and becoming as morally vacuous as the left.

Thus the support for a fraud who supports abortion, homosexuality, theft and worship of Caesar.

Judging from the photos I have seen of him Garth could use a line or two. Somebody point him to the salad bar

Ignorant Dope. Glad he has not received nor will he ever receive a penny of my hard-earned entertainment dollar.

Didn't we already know Garth Brooks was an unstable whackjob from some behavior in the past?

After Compact Discs became the top recording medium some record stores began selling “previously owned” CD’s. The music industry briefly panicked believing the market for new CD’s would be diluted. Garth Brooks threatened to pull his products from any store that sold used CD’s. I never liked his crap anyway.

Is Garth one of those “cowboys” that’s all hat / no cattle?

All those years of wearing too-tight Wranglers have had a cumulative effect on his cognitive abilities.

In 1999, Brooks and his wife separated, announcing their plans to divorce on October 9, 2000. The divorce became final in 2001.

In the mid-1990s, many tabloids reported throughout the decade that he was actually having an affair with longtime friend and collaborator Trisha Yearwood. The two have continually denied having had an affair. Following Brooks’s divorce, however, the pair did begin dating, and the couple wed on December 10, 2005, at their home in Oklahoma, marking the second marriage for Brooks and the third for Yearwood. They own a house in Goodlettsville, Tennessee and a house in Malibu, California, and Port St. Lucie, FL but keep a primary residence at a ranch in Owasso, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa where they live.

Brooks issued a statement: “I am flattered Steve Wynn believes in me as an entertainer, and my deal with him is not affected by ticket price.

Well Garth, your music sucks and your career is just as over as the dixie chicks. Tell that little joke at the next concert you have in Texas. You will likely get a good old fasioned TX @$$ whoopin’.

In the early years Garth was very good. Then, over the past 10 years he started to introduce more and more “black” sounds into his C&W and that’s when he lost me.

He tried to use is influence to actually change C&W into some type of multicultural “save the world” type of music.

There is a song written about the change by the name of “Murder on Music Row.” By Alan Jackson. He was talking about the people like Garth who wanted to do away with our traditional C&W music.

(Murder on Music Row by Alan Jackson)

Nobody saw them running
From 16th Avenue
They never found the fingerprints
Or the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music
Cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder
Down on music row

The almight dollar
And the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition
And for that, someone should hang (”Ahh, you tell ‘em Alan”)
They all say “Not Guilty!”
But the evidence will show
That murder was committed
Down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry
And the fiddles barely play
But drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars
Are mixed up in your face
Ol’ Hank wouldn’t have a chance
On today’s radio
Since they committed murder
Down on music row

They thought no one would miss it
Once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them ol’
Drinkin’ and cheatin’ songs (”Oh, but I still buy ‘em”)
Well there ain’t no justice in it
And the hard facts are cold
Murder’s been committed
Down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry
And you can’t hear fiddles play
With drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars
Mixed right up in your face
Why the Hag wouldn’t have a chance
On today’s radio
Since they committed murder
Down on music row

Why they even tell the Possum
To pack up and go back home
There’s been an awful murder
Down on music row

A fitting song to illustrate Garth’s contribution to the destruction of C&W.

He had an infamous Super Bowl video that featured a homo kiss. I don’t think he ever even pretended to be conservative.

In the ‘80s, country was smooth crossover like Eddie Rabbit, Restless Heart, and Alabama. I never liked his music, but I guess he’s notable for bringing the redneck twang back to country. Ironic, since he always said he was a rock fan at heart.

Trisha Yearwood must have sat upon Garth's face too long and Garth has suffered some brain damage from anoxia.

I blame Garth, Reba , Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, and all these other “stars” of today for the death of country music.
Give me oldies or Carolina beach music any day.

Well of course being from Alabama, my fav country acts are Hank Jr. and the Alabama band. Both pretty much done for now days. Their old stuff is on my CDs so I can at least relive the 70s & 80s, when both had good stuff.

newsGarth Brooks: American Political System Needs ‘Kick In The Ass’

An event honoring former President George H.W. Bush Monday night includes performances by Carrie Underwood, Cee-Lo Green and Garth Brooks, the latter of whom thinks the nation’s political system needs a “kick in the ass.”

Brooks, who has apparently forgotten that Obama once said his iPod contains “everything but Garth Brooks.”

“The whole political system kind of has me concerned right now to tell you the truth — 200 years old and we might think of about, you know, kind of kicking it in the ass a little bit,” said the singer. “It just seems like we vote for things because they’re Republican or Democratic… I think we should vote for [politicians and laws] because they’re right or wrong and we kind of have seemed to have fallen into that trap.”

Not being a Super Bowl fan I don't remember that video but I remember something. Maybe that at the height of his career he had a mental breakdown and said he was giving up singing.

"Murder on Music Row" is indeed a great song and the lyrics aptly summarize what went wrong on 16th Avenue (as it will always be known to me).

Back when C&W was true to its roots and before it became diluted, it was largely unapologetically pro-American and stood for God as well as Conservative principles. Back in the pre-Garth era, it was also very un-politically correct as exemplified by Guy Drake's great Welfare Cadillac.

I do think its ironic that in American Honky-Tonk Bar Association, he sings for the “over-taxed.” In that song he also says:

When Uncle Sam dips in your pocket
For most things you don’t mind
But when your dollar goes to all of those
Standing in a welfare line
Well rejoice you have a voice

Yet he supports the welfare and tax party.

Dissonance will kill the American psyche.

Well, i was going to go through my music collection, and get new cds of everything he has since i have nothing to play my old garth tapes on now... now i’m torn wether to burn mp3s to cd, buy used cds at PacRats, or use my freebies through BMG to finish the collection, so at least a rat supporter doesn’t get a dime of my hard earned dough.

Yeah let me tell ya, this has me torn. I have an original of his self titled album autographed when he performed live at Libby’s over in Daysville, I have No Fences on vinyl, I actually have a copy of Ropin The Wind on 8 track, everything else by him is a tape copy, except for Sevens and In Pieces which I have on CD... tuff decision indeed...

Garth stop making us fans prioritise between our values and our enjoying your good music, shut up and SING... or as the rock says “IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK”
