TIMELINE

Garth Brooksbutton.gif (123 bytes) Garth Brooks was born on February 7, 1962, in Oklahoma. Garth started making big waves in the country world just as country music was beginning to have a resurgence in the music industry (largely in part to him). Garth contributed to the popularity of country music with his combination of post-folk rock and sensitive country sounds and lyrics. Garth showed the music industry that a country artist could release a multi-million selling LP and by the late 90s, Garth sold more LPs than any other solo artist in music history and country music had become a multi-million dollar selling tool. He is the only male artist to have 2 LPs sell over 10 million copies each. In Garth's youth, country music was present in his home (his mom was a country singer), but his focus was more on athletics. Garth made it to Oklahoma State University on a javelin throwing scholarship but eventually turned to music instead.

button.gif (123 bytes) In 1985, Garth moved to Nashville with a degree in advertising to pursue a country music career. Even though his quickly found it was an unsuccessful venture, and returned to Oklahoma, Garth returned to Nashville again in 1987 and signed with Capitol in 1988. Garth described that time: "I was scared to death," Garth now says. "When we first started, I had one thing in mind, and that was to make folks back home proud. I really felt like I was representing Yukon, Oklahoma, and more than anything I wanted them to like what I did. If I had to pick one word to describe the recording process that first time, I guess I'd say 'innocence'."

You always cut Christmas albums, it seems in the middle of summer for some reason to have them prepared in time for Christmas. And we did this one in June and July of '92. I remember Mark Miller the engineer, had strung Christmas lights all through the studio, put the fake snow and turned the air conditioning down. It was a blast. This album I would make every day of my life if I could. Totally no pressure, you're singing about what counts and that's the feeling of Christmas. Which in my opinion should be shared everyday of the year, instead of just one day of the year."
