HIT RELOAD TO UPDATE PAGE


GARTH WAS ASKED, "IF YOU COULD TRADE YOUR MUSIC CARREER AND BECOME A GREAT BASEBALL PLAYER, WOULD YOU MAKE THAT DEAL? "WITHOUT HESITATION BROOKS SAID,"NO, NOT AT ALL. NO OFFENSE TO THE GUYS THAT SWING THE BAT, BUT THE SWORD THAT MUSIC GIVES YOU TO ACTUALLY GO OUT THERE AND DO STUFF FOR GOOD AND ACTUALLY CHANGE PEOPLE'S LIVES WITH A MESSAGE. WHEN YOU GET THREE MINUTES IN FRONT OF THE NATION...I DON'T THINK YOU CAN ASK FOR A GREATER GIFT THAN THAT. IF YOUR TRYING TO PUT ACROSS THE IDEA THAT GOD EXISTS OR TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, THOSE THINGS ARE PRICELESS." ~GARTH BROOKS~ countrystars.com

"SO 'FACE TO FACE' JUST SAYS IT ALL FOR ME. IT'S VERY DARK, BUT DARKNESS CAN WORK IN A GREAT WAY, LIKE 'FACE TO FACE' OR THIS THING OFF 'SEVENS' CALLED 'FIT FOR A KING'.
