Profile Bio Text
Troyal Garth Brooks, known professionally as Garth Brooks (born February 7, 1962) is an American country music singer-songwriter. Successfully integrating rock elements into his recordings and live performances, Brooks soon began to dominate the country singles and country album charts and quickly crossed over into the mainstream pop arena, exposing country music to a larger audience.
Brooks has enjoyed one of the most successful careers in popular music history, with over 70 hit singles and 15 charted albums to his credit and over 130 million albums sold in the United States alone.
Garth Brooks has released six albums to achieve diamond status in the United States, those being; Garth Brooks - (10× platinum), No Fences - (17× platinum), Ropin` the Wind - (14× platinum), The Hits - (10× platinum), Sevens - (10× platinum) & Double Live - (21× platinum).
Throughout the 1990s he broke records for both sales and concert attendance. In 1999, looking to expand his career boundaries, Brooks began a project that was intended to foreshadow a movie that followed the life of a rock star by the name of Chris Gaines. The album left most people scratching their heads due to the fact that the movie was never released and the album was left to stand alone, while it did not sell as well as his other titles; it nevertheless reached #2 on the album charts and went double platinum.
Troubled by conflicts between career and family, in 2001 Brooks officially retired from recording and performing. During this time he has sold millions of albums through an exclusive distribution deal with Wal-Mart and has sporadically released new singles. More recently he has issued a successful collection of his hit singles from 1989 through to 2007 which itself has gone 5x platinum.
