In April 2009, it will be 20 years ago, that Garth Brooks, the biggest selling solo artist in USA history, made his debut, and became the fastest artist ever to sell 100 million albums.
In 2001 he retired, only to come out for special charity concerts or releasing an Ultimate Hits package that covered the music and videos of his career. Garth it seems is enjoying his retirement, raising his three young daughters and wont considered coming out of retirement until his youngest daughter turns 18, that is six years away.
Fans should respect his wishes, and fans should wait and have patience for a new tour and album in 2014. In saying this, I hope he marks his career with something special in April 2009, it will be 20 years since he came on the music scene and changed country music forever.
A box set wont do it, A one off performance wont even do it, so what he can do? There wont be a new studio album without a full tour so that is out of the question, a good idea would be for Garth to write an autobiography of his career so far, words straight from Garth's mouth, surly it will rocket to the top of the New York times best seller list and it will keep the fans happy, so how about that for a idea?, then of course he will have to do a book signing! I think that will be a great way to mark 20 years as one of music's legends.
