Performers were also recognized in the house resolution. The two top selling solo music artists of all time, Elvis Presley and Garth Brooks, are rooted in country music. The bill goes on to mention that Garth Brooks is the top selling solo artist in United States history with 128 million records sold and quotes Willie Nelson, who has had his run ins with the government, as saying that country music is where “People tell their life stories”.

That's pretty cool! Don't really understand the purpose it serves, but its nice to see some recognition for a great genre of music!
