<br>GARTH BROOKS AND WIFE HANG OUT WITH OLD FRIENDS
<br>
<br>Wednesday evening in Nashville Garth Brooks dropped in to surprise a*gathering of writers at the Bluebird Cafe that wrote or co-wrote with Garth*on some of his monster hits. Garth sang or harmonized on tunes by Pat*Alger, Kent Blazy, Kim Williams, Tony Arata, Dewayne Blackwell, Victoria*Shaw, Stephanie Davis, and Larry Bastian.
<br>
<br>Garth's wife Sandy (who has*writing credit on "That Summer" along with GB and Alger) sat behind Garth*for the entire two hours of performing and storytelling. On
<br>several*occasions Garth turned around to tap her on the knee as if to say this song*was meant for her.
<br>
<br>GARTH DETAILS
<br>
<br>Garth reminisced about the first time he heard Tony Arata*sing "The Dance" at a Bluebird writers night. It was one of those nights*that the audience wasn't paying attention, but Garth says he was spellbound*by the song. "That was one time in my life when I was glad nobody heard what*I heard," Brooks said.
<br>
<br>Larry Bastian ("Unanswered Prayers," "Rodeo") quipped, "Garth dragged our*family kicking and screaming into affluence."
<br>
<br>Stephanie Davis, from Montana, sang "Wolves" and mentioned that the song was*written for her grandparents, when they lost their ranch. She told Garth*that she had used the royalties from the song to buy them another ranch*right down the road from their original home.
<br>
<br>Tony Arata said that most of the writers there, who were comrades in the old*days, were delighted when they first heard Garth had landed a recording*contract. "We felt like one of us had broken out of the pen, had made it*over the wall." Kent Blazy added, "Only to hit another wall!"*(All these great writers have gathered in Nashville to record original*versions of their hit songs for an album. No details of album title or label*were revealed).

It was just on the nashville update at countrystars dated June 30th. The article says wednesday night. They update their news everyday.
<br>
<br>I remember the one from several months ago. That was prior to spring training and Garth had come with Ty England. Sandy was there also, but as I recall, she came later with a friend and sat in the back, not on
<br>stage with Garth.
<br>
<br>Also, Victoria Shaw and Stephanie Davis weren't at that one.
<br>
<br>"You may be right, I may be crazy"

Actually Victoria and Stephanie WAS at the other one last April.. :)
<br>
<br>I believe :)
<br>
<br>The one in April ALL Garth's known writers attended.
<br>
<br>But this don't sound like that one.
<br>As as Garth said... he would still be doing some time in Nashville even though he living in Oklahoma ... to work on ummmm an Album ;)
<br>So this don't surprise me at all :)

I get a calendar, from the Bluebird, at the end of every month telling me who is going to be there for the next month. It hasn't listed any of Garth's writers to attend since the performance they gave right before spring training.N

Garth was at the Bluebird Cafe on Feb 11th. It was Garth, Pat Alger, Tony Arata, Kent Blazy and Ty England. I know this because I missed my Garth moment by ONE STINKING DAY!! I was there on the 10th. I'm still upset!
