Well, things I did not know before like,
<br>Garth having to repeat his first course in marketing at Collage.
<br> His sister, Betsy, was at one time Ronnie Dunn's bass player in the house band at a place called Duke's night club in Tulsa.
<br>When Garth and Sandy went to Nashville, Santa Fe was with them. Really, I do not know anything abut Santa Fe.
<br>After Garth re-neg. his contract with Capitol, well I know about him getting 50% but I did not know Garth pays all recording and video costs.
<br>Never knew about Him giving two benifit concerts back in 1993 or so in LA at the 36,000 seat Great Western Forum, and the shows sold out in 34 min's.
<br>Not to mention His selling out Texas stadium's 65,000 seats in 92 min's.
<br>
<br>Just a couple of things I know now. :)

CR,
<br>
<br>You can learn about Santa Fe and Garth's early musical struggles in the book titled "The Road To Santa Fe" - it was written by a band member of Santa Fe without Garth's permission, but I found it very interesting.
<br>
<br>Thanks for the link.

CR, Kerry is right. That is a good book. I especially thought it interesting how Garth tells the band in the car while driving, out of the clear blue, he tells them he is gonna be more famous than _______. Sorry, can't remember the name. Waylon Jennings maybe?
<br> Anyway, I thought it odd he said he as opposed to us. And he was right!N
