PrincessTracy... first welcome to the Planet!
What a wondeful story. I'm SO glad you shared it with us. I love to hear these personal Garth stories. Maybe it's because I've never had mine but I love living vicariously.
It's so cool that Garth gave you the advice about school and that you acted on it and you as the song goes... "do what you gotta do"... but to be correct I guess I have to say, "did what you had to do!"
I dont think I've EVER heard of anyone ever having a bad Garth visit. I've heard it with other artists. I had a friend that had a bad experience with Clint Black for example. I dont usually hold it against the artists because everyone has a bad day... but I'm just more amazed that I've never heard of Garth having one... or at least that when he did he never let it touch his relationship with his fans. It's "very cool".
Please be sure to stay and post A LOT! We love meeting new family members and that is what you are to us now.
But you've got to be tough when consumed by desire
'Cause it's not enough just to stand outside the fire
