    You know you're a Garth fanatic if....

    The news of Garth becoming a Hall of Famer made your day (Guilty)

    You wonder if Garth will get out of Vegas sooner, knowing that 2014 isn't that far off. (Guilty)

    You agree with Garth about the singers who have not been inducted into the Hall of Fame (Guilty. He, Connie and Hargus deserve it, but so do a lot of the singers from the 1970s and 1980s era, like Kenny Rogers, Crystal Gayle, Ronnie Milsap, John Anderson, Randy Travis and Keith Whitley)

    You know you are a Garth fanatic....



    When you knew the announcement was made this time of year last year and starting checking weeks ago about when the 2012 class was announced- guilty


    If you cried when you read about the announcement and watched Garth accept-Guilty.




    I do agree with Garth and hope that Randy Travis is in the hall of fame in the near future..Next year should be his year unless Alan Jackson gets picked.. I also feel bad for Kenny Rogers and there are so many artist in that era deserve it.. Saying that, Garth should have been picked.

    You know you're a Garth fanatic when....

    You hear Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan cover Much Too Young and think it's good but you know nobody sings it like Garth (Guilty)

    You told somebody to talk to the hand when they told you "Garth Brooks is done."

    You start making up set lists for 2014.

    You're anxious to see what Garth's plaque will look like when he gets his medallion (guilty, big time!)

    hmm- may be sticking my neck out here, but if memory serves, originally, Wild horses wasn't even a radio single- that didn't happen until the "remix" edition... (2000 I think it was? I may be wrong on the date).. that's probably why.. It's a great hit though, don't' get me wrong- a great song...

    If you listen to Tanya Tucker's version of "The Thunder Rolls" and cringe because you know the original (by Garth) is 10 times better.

    Ehh, Garth's is definitely better... !

    As is his version of FILP, and not MArk Chestnutt's!

    A little crazy

    You listened to AC/DC, G&R, Metallica, etc etc, then ran out of CDs on the 12 CDs for a penny club back then, and bought a Garth album. Literally, I've listened to only Garth Brooks music ever since (17 years). I've listened to it so much, I've almost mastered sounding like him. When I was singing along at the Wynn, everyone sitting around me was looking at me like, "what in the world is going on here". Definitely a Garth wannabe.

    I'd love a representative DVD of the Vegas show! (nashville I have a 'copy' of, youtube songs mostly) , KC have, LA wildfires show would be great too!.. Closest I have to Vegas is the show when we was in Denver for a fundraiser 2 years ago (and that was thanks to someone I knew who went, and taped)

    Good one Charles!
    You know you're a Garth fanatic if you wonder when Garth will receive his medallion at the Hall of Fame.

    Mark Chesnutt's version of Friends in Low Places has no feeling, while Mr. Brooks' version does. You feel the guy kiss-off attitude in the way Garth starts singing "But you'll never hear me complaaaaiin!!!".

    You know you're a Garth fanatic when... you watch a PSA featuring We Shall Be Free and you think it's that unreleased video Garth was talking about back in '07 (Guilty - that happened the other night)

    You sang along with him and George Strait when they sang "The Cowboy Rides Away" and you don't even care for Strait. (I like his music a lot, so I don't fall under that category)

    You wonder what tune Garth will play at the star-studded George Jones tribute concert in November.

    You watch Trisha's cooking show just to see if Garth will appear (I haven't seen him on there yet)

    You find a clip of Garth winning Artist of the Decade in 1999 on an online video site and remember where you were when that happened. (Guilty)

    You would like to see Garth use pyrotechnics in his show if he ever comes back on tour (Guilty.)

    You would like to hear Garth sing our national anthem again.

    You've constantly explained to a friend or relative that Garth and Kix Brooks are not related.

    You change the local country station in your car and switch over to one of his CDs.

    You've never seen him in concert but you still hope to (Don't give up, y'all)

    You order the Wynn hat and did not see the show live in person but loved the box set DVD that much. Guilty. Christmas present to myself.

    You wonder why no lyrics were included inside the CD covers,

    You think Garth is funnier than Vince Gill and Brad Paisley combined (Guilty! He was funny on SNL but that Vegas show had me rolling on the floor, especially the DVD)

    You don't want Garth to make a video for his cover of Addicted to Love (Guilty, leave that to Shania, who did a fine job parodying it)

    You want to see Garth, George, Toby Keith and Tim McGraw singing "Unwound" together on the same stage.

    You've ever sang "The Call" with your significant other when you're in different rooms. (I'm gonna try that with mine)

    You hear Garth sing "Mrs. Robinson" and Forrest Gump enters your mind.

    You wake up chanting "Work!" (a reference to the title track of his new album) just for the heck of it.

    You wish the Ghost Tunes bundle could have included The Lost Sessions, the Christmas albums and the four CDs from Blame it All on My Roots (Guilty. He owns the masters to his recordings, so why bypass it).

    You pick up eight copies of Man Against Machine for relatives who are also Garth Brooks fans when you go to the retailer.

    You can't believe how many other country acts have covered "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" in their shows.

    You think Garth should've sang a little more on the FILP remake.

    You thought his performance at the Dallas awards show could have been a music video.

    You didn't buy the new box set because your Garth CDs are still in gpod condition. (Guilty)

    You wish he would sing "Man Against Machine" in its entirety in concert.

    You want to see a concert DVD from his current tour.

    You think Garth should've appeared at Strait"s last show so they could've sang "Unwound" together.

    You're still wondering what happened to the updated video of "We Shall be Free".

    You would like to hear Ricky Skaggs and Garth sing that America song he covered on Scarecrow together on the Opry with Kentucky Thunder backing them.

    You wonder why The Dance wasn't part of the Ireland show because it his favorite song.

    Gotcha- that I've seen (the performance) .. I don't know if I'd say it's music video worthy or not, but knowing Garth's seeming love for concert type videos, I can't say that I'd disagree on it being one... it was an ok performance to me.. not SUPERB but not bad either

    Iiked it with all the servicemen coming out during the guitar solo.Kinda reminded me a little texasof that other Oklahoman who does the USO tours, but not in a bad way. Garth sings the heck out of that song. Scott I know your not a TK fan but different strokes for different folks.

    You know you're a Garth fanatic if...

    You drew a picture of some of his most famous Mo Betta shirts in celebration of his Entertainer of the Year win at the CMAs (Guilty).

    You wonder how LSU got Garth"s permission to use Calling Baton Rouge as their fight song because he didn't write it.

    You think Garth could play a coach in a movie. (I believe he could, especially baseball, football or basketball)

    You're so used to him using water bottles on "The Fever" that when you see him do so on "Ain't Going Down" you think "Wrong song Garth".

    You spend one afternoon listen to his entire studio album catalog in chronological order. (Guilty, did it two weeks ago.)

    You wish Garth would've participated in the "Forever Country" mash-up. (So should have Stapleton and Chesney.)

    You thought Garth would update The Change video after 9/11 happened.
