Biography


Garth Brooks is one of the best-selling country music singers. Born Troyal Garth Brooks on February 7, 1962, he is the youngest child of Troyal Raymond Brooks, a draftsman for an oil company, and Colleen Carroll, a 1950s-era country singer. His talents were polished since he was a kid as young Brooks in the family's weekly talent nights.

He studied advertising at Oklahoma State University but ended up pursuing a career as a singer due to his strong passion for music. He played in Oklahoma clubs and bars until 1985 when he met entertainment attorney Rod Phelps. Thanks to the lawyer's encouragement and contact in Nashville, Brooks moved to the state in hopes to get a record deal.
