I don't like his music that much but it's better than any of that autotuned Disney pop horseshit.

Most people don't like music but they think it's a good idea to have something to "dance" to or as background music in a bar or party etc.

His music has just the right mix of country, pop and rock to gain a wide range of listeners. That's why he sold so many albums. He has a universal appeal.

Is that dollars?

Garth was huge in the 90s and I think country still has a lot of fans willing to pay for music.  I’m pretty sure I had a couple of his CDs back then.  Huge crossover

Says he's worth almost $300,000,000.00.

I just tried to listen to one of his songs and got about fifteen seconds into it before I stopped.  I despise country western twangy singing.  Just don't have an ear for it at all.
