That's one opinion, but obviously there are a shit ton more who disagree with you. I'm not a fan of his music but I know personally he's a genuinely nice guy and is very good to his fans, unlike the former greatest rock drummer who is also a prick to his fans, and other people.

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.


Very well pointed.

He came on the scene at just the right time. There weren't too many crossover country guys in the early 90s. He filled that niche and cashed in. And now we have an endless supply of Garth brooks descendants.. horrifying

If you look back at his career, Garth brooks sort of invented a new style of pop country.. I don't recall any of his type in the 80s

Tried to watch one of his videos...seriously, we're talking multimillionaire budgets here, and we have a bunch of c***s prancing round in stetsons?

Seems to fill the same sort of niche as Pickeldick do for redneck rockers.

Easily ingested opium for the masses.
I'd google pickeldick, but I fear what will come up.  Why don't you just tell me what it is, Fridge.

Tangy and Johnnyblaze got it....It's Nickelback of course ha ha..

Yeah, if I started a thread for every artist I think is overrated or sucks (but a lot of people like) a bunch of people here would have their panties in a twist.

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.
Exactly.  Haters gonna hate, but Garth put out some solid music.  I own 3 of his albums.

  Kudos (from the Ancient Greek: κῦδος) is acclaim or praise for exceptional achievement.

How about a pic of the RUSH hour(s) commute in which train staff have to shove commuters into the train so that more can fit?

Crazily overcrowded trains or Garth Brooks...people can get used to anything. :P
Note the nonchalant looking guy in the baseball cap and blue top with the ear phones (2nd pic). Listening to Garth?

That made me laugh.  Reminded me of some NYC rush hours.  When the subway doors opened, you fell out.

I've been on the NYC trains too during rush hour. Still, it's much worse here. There's nothing like having someone else's briefcase pressed hard against your crotch, your nose drowning in someone's ocean of perfume or cologne, an elbow poking the side of your ribs, and an umbrella finding the exact center of your spine. And yesterday it was even worse! It's like having Garth on the earphones turned up to 11 !
