Few artists have had as much crossover success as Garth Brooks. The Okie not only took the country world by storm in the early-to-mid-1990s, but he was a certified mega pop star as well. And in doing so, Brooks redefined how country music was perceived — and performed. Brooks made country music arena-friendly. His songs were radio friendly as well, as his 1991 album “Ropin’ The Wind” proved. The album would go on to sale more than 14 million copies and produced hits (and Brooks standards) like “Rodeo,” “What She’s Doing Now,” “The River” and “Shameless” — a Billy Joel tune that showed that Brooks knows a great song when he hears it.

You can listen to Garth Brooks by going out and buying yourself a compact disc. We’re also pretty sure his music is on Amazon.
