Arguably one of the most recognized names in country music history, Garth Brooks' retirement from the industry means he no longer makes frequent appearances on the Grand Ole Opry stage. Nonetheless, the Oklahoma native has made such an impact on country music that acknowledgement of his roles in country music and the Grand Ole Opry is necessary.

Background and Early Career

  • Brooks was born February 7, 1962 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He grew up in Yukon, Oklahoma, before completing a degree in advertising from Oklahoma State University in 1984.

  • He returned to Nashville in 1987, was signed to Capitol Records in 1988, released his self-titled debut album in 1989. That album kick-started what would become one of the most successful careers in music history with tracks such as "If Tomorrow Never Comes" and "The Dance." Subsequent albums over more than a decade would make Brooks second only to Elvis as the world'

Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
My girlfriend and i had a wonderful time in nashville recently. We attended the grand ole opry and saw our favorite entertainers up close: (leann rimes, lorrie morgan, pam tillis and others). We shopped a lot in the malls and downtown shops, dined at some really fine restaurants, and visited the country music hall of fame. We attended the michael buble' concert, which was fantastic as we sat near the front of the stage. We slept very comfortably at the alexis inn and suites near the airport. My girlfriend's father, jack mallante, had performed with ernest tubb and barbara mandrell years ago, and we got lots of pictures of him and them and memorabalia. We had a wonderful time in nashville! Thank you, vacations made easy!

Our tour guide/driver was very educated in the country music stars' lives, homes, etc. He also knew a great deal about the other high priced homes in 3 counties which gave our trip more excitement.

This is a must for your visit to nashville. Our tour guide was great! Don't miss the tour if you want to get closer to the stars. I will never look at alan jackson, tim mcgraw and others the same without thinking about their homes and where they live. It makes them feel more peraonal.
