Story Songs - G: Garth Brooks


Garth Brooks is the first musician I ever saw in concert! It was an amazing show (on his Fresh Horses tour), and I've loved his songs before and since then.

Here are some of my favorites:
  • The Thunder Rolls - If you've never listened to the extra verse in the live versions, you're missing out. Chills!
  • Ireland - A beautiful haunting ode to the morn of a battle.
  • Beaches of Cheyenne - Another heartbreaking rodeo love saga.
  • The River - One of the best life lesson songs I've heard.
  • Standing Outside the Fire - I've talked about this one before. Full of inspiration for when you need to pick yourself up and keep going!



  1. Not a country fan, but glad you enjoy him.

  2. I love The Thunder Rolls - great song!

  3. Garth Brooks is a comedian to me. How odd.

  4. I was privileged to see him in person the first year he did Las Vegas. Small venue, stage had him, a stool, his guitar and a bottle of water. AMAZING show....

    My favorites: Shameless, If Tomorrow Never Comes, Rodeo, The River, Unanswered Prayers and Low Places.
