More on Garth Brooks [Courtesy of Wynn Las Vegas]:
Certified by the RIAA in 2000 as the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, Garth Brooks has sold in excess of 128 million albums and has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow on an artist.
In 2001, Brooks retired and moved back to Oklahoma to raise his children. In 2008, The President Elect, himself, requested that Brooks headline President Obama’s Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial. A crowd of over 300,000 did the “wave” to Brooks’ performance of “Shout” while the President sang along. That same year, the Governor of California asked Brooks to help the state. He performed five concerts in two days with the proceeds from 83,000 tickets donated to efforts to prevent fire catastrophes. Portions of the live concerts were shown as a TV special, Garth Brooks: Live in L.A. allowing viewers to donate as well.
In December 2010, Brooks finished an astonishing nine sold out concerts in six days to raise money for the flood relief efforts in Tennessee. ABC World News Tonight declared Brooks “The Person of the Week” and the Mayor of Nashville announced that this was a record December for downtown Nashville merchants due to the over 145,000 who attended the concerts.
In January 2012, he was named the best-selling artist of the last two decades by Billboard, Nielsen and SoundScan, with a whopping 68.5 million sales. Brooks was recently inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this fall. Brooks also sold out his upcoming appearance at the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. All 15,000+ seats sold out in less than a minute.
