Who Is Garth Brooks
American Country music star’s full name is Troyal Garth Brooks. He was born on 7th February 1962 in Omaha, USA. His father was Troyal Raymond Brooks Jr. and his mother was Colleen McElroy Carroll. Garth’s singing abilities were due to the constant efforts of his parents. His parents used to host weekly talent nights and every child was required to participate in the show either by singing or doing skits. This is how Garth learned to play Banjo & guitar both.
Due to his family values, Garth used to sing at family functions but in his childhood, he was more attracted to athletics. Running, baseball, javelin throw, and football were his favorites. He even worked as a bouncer at a local bar.

In his own word, he said, “But try to remember, this is one of the things I’m going to give myself credit for. For 16 years, I was a soccer dad. Last on the list.
