Garth Brooks Artist Snapshot:

Garth Brooks catapulted to superstardom in the early 1990s, in part by bringing pop production values to country and creating a spectacular pyrotechnic stage show. Peel away the glitz and thunder, however, and what lies beneath is a gifted singer-songwriter in the classic tradition, one equally at home with country sentiment and rock bravura. When this Springsteen-in-a-cowboy-hat grew tired of country's constraints, he created an alter ego, Chris Gaines, in order to record more straightforward pop/rock.

Product Notes

Brooks's third album, 1991's Ropin' the Wind, found him distancing himself further from the new-traditionalist hat-pack. The album's centerpiece was an all-stops-out Southern-rock cover of Billy Joel's "Shameless." Another hit single, "Rodeo," boasted a slinky Creedence-style groove. Brooks's propensity for sentimental folk-pop clich├ęs surfaced on the ballads "What She's Doing Now" and "The River." But "We Bury the Hatchet" and "Papa Loved Mama" were tongue-in-cheek attempts at honky-tonk and truck-drivin' boogie. While Brooks subsequently has been criticized for putting a cowboy hat atop rock & roll and calling it country, these tracks sound more like vintage Ernest Tubb next to some of today's Nashville Pop-tarts. --Rick Mitchell
