In about 1989 a country artist from Oklahoma burst on to the music scene with a song called Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old) that artist; Garth Brooks. From there on in there was nowhere for him to go but straight to the top. With singles such as Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old), Shameless, Ain`t Goin`Down (Til`The Sun Comes Up), Rodeo, The Thunder Rolls, Friends In Low Places, not to mention many more Garth became the number one country music singer of the 90`s. In the year 2000 there was a movie rumored to be made called The Lamb.
The Lamb was going to star Garth Brooks as a punk rocker named Chris Gaines. Garth in preparation for the roll created an alter ego named Chris Gaines and under the name of Chris Gaines, Brooks changed his appearance and recorded an album called Garth Brooks… In The Life of Chris Gaines. How ever the movie The Lamb never did get made Brooks kept his alter-ego and even did a guest appearance as Chris Gaines on SNL (Saturday Night Live).
In 2001 Garth announced to the Country Music world that he would be retiring from not only making music but also touring until his youngest daughter, Allie turned 18.

He then recorded three new singles called: More Than A Memory, Workin`For a Livin`, and Midnight Sun. The three singles can be found on Brooks`Ultimate Hits two disc album.
In 2009 Brooks announced that he was coming out of retirement and playing in the Encore Las Vegas on the Las Vegas strip. Brooks contract is for him to play a few weeks a year until the year 2015 which just happens to be the same year his daughter Allie turns 18.
