Garth Brooks plans apperance at country radio event

Monday, January 7, 2008 – Garth Brooks will make a special appearance at the opening session of Country Radio Braodcasters's annual gathering on Wednesday, March 5. Brooks will answer audience-submitted questions. WSIX-FM morning host Gerry House will conduct the interview and moderate the discussion.

After the interview, one CRS radio attendee will be chosen to sing a duet with Brooks on a song from the singer's record-breaking catalog.

CRB President Becky Brenner said, "We are thrilled that Garth has agreed to give our CRS attendees the opportunity to talk with one of the most amazing country artists of our time."

Big Machine and Valory Music President Scott Borchetta added, "Garth continues to support country radio and engage at the highest level."

Borchetta explained that the seeds of Brooks's CRS-39 appearance were sown during a promotional event for radio programmers called The Garth Radio Seminar (GRS). "This panel was inspired by the "GRS" experience. Keith Kaufman (WSIX program director) and CRB Agenda Committee Vice Chair) wanted to see if we could re-create the GRS opening panel. I took it to Garth, and not only was he supportive, he notched it up a level - it was his idea to have a lucky MD or PD come up and sing a song with him as the support musician. This will be a great way to kick off CRS."

Brooks released "The Ultimate Hits" in November 2007, which contained several new songs.

The reality does not exactly match that sentiment for Garth Brooks, but at times he comes mighty close. The high points for Brooks are the three most traditional country songs - a couple of honky tonkers ("Honky-Tonk Somewhere" and "Cowboys and Friends") and a ballad ("Whiskey to Wine"). ...
CD review - Man Against Machine After releasing his debut album in 1989, Garth Brooks released music almost every year until he announced his retirement in 2000. Since then, he has released repackaged hit collections, new music on "Scarecrow" and "The Lost Sessions" and last year's cover song collection "Blame it All on My Roots." Over the years, there have been live recordings, concert and music video collections. The country songwriter became a pop culture icon, transcending genre to become ...
CD review - Blame It All On My Roots - Five Decades of Influences Garth Brooks is back with his first release of "new" material since 2001's "Scarecrow." (Truth in advertising, his "The Ultimate Hits," which actually is part of the new box set, included four new songs back in 2007). And it's quite an undertaking - four CDs of covers - Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot, an amalgam of country, rock, soul and folk; the two-CD set, "The Ultimate Set" and a DVD of his live performance in Vegas. ...
