Five of our favorite Garth Brooks songs


In the ‘90s, you could not turn on a country radio without hearing Garth Brooks.

Brooks was born on February 7, 1962, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His professional career started in 1985 playing the Oklahoma bars and clubs; however, he was mostly playing rock music.

His career has seen numerous accomplishments, including two Grammy awards, 22 ACM awards, and he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He also had nine albums go diamond!

In celebration of his birthday, here are five of our favorite Garth Brooks songs:

“The Thunder Rolls”

Brooks co-wrote this 1991 hit. It was on his No Fences album. It hit the number 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country charts. The music video was even nominated for a Grammy. Fun fact, the song was first recorded by Tanya Tucker.

“Friends in Low Places”

Arguably Brooks’s most iconic song-- “Friends in Low Places” was released in 1990 as the lead single for his No Fences album. It spent four weeks at the number 1 spot on the country charts. The song also hit number 3 on the Irish Singles charts.

Want to make friends, walk into a bar and play this song!

“Callin’ Baton Rouge”

Originally recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys in 1978, Brooks recorded his version for his 1993 album In Pieces. It would peak at the number 2 spot on the country charts for 1994.

“The Dance”

“The Dance” was the final track on his self-titled album released in 1990. It hit the number 1 spot in both Canada and the U.S.


This was the first single off of his 1991 album Ropin’ the Wind. You can’t go to a rodeo without this song playing. Also, for many young ladies, it probably hits too close to home.
