Garth Brooks is in the spotlight in a big way these days with his massive World Tour, his just-released “The Anthology: Part 1, The First Five Years” book and CD box set and his latest hit, “Ask Me How I Know,” approaching No. 1 on the country airplay charts.
Despite all that success, Garth’s greatest accomplishment has been raising his three daughters to be the young women they are today. One daughter is married while another is engaged. His third daughter is single, but Garth says her boyfriend is definitely marriage material.
In a new interview with Orlando, Florida, country radio station K92.3, Garth says, “I can tell you right now, the kid that she’s dating right now is one of the sweetest guys on the planet. We’d be lucky to have him in the family.”
With all of his daughters, he has stressed how important it is for them to make sure they’re taking care of themselves first before they get into a long-term relationship.
He adds, “The most important thing for her to know, to hear from her father, is she’s got to find happiness within herself before she can share it with anybody else. That’s the main thing. Just get your own ship right, then you can be a partner to whoever you’re a partner with.”
That approach to life is working quite well for Garth, as he just celebrated his sixth CMA Entertainer of the Year win, which is a record in that category. Garth’s latest hit, “Ask Me How I Know,” is also on track to hit No. 1 at country radio next week.
Garth is also up for Tour of the Year and Fan Moment of the Year at this year’s Rare Country Awards. You can vote now through Dec. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com. The winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event in Nashville on Dec. 14.
