makes up for failure in the home.

[Garth] Brooks bowed out of his exceedingly successful career for a simple reason: He wanted to spend more time with his family, vowing that he would not return fulltime to music at least until all three of his daughters graduated high school.

It’s a decision he’s clearly not regretted –back in 2000, Brooks explained in an interview that he realized, while attending one of his kids’ soccer games, that “I had more fun than all 10 years of touring.”

Didn’t Garth Brooks dump his wife for another country singer during that timeframe?

The start of his temporary retirement coincided with his divorce. You can draw your own conclusions, but I take it that he had a wakeup call, and realized that touring was not compatible with family life.

Friends of mine know him and his family. He is remarkably approachable and integrates well in the community. Definitely not like most of the top entertainers currently or from his era. His kids are allowed to be normal kids in many visible ways. Dad does not just send his nanny/personal assistant to escort them either.
