Garth Brooks to be Inducted Into 2011 Songwriters Hall Of Fame

The 2011 Songwriters Hall of Fame Inductees have been announced and Garth Brooks is among the honorees.

Garth released the following statement with his thoughts on the honor:

I want to thank the Songwriters Hall of Fame for this distinguished honor. To consider myself a "songwriter" is something I find hard to agree with, for it is the songwriter that is the most gifted and most important ingredient in the music formula. I am humbled and flattered by this award and want to thank the songwriters I have written with in the past. I feel it is because of them I am receiving this award.

Garth joins fellow inductees including John Bettis, Leon Russell, Allen Toussaint, Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly.

From the press release:

Garth Brooks To Tour Again Soon?

Garth Brooks is already proving that he still has it as he wows Nashville audiences with his flood relief shows this week and a lot of fans are wondering just if and when ol' GB will hit the road again for another full-fledged tour.

While Garth didn't give us an exact answer, at a press conference this past Thursday, Garth did say that Trisha Yearwood, his wife for all of you living under a rock, gave him her blessing to go back out on the road around 2014-2015. At that time his youngest daughter, Allie Colleen, will have graduated high school and his contract in Las Vegas with the Wynn Encore Resort will have ended.

So, Garth fans, there is hope that he'll once again grace an arena stage near you in just a few years. I commend Garth for his commitment to his family before his career. We'll see you in a few years GB!

Garth Brooks' "Unanswered Prayers" TV Movie On Lifetime November 29th

It seems that all of a sudden Garth Brooks is everywhere again. Country fans surely remember Garth's hit song "Unanswered Prayers," which spent two weeks at number one on the charts back in 1990. Now, the song Garth co-wrote with Pat Alger and Larry Bastian, has inspired a made-for-television movie which will make its premier on the Lifetime network on Monday, November 29th.

Garth and Lisa Sanderson produced the film for their own company, Red Strokes Productions. The movie was filmed in Virginia and tells the story of a happily married father whose life changes when the girl of his dreams from high school returns to town.

The film stars Eric Close, Samantha Mathis and Madchen Amick. Country fans may remember Samantha from her role in the movie "The Thing Called Love," where she played Miranda Presley. A great movie, also starring the late River Phoenix, that all country fans should see!
