Well I just read a bunch of these letters and I'm sitting here crying likea baby;You(Garth) have touched so many lives,mine included. You have a wayof making people feel special. That's such a good thing! You have so many songs that are meaningful for me that I don't know just where to start. About 3 years ago my husband and I were expecting our first child,it was an unexpected pregnancy but we were thrilled. About 19 weeks into the pregnancy I found out that my unborn child had a NTD called anencephily.This is where the fetus never develops a brain and they are unable to survive outside the womb. This was such a devastating blow to us and I didn't know if I would survive. I prayed and prayed that the testswere wrong, but they weren't. After the pregnancy terminated we tried again felt such an emptiness and I had to fill it. I did get pregnant once again but soon after I miscarried. Then we tried again for about a year. we finally did conceive again, but we were afraid to get excited about it because we still had to be sure that this fetus would not have the same condition. We didn't tell anyone because it was so hard to tell them the bad news afterward that we didn't want to have to do that again if there was a problems at 16 weeks we went for the amniocentesis and got the results; everything was fine! We now have a beautiful 10 month old daughter and she just loves your music. I played and sang it to her during my entire pregnancy(especially Unanswered Prayers, The River, The Dance and Two of A kind Working on a Full House) those songs are so inspirational for myself and my husband who loves your music too. During my ninth month of pregnancy you came to our area on your tour. I called for 4 hours and finally got through to get tickets to the last show that was added to the schedule. It was Tuesday night at the Worchester Centrum in Massachusetts. I didn't care if I went into labor right there at the show, I was not going to miss it for anything. It was THE BEST! My unborn daughter even loved it. She wasdancing and kicking around so much to your music I thought she would come right out my bellybutton. When I went in to the hospital for her delivery I took my CD's of you with me so that it would be the first music she would here. She just loves your music and at only 31/2 months she saw your concert from Central Park on HBO. She was boogying all over the place in her jumper. Don't ever stop doing what you do! Please! It's too good a thing to lose.

We love you and your family, you are all a real inspiration.

It is safe to say that most everyday people (not celebrities), if allowed one wish, would wish for more money, health, or to better themselves in one way or another. Well my name is Michele and I have one wish very different from all others. My only wish is to have Garth sing or even just attend my wedding on October 9th, 1999. It would be such an honor to meet him and Sandy. Not to sound like your typical sob story, but I don't come from a weathly family or a popular one for that matter. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters all of whom do not speak with each other for various personal reasons. My Grandparents adopted me when i was 2. My grandfather died when i was 2 1/2 and my grandmother (whom I refer to as my mother), recently passed on three years ago of Alzheimer's (which she had for 11 Years). Since then, I now have a three year old, Jeremy, who has Asthma. On October 9, 1999 i will be wed to my best friend of 8 years, also Jeremy's dad. Gordon and myself can't afford to have all our friends and (his family) at our wedding as it is, so it would be such and honor to have my biggest dream come true.. In a nut shell, I would to have you Garth and your lovely wife Sandy at my wedding. Just to chill with you guys for the day would be "Very Cool"!!! PS.... Jeremy can sing "Friends in low places!!" Cute hugh? Best wishes to you and your family.................love Michele!!!! Mikgord99@aol.com


Dear Garth, I just wanted to say "Thank-You" for helping me understand my unanswered prayer. 4 years ago I lost my 3 month old son to SIDS. I prayed so hard for God to let him live, but he died. I blamed him for so long until this past summer when I first heard your song. I smiled. I now realize that "God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers" because he gave me my son Tayler, (Who now is 3 and thinks he's Garth Brooks. Loves your performance in Central Park and Ireland. Even has his own guitar to sing along with) Even though a day doesn't go by that I don't think about him I can now atleast be at peace. He has taught me alot about life, and so has Garth Brooks. I'll be looking forward when you come to Pennsylvania again. Hoping you'll be back at State College because if you do, I'll be there. You'll recogize me, I'll be the one with the smile.

Garth............... When I read how much so many people love you and believe in you, I just want to cry.... Not tears of sadness but tears of JOY... Your music has changed so many people's lifes... saved so many from suicide... relief for the weary soul... like a river of water that flows thru our body to bring us rest from the everyday struggles in our lives... Your music is soothing like water and we are like grass savoring every drop that comes our way...  Thank God for you and everyone involved in your life and to those that had the courage to accomplish your dream with you ... May God Bless All Of You... When I come to Indiana on May 1st to see you... I will bring a copy of these precious words from people that love you and respect how much you have effected their lives and place it on the stage with all the other gifts you will get.  And I know you will read these words and I want you to know the fire inside my heart that you place there with your songs and Voice will lead me to the light and all the other believers of yours that love you.  I'm a "believer" and I will love you forever.....and when I've been to see you four times in concert , I watched the people and how they react just like you said to do... and I see love...admiration... faith... trust... and tears well in their eyes... but when we sang "We Shall Be Free" in Central Park and I was in the middle of all those around me... I felt proud to be there standing in front of you with hundreds of thousands of people ( THAT WERE MORE LIKE FAMILY TO ME)  clapping over-head and singing that song because I believe in the words that are like apart of my very soul.... Thank-you from my heart for all you have blessed us with... What more could we ask from God... You are precious to the world and I'm honored to be apart of you and your music that reaches the hearts of all who listen....  God Bless........... Diane Guest


I have followed Garth's career since day one.  It all started in 1989 when Iattended a Fourth of July celebration in Scottsdale, AZ., where several country stars were to be performing, one Garth Brooks, came on to the stageand nobody really knew who he was, the weather was really bad that day, and it began to pour down rain, but I didn't care, I was staying. So me and some buddies stood in the rain and listened to Garth for the first time.  God, I will never forget that day, it will forever stick in my mind as a day that changed my life.. I have bought every album on the day of it's release, waited in endless long lines to purchase tickets to see this man perform, (and by the way, if you have never been to a Garth concert, you don't know what your missing, he is by far, the greatest "entertainer" of our time) Man, does he know how to bring down a house..  As you can tell I love this man, he is such an inspiration to me and has had such an impact on my life, he is "purely genuine", and I think that anybody that has gotten the chance to encounter him is sooo lucky.  There would be so much to say.. and if by chance you arereading this Garth, I feel like I already know you, I admire you with my whole heart, I think you are the best "daddy" to your girls, and a great "hubby" to Sandy, she is one lucky lady.. Keep up the Outstanding work!!!  You are by far, the COOLEST and GREATEST!!!  A fan in phx, Heather Hook E-mail address..

Dear Garth,

I do not know if you will ever read this, but it's worth a try (How You Ever Gonna Know ,,Right?) I just want to say that you are and always will be my inspiration. I know that you hear, and read these things all the time, but I just have to say it, you inspire us, you produce songs with real life meaning, songs that any one person can relate to, to cry to , to laugh to, songs that you can sing along with, smile with,remember those special times, you truly take into your heart, your fans, you're kind and considerate and very well spoken and fun loving guy, who has kept that family goodness about even with the fame,and fortune. I am probrally the only Garth Brooks fan that has not seen you in concert, but hey, that's allright ,I have tried but not succeeded, I shall not give up though. I recently moved to Hawaii and all though this is a very beautiful place to live, country music is not popular here , like it is on the mainland and the farthest west so far that you have come is California and we have just heard that you will be coming to Seatle, WA ,which is not yet offical, but if it is that is great, us folks from the Aloha state will be there in full force, ( we will be the ones wearing the aloha shirts and cowboy boots,giving you the shaka,(hang loose) singing the Two Pina Coladas song ) Anyway, I do want to wish you and Sandy a very belated Happy Anniversary and hope that you have many more to come ,and please tell Sandy that we really appreciate how she shares her man with all us fans, and I hope those girls of yours are all fine and well, Take Care and God Bless You!!
ALOHA !!!!!
