Let’s talk a little bit about the music of Garth Brooks. In 1989, he released his first album, Hungry Years.
Brooks had his first No. 1 hit song off of this album, titled If Tomorrow Never Comes. He received a solid boost when Kenny Rogers had the young man out to open for his tour. In 1990, Brooks’ second album titled No Fences came out. That’s the one where you can find the classic Friends In Low Places and The Thunder Rolls. This album proved to be a monster of success. It had four No. 1 singles off of it. Unbelievable.
All that was followed up by 1991’s release of Ropin’ the Wind. Brooks’ record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Album chart.
