Garth Brooks was a multi-platium performer in the 90s. He sold out stadiums and sold millions of albums. Then he went into retirement to raise his children. While in retirement, the music industry changed.
This year he has launched a comeback with a tour and new album which goes on sale today.
However, he is breaking new ground by sticking to the old rules.
*His music is not on iTunes, Pandora, or Spotify. Instead he is using a platform called Ghost Tunes in which he sells only entire albums.
* He announces tour dates individually and goes to the city for a week to 10 days.
*He does more than one show per night.
* He recently signed on to social media but I’m sure he will handle it differently.
Brooks is still selling out stadiums and more albums than most. He is doing it by making his own rules. He did not follow the crowd and as a result lost millions or is not being paid for his trade. Garth found his own way and his fans are embracing it. His music is heartwarming and he continues to make fans by being honest and human.
Keep rolling on, Garth!
