Papa Loved Mama
Garth Brooks may be the first artist in history to earn seven RIAA Diamond Awards, but his humble musical career began in Tulsa, Oklahoma, when he learned to sing and play guitar during weekly family talent nights. What he learned there would eventually lead to an iconic career in Nashville, Tennessee, culminating in the release of his first self-titled album in 1989 to immediate success. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 13 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, which made one thing abundantly clear: this country music legend was only getting started.
