I know that many artists say they are being ripped off by people downloading their music on sites such as YouTube. However, I can't help thinking that they are still earning fortunes and should really allow people to use their music if no personal gain is involved. I recently downloaded a video to YouTube of Garth Brooks The Dance, with lyrics, but it was taken down by YouTube as it had the original soundtrack I had taken from a Genuine CD that I had bought - Garth Brooks/ The Hits. I therefore had to replace the soundtrack with a very creditable performance which you can listen to here on...
I am writing this in regards to the song"The Dance and how it has effected my family and my life, My father was a big fan of Garth Brooks which in turn means that our child hood was filled with his music, we never complained as a matter of fact we all loved his songs
On July 30th 2006 my father passed away suddenly, my baby sister was home with him when this occurred she was just a child, when she called me that afternoon and told me that she couldn't wake daddy I immediately jumped in my truck and rushed to my baby sister side, he had passed due to a heart attack in his sleep
My name is Sharon and I work for Heinzerling Foundation in Columbus, Ohio. I have a resident
who is 16 years old and a huge fan of yours. He
knows all of your music. He has a cd that has videos of a concert you did. We have watched it so
much that it is now skipping. I am trying to find
him a new one. I think it would be really cool if you could send him a letter or something. He has a
black hat that is very similar to your white one and we put a picture of you on the front of the hat. He loves it. Hope to hear from you soon.
I have tried to get concert tickets for my daughter for years,with very disappointing no luck! Couldn't even buy them online -- What do I have to do to get her tickets? She is now 27 and been a fan since the first day she heard him. She even risked her job at the movie theatre just to get a glimpse of him. Her husband is currently serving in Kuwait and will miss Christmas holiday with her and their baby for the second time in a row. This would have made a great holiday gift for her! What do I have to do to get tickets????????
I've wanted to write to you for a long time and had not been able to find an address. So, I hope you see this.
I sent an email to you (hoping it was even a valid address) when my daughter Neoma was given three months to live. I told you that she just loved you and your music, and said it would mean so much to her if you could please call her.
When your office called, I was grieving (the doctors over-estimated her longevity) and very surprised. I'm sure my response was incoherent.
