Garth grew up the youngest of six children and had a regular childhood just like any other child. It was when he reached college age that he thought he would like to try his hand at music, this decision did not sit well with his parents so they made a deal with him, if he went to college and earned himself a degree and still wanted to play music they would support his decision one hundred percent.
While at college Garth played his music any opportunity he had and like he promised his parents he earned a degree in Advertising. Well college was over and Garth was torn between Athletics and his Music, then came the deciding factor, on the radio Garth heard George Strait's song Unwound, it was from that moment on he knew he wanted to play COUNTRY MUSIC, he grew up listening to a wide variety of music including Kiss, Queen and James Taylor and he loved it all but hearing Unwound made him decide country music was for him to play.
