Great Quotations: Garth Brooks

Videos by American Songwriter

“The songwriting, that’s what it’s all about. This is it. We can talk all day about [being an] entertainer. We can talk all day about record sales, but it starts with the song and to be confused as a songwriter and then honored as one, that’s the bomb. I can go in that room and show you all the guys I hang out with and they are songwriters, and to be called that with these guys, I’m very flattered. I’m not saying I agree with it, but I’m very flattered.”
