Rare Video of Garth Brooks Crooning a Strait Classic

1  comments

Today, Garth Brooks is one of the most prominent country singers of all time. In 1989, the Oklahoma native gained huge profit success with his self-titled debut album, which comprised famous singles such as “The Dance”. Still, it’s no wonder why he became one of the most popular country singers of the 90’s. Before all his successes, Brooks spent his years roving around Oklahoma. A young singer just trying to make it into the world of music, Brooks did a lot of things to get linked to a major label. He performed in clubs and bars, frequenting the Stillwater, Oklahoma club Wild Willie’s Saloon. In one television program, he also sang George Strait’s “Nobody in His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her”.

A Tiring Yet Humble Beginning

Garth Brooks was just 22 years old when he started to make his way to the music industry. A year after that, he met Rod Phelps, an entertainment attorney, who was the one pushing him to move to Nashville. An advice he never doubted, he instantly relocated and began making contacts in the music industry as he sought to find a way in. Circling back to the things he had to undergo to get money before making it to Nashville, are demo sessions and covers that he sold. These, of course, included appearing in bars, music venues, and television programs. All these things he sacrificed, with lack of sleep and limited time for himself, to be able to raise money to scope things out in Nashville.

These performances, however, became a start of what would become the legend of a man who has broken world records for sales repeatedly.

“Nobody in His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her”,  A Perfect Pick

While aiming for success, Brooks chose to issue a genuine tribute to one of his biggest country music inspirations, George Strait. Dean Dillon penned the song “Nobody in His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her”, which he also originally recorded. The song tells the story of a guy who breaks his girl’s heart. He cries over the loss even though he was the one who told her to move on.

Garth Brooks, his band, and a little mustache offered a glimpse at his undeniable talent. Here, he covers George Strait’s “Nobody In His Right Mind Would Have Left Her”, on local television, in his home state of Oklahoma.
