About Garth Brooks and His Album
In 1989, Garth Brooks debuted his self-titled album. Many country music fans across the country fell in love with it. As a result, the album rocketed to spot number 2 on the Billboard’s Country Albums chart and reached No. 13 on the Billboard 200 album chart. On another note, the very first single released from the album, “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)”, found its way into country radio’s Top 10. Sad enough, it could not quite make it all the way to the top. That was the time when “If Tomorrow Never Comes” became stronger. The subsequent single raced its way to the top of the chart, giving the Oklahoma-native his first chart-topper.
“If Tomorrow Never Comes” continued to win Brooks Song of the Year and Single of the Year at the 1989 ACM Awards, and nominations at the CMAs. The track is the first of many No. 1s for Brooks, including “The Dance” from the same project. The success of both of those hits paved the way for the success of his sophomore album, No Fences. This album spent 23 weeks at the top of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
In the liner notes of Garth Brooks’ second compilation album, The Hits, he wrote:
“’If Tomorrow Never Comes’ will probably always be my signature song. I ran the idea for this song by what seemed like a thousand writers and no one really seemed to understand what I was looking for. On the day that Bob Doyle, my co-manager, introduced me to Kent Blazy, I passed this idea by Kent and he had the first verse down within fifteen seconds. I could tell he just felt it. Kent Blazy is a wonderful man, full of love and energy, and if we never write again, I hope that we are always friends first”.
“If Tomorrow Never Comes” and Its Message
Produced by Allen Reynolds and penned by Brooks and Kent Blazy, the song tells the story of a man who loves his woman deeply. In addition, he hopes that she knows the depth of his affection.
This song not only teaches us how to love deeply but also reminds us how to express what we feel before it is too late to say it as we might not have that chance again.
