GARTH BROOKS. 

WHEN THE THUNDER ROLLS.

FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES. 

HELLO MURRAY STATE!! (My alma mater - don't laugh people. Racers Racers-YEE HAW! lol My memory always returns to college when I think about Garth!)

Yeah, so what does my mom and Garth Brooks have in common?  A whole heck of a lot!  For one...

Garth is Country.  My mom is COUNTRY. (Born and raised in Kentucky, she was.  She says ya'all, fixin and it ain't done it well! ha)  Garth is from Oklahoma - but we won't hold that against him.  =)

But also, a song.  One called 'Mom'. 

For a man who has made his mark in music on a big scale, Garth Brooks will forever be a family name in our house.  Obviously with selling over 134 million albums-he's a family name in many houses!  In my radio days - my first job was for a country station in Kentucky.  I remember getting to go to a concert with my mom and how excited she was to see the show.  I took my mom to check out LeeAnn Womack.  It was in 2000 when I Hope You Dance rocked the charts.  I remember it just like it was yesterday. It was really my moms first concert and she was so cute about it!  She said to LeeAnn 'next time you're in St. Louis - come over for biscuits and gravy!'  And of course LeeAnn knew my moms name and called her Ida. 

It was awesome. 

Everything about that experience with my mom was just dreamy. It was a time in my life when my college boyfriend dumped me so my mama being around was all I cared about!  She came and visited me often that year.  It really warms my heart thinking about it.  This was actually the first and ONLY concert my mom has ever been to.  Wouldn't it be great to take her to see & meet Garth?  Hmmmm. 

In fact.  What I wouldn't do to take my mom backstage to meet Garth in CONCERT!!!  Yep, for a man who has said he retired-he sure returns a lot! ha. Brilliant biz move on his end.  But yes, Garth has a new album with an AWESOME new single called "MOM"!  The album drop goes hand in hand with his partnership with GhostTunes, a new music site.  AND HE'S TOURING AGAIN!  

In case you didn't know, Garth is the highest profile artist to hold out on the digital music scene.  He's actually been asked if he thought todays generation would even listen to his music and know what it's like to experience Garth live.  I guess you can say he's got a great attitude about it all because he is calling it the 'Official Wheelchair & Walker Tour'. ha

Ok, back to the MOM part.  So, his new single "Mom" has such a beautiful story to it.  And in honor of his new single  - he's doing a cool concert with YOUR MOM!!  Huh?  Yeah!  Well sort of.  MAYBE!  You could be enjoying a concert with YOUR MOM! 

He's giving away one lucky winner and their mom an experience to travel to a Garth Show!  In celebration of Garth Brooks brand new single, he's partnered with GhostTunes and one lucky mom and guest will win the opportunity to see Garth in concert complete with hotel and airfare!  

So share, sign up, register, scream from the mountain tops and above all SIGN UP FOR GHOSTTUNES  AND DOWNLOAD HIS ALBUM TO ENJOY MOM!
