    None of these Garth Brooks videos on this site are actually him. They are all amateur covers. I know this isn't the fault of those who posted it, because it is essentially impossible to post actual Garth Brooks videos online, because of the artist's well known fanaticism about keeping his content from the digital world. But people should at least know what they're listening to.

    People think of their ex's like they are the plague! This song reminds me that my ex was part of my life. We had children so if I missed this dance they would not be here, and I am forever grateful for that!
