Garth Brooks net worth is currently estimated at $150 million dollars.
Garth was born in Oklahoma, in 1962. He was the second child in the family of Troyal Raymond Brooks and Colleen Carroll. His mother was a talented country singer, popular during the 1950s. Although she had a contract with Capitol Records, her albums were not commercially successful and her singing career never brought her fortunes similar to Garth Brooks net worth. Both of his parents had been married before they met each other, thus Garth had three older half-brothers and a half-sister, named Betsy.
In 1984 he graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor degree in advertising. His professional career started the same year, as Brooks started performing in local clubs. In one of such concerts Brooks was noticed by entertainment attorney named Rod Phelps. Phelps was impressed with his voice, unique style of music, and offered Garth to help him build his career. The only thing he required was that Garth moved to Nashville, where Phelps had many contacts. It took a couple of years before Brooks finally decided to make this move; judging from the current Garth Brooks net worth- the best move he has ever made.
By the time Brooks moved to Nashville in 1987, he was already married to his college sweetheart, Sandy Mahl. Soon Sandy gave birth to their three daughters: Taylor, August and Allie. His first album was released in 1989 and became an instant commercial success. It featured such hits as „Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)“, “Not Counting You”, “If Tomorrow Never Comes” and “The Dance”. Eventually this album sold over 10 million copies in the United States and was certified 10x Platinum by Recording Industries Association of America. The profits from this album are responsible for the good bulk of Garth Brooks net worth. During the decade after his debut Brooks sold more albums than any other pop singer and attracted the greater live audiences than any other country music artist did. Since the day his first album reached the stores brooks has sold over 70 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists in the United States of all-time.
