Garth Brooks Inducted Into the Country Music Hall of Fame [VIDEO]

Well, this makes me feel old. Of course, the honor is richly deserved. It’s just that I remember playing his debut single “Much Too Young” for the first time in 1989, and now Garth Brooks is an official member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

And wasn’t that induction just a matter of time? Wonder when it hit us that this guy was a Hall of Famer in waiting? Could it have been the one-two punch of monster hits “The Dance” and “Friends in Low Places” that have become timeless country classics? I mean, nobody does that, right? Release back-to-back singles that become standards?

Maybe it was when he started headlining concert tours and we were seeing not just a country star but a megawatt full-blown out-of-his-head superstar flying through the audiences on whatever was available to grab onto.

Or it could be album sales in excess of 128 million copies–third all-time behind no less than the Beatles and Elvis. More than likely, it’s a combination of all of those things. And you could throw in a lot more, I suppose.

I’ve seen Garth five times in concert. Nobody does it like Garth.

Nobody.

A Hall of Famer in every sense of the word.
