The Life And Times Of Superstar Garth Brooks
His Mother Was Also A Singer
Although Garth Brooks may be one of the best-known country singers in the world, he isn’t the first person in his family to have a career in the music industry. His mother, Colleen McElroy Carroll, was signed with Capitol Records in the 1950s as a country singer.
She recorded under the name Colleen Carroll, releasing a few songs under the label and regularly performing on Ozark Jubilee. Under the encouragement of both his parents, Brooks and his five other siblings became interested in music at a young age.
