GARTH BROOKS The good deed: Saved two boys from an Oklahoma wildfire He's sung about "Standing Outside the Fire," but country star Garth Brooks actually went inside the flames of a raging, 600-acre Oklahoma wildfire in 2000 to save two boys and a neighboring family from the oncoming blaze, ferrying them to safety in his pickup truck. One of his evacuees reportedly told the 14- and 10-year-old brothers afterwards, "You just got saved by Garth Brooks."
We Shall Be Free - A powerful song by Garth Brooks, inspired by raging world intolerance, became an Academy of Country Music award-winning video. Featuring an impressive cast of celebrities and newsmakers, co-produced by Garth Brooks and Tim Miller, and directed by Tim Miller.
Oklahoma boy! Garth Brooks is the biggest selling solo artist of all-time with album sales approaching 100 million units worldwide. Had he sold all his albums in the United States it would mean that roughly 1 in 3 Americans would have one of Garth's albums!
