Garth Brooks makes new friends in high places

Garth Brooks may be famous for his friends in low places, but this past Sunday he got to mingle with some new friends in high places. Garth, along with Alan Jackson, John Bettis, Thom Schuyler and Allen Shamblin, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Grand Ballroom of Nashville's own Renaissance Hotel. Watching the ceremony, I was surprised to learn from Garth's producer, Allen Reynolds, that Garth always insisted on listening to and recording songs written by others when compiling his albums (Hey Garth - if you ever do another album, keep us in mind!) It was also touching to see many of Garth's collaborators perform a few bars of the songs he made famous and to hear how his recording of their songs changed theire lives. It was a touching and inspiring ceremony and one that I hope gives encouragement to all my friends pursuing their musical dreams. Maybe one day...
