Garth Brooks in Baltimore

It was pretty clear to me when I first heard Garth Brooks that he was going to be popular. He has a great sound that isn’t weird with lyrics most people can understand. He is the country equivalent of Billy Joel and has a similar trail. That is why it isn’t surprising to hear that he is coming to Baltimore to perform in early October.

It sounds like a good show. I listened to his “FUN” song a few minutes ago and it has an upbeat tone to it. Maybe a little too upbeat. It sounds almost like he is trying to hard to be upbeat and energetic and is losing a bit of the depth I felt in his earlier recordings. It must be challenging to create a studio album and try to be energetic when sitting in the studio all day. I has obviously led to a someone artificial sound but his voice is still great.

Baltimore has a wide range of music fans and while I initially wouldn’t have said that there were enough Billie Joel fans to fill a stadium, I was wrong. I’m sure there will be enough Garth Brooks fans also. The concert is the week of my birthday so that might be the thing to do.
