There are several prominent men named Stephen Bishop:. He was the first to do this since Elton John in 1975. Garth had 3 albums at the top of the Billboard pop charts at the same time in 1998 (Sevens, The Limited Series, and Double Live). It is estimated that over 1 million people showed for the live concert and 14.6 million saw it live on HBO. Garth had the largest crowd to ever attend a concert in Central Park on August 7, 1997.
This was also the record for any one week sales period for any genre artist in history. Double Live set the all-time record for first week sales 1,085,373 copies. Double Live is the best-selling live album of music history. Garth Brooks was the first artist to debut a live album at number one on two charts (Double Live).
Every Rosemont Horizon (now Allstate Arena) record was broken by Garth when he sold over 140,000 concert tickets in 1997 alone. Fresh Horses made history as the first album to have 8 out of 10 tracks on the country singles charts at the same time. Capitol Records shipped 5 million copies of The Chase which, at the time, was the largest initial shipment in music history. Garth Brooks holds the record as having the first seven country albums to debut at number one on both the Billboard Pop charts and country charts:.
Garth Brooks has participated in spring training for the San Diego Padres in 1998 and 1999; the New York Mets in 2000, and is currently in spring training with the Kansas City Royals as of March 12, 2004 to promote his Foundation. The foundation enlists players to donate a predetermined sum of money depending on their game performance. In 1999, Garth Brooks began the Teammates For Kids Foundation which provides financial aid to charities for children. The organization breaks down into three categories spanning three different sports. He attended Oklahoma State University on a track scholarship as a javelin thrower.
He created a fictional character Chris Gaines whose album only sold a little over 2 million copies; acceptable to most artists but a disappointment compared to Garth's selling record. He has also achieved 22 #1 hit songs during a career which began in the 1980's. Most of which have enjoyed #1 status. Brooks has placed a total of 14 albums in the Billboard Pop and Country Charts between 1989 and 2002.
He was awarded the Academy of Country Music award for Entertainer of the Year for 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993, and the award for Top Male Vocalist for 1990 and 1991.
