Garth Brooks recently returned to Ireland for a highly-anticipated series of sold-out concerts, and did so showing off his significant weight loss.
Garth Books underwent some big health changes to prepare for his return to Ireland’s Croke Park, including weight loss totaling 50 pounds.
Garth Brooks wasn’t named CMA Entertainer of the Year seven times for nothing. The multi-platinum selling country star puts on concerts more energizing than those of artists half his age.
In preparation for his return to Dublin’s Croke Park, the 60-year-old made some major changes to his health so he could put on a show that his Irish fans have waited 25 years to see.
Speaking to the media ahead of opening night, Brooks shared what inspired his decision to get back in shape.
“What happened was, weirdly, at the 25th anniversary of Croke Park and Central Park, and I was sitting there looking at it thinking everyone looks the same… what is wrong with your fat ass, here we go,” Garth said.
The “Callin’ Baton Rouge” singer said that it has taken him eight years to get back to “the artist feel” after spending 16 years as a soccer dad.
“And I’m the same weight I was when we played here in 97, that’s what I want,” said Brooks.
