Garth Follows 8 People On Instagram And 34 On Twitter… And It’s A Weird List

You never quite know what G is really thinking.

He loves crying, he had (still kind of has) an insane alter ego, doesn’t quite get how to use social mediaand may or may not have a large number of bodies buried in his yard.

But I think the best way to understand more about a person is too look at who they follow on social media. Honestly, that’s very telling about a person, since it’s literally who they choose to see things from.

But, with Garth Brooks, it kinda made me even more confused.

Let’s do a deep dive into the extremely exclusive list:


Trisha Yearwood

Okay, this one was obvious. You’ve got to follow your wife…

James Taylor

Now, we’re getting somewhere, but the “Fire and Rain” singer’s Instagram handle is written like a website, jamestaylor_com. I get he’s not the youngest, but is no one looking out for him? Someone fix this.

Larry Fitzgerald

Larry is an absolute legend, but seems a bit out of place that Garth would choose him to be one of the select 8. The Arizona Cardinal isn’t officially retired yet, but isn’t with the team to start the season. It would be his 18th year in the league, which is almost the number of live albums Garth has released.

The ACM Awards

Why does an award ceremony even have an account?

Mike Fisher, Carrie Underwood’s Husband

Former Ottawa Senator and Nashville Predator make the exclusive club. What an honor.

Carrie Underwood

I had to list her husband first, you know the game…

Chris Pratt

Chris made a crazy jump from being the bumbling, lovable Andy Dwyer on Parks & Rec to a certified badass who tames dinosaurs and saves the world a few times a year. That time of inspiration is enough to make G shed some tears.

Mitch Rossell

Mitch is a country artist that’s been around since 2011, and while he’s had a few flashes, like his 2019 single “All I Need To See,” he hasn’t found the superstardom I had assumed it would take to become G’s protégé.

But that’s obviously not the case as he rounds up the list of those fortunate to get the ever elusive Instagram follow from Garth Brooks.


I’m not going to list all 34, since there’s a few obvious ones like the Grand Old Opry, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Trisha, etc. Instead, I’ll just pick out my favorites.

I would kill for some Garth covers of Cher songs… Think he’d wear the outfits too?

Mike Tomlin

As a massive Pittsburgh Steelers fan, I have only one thing to say… HERE WE GO!

Ashton Kutcher

Wonder if he was a fan of Punk’d?

The New York Yankees

Isn’t Garth from Oklahoma? Get outta here with this Yankees garbage…

Larry Walker

Another legendary Larry, maybe it’s the name? Either way, Walker was a stud for the Expos, Rockies and Cardinals and was just inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame.

Nancy Seltzer

Probably a very nice lady. Her profile picture is a number 13 and header is a colorful bunch of tomatoes. I love this.


Mr. Worldwide!


A mother of 3 sons in the Military, wife of a LEO, Notre Dame football fan and Garth Brooks Funatic. 126 followers including the big guy.

Justin Timberlake

One look at JT’s dance moves had Garth saying “I like that…”

Links At Brunello

A Novia Scotian golf course … Huh?

There’s no denying Garth is a country music legend, but there’s also no denying he’s a bit out there…
