Rumors have swirled for years that Garth Brooks is pretty good with a shovel…
That’s not my accusation, just a theory that was floated online which matched up a lot of missing persons with Garth Brooks tour stops and made mega popular by comedian Tom Segura.
You can read all about the serial killer theory here, but things have certainly gotten a bit more intense as of late with G blocking Tom and (allegedly) showing the horrible video of Tom tearing his knee and breaking his arm simultaneously while trying to dunk on an 8 foot hoop.
He spoke of this on fellow comedian Theo Von’s podcast recently, which you can watch below.
Well, no actual information has come out about the (alleged) bodies buried in Garth’s backyard, but I did stumble upon something pretty interesting that he did bury a few years back.
On June 30th, 1995, Garth was at the peak of his insanely successful career and was awarded with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Obviously, that’s a big achievement, especially for a country artist, but Garth being Garth couldn’t just leave it at that.
In a speech he gave that day, he said that the master tapes for The Hits was buried deep in the concrete beneath the star, pretty much ensuring that no one would ever re-release them.
The Hits was his first true compilation album and became his first ever Diamond certified record by RIAA, selling over 10 million copies in the limited time it was available. It contains pretty much all of the classic Garth songs, including “Friends In Low Places”, “Ain’t Going Down”, “The River”, “Calling Baton Rouge”, and “The Thunder Rolls”, along with 12 others that you’re very familiar with.
The saga of Garth protecting his music is well documented and you still can only find his songs on Amazon, but to go to this length to protect his masters is next level.
I wouldn’t recommend trying to dig them out though; They’re under a 300 pound star that’s located on one of the busiest streets in America.
Plus, who knows what G is capable of if he finds out you’re trying to steal his stuff…
