“Oh My God, I Love Me” – Garth Brooks On Listening To His Own Music & Loving Every Second Of It

Sometimes you have to be your own biggest fan.

Garth Brooks wasn’t afraid to say that when he was a guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show during his most recent appearance . Come to think of it, I don’t know if there’s really anything that Garth would be scared to do. The man oozes confidence, and though it might be a weird confidence, it’s confidence nonetheless.

The portion of the show that featured Brooks covered a lot of ground, and even featured a special segment called “Gratitude with Garth.” Make sure to bookmark that idea and bring it back into play while all of your family is sitting around the Thanksgiving dinner table.

There was even time to talk about Garth’s third limited series box set, which if you remember, was sold exclusively at Bass Pro Shop. Brooks talked about how the set of older music was a “perfect Christmas gift,” and that it gave fans a chance to catch up on past songs.

And when he brought up some of his older tracks, Kelly Clarkson jumped in to ask if Garth likes to listen to some of his stuff from the 1990s and 2000s. That question from Clarkson unlocked an incredible answer from Brooks:

“Oh my God, I love me.”

Well there you go. We already knew that Garth preferred to listen to his wife Trisha Yearwood’s music to set the mood in the bedroom, and know we also know that the “Friends In Low Places” singer probably belts out his own hits just like the rest of us do.

Garth backtracked a bit after that excited answer slipped out, saying:

“I can’t believe I just said that. I’m getting way too comfortable around you…

Maybe guys are luckier than girls because girls are always harder on themselves. But guys kind of keep it conversational, right? So you can listen to the old stuff, and the old stuff isn’t singing as much as it’s ‘Just tell me the story.'”

That’s a total Garth thing to say, mainly because it’s somewhat confusing and only he really knows what exactly he meant when he said it.

You can hear more from Garth and how he loves his own music (nothing wrong with that) in the interview below:
