Garth Brooks is set to receive the “Billboard” Icon Award at tonight’s Billboard Music Awards, and in a new cover story for the magazine he reflects on his career.
While Garth has had a ton of success over the years, he did seem to flop with his 1999 release, “Garth Brooks in … The Life of Chris Gaines,” that was supposed to be a soundtrack to a movie on the character, although that never happened. And while that may be a blemish on his career, Garth isn’t actually ready to give up on Chris Gaines altogether.
“Trust me, it’s got a whole life of its own and it’s all coming,” Garth tells the mag when asked if he’s thinking about bringing back his alter ego. “It won’t be anything predictable, I can guarantee you, because that’s kind of what that character’s thought process was.” He wouldn’t go into details about what he has planned, although he noted, “If you know the greatest hits, they had to come from somewhere, if that tells you what’s coming.”
