Meet Her Mother

Colleen Carol was also a well-known name in the music industry during her youthful days. Colleen who lost her life in August 1999 to throat cancer, was the mother of Garth Brooks. Brooks surely got his singing talent from his mother Colleen who was also a country singer.

She may be dead but Brooks has never stopped honouring his mother especially on mothers’ day.
