Abstract

Garth Brooks is America's greatest selling solo artist of all time. His unprecedented impact on country music transferred to Ireland, but with both positive and negative outcomes. Sure, he wrote a song titled Ireland and released it on a multi-million selling album, but Brooks also caused a fiasco that prompted public protests, Oireachtas Committee hearings and changes to government legislation.
