Troyal Garth Brooks is an American singer and songwriter. He was born on February 7, 1962 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was the youngest child of Troyal Raymond Brooks, Jr., a draftsman for an oil company, and Colleen McElroy Carroll, a 1950s-era country singer of Irish ancestry who recorded on the Capitol Records label and appeared on Ozark Jubilee. This was the second marriage for each of his parents, giving Brooks four older half-siblings; Jim, Jerry, Mike, and Betsy. His parents had two children together, Kelly and Garth.

Brooks attended Oklahoma State University–Stillwater where he starred on the track team. He later completed his MBA from Oklahoma State.

At Brooks’s home in Yukon, Oklahoma, the family hosted weekly talent nights. All of the children were required to participate, either by singing or doing skits. Brooks learned to play both the guitar and banjo.

As a child, Brooks often sang in casual family settings, but his primary focus was athletics. In high school, he played football and baseball and ran track and field. He received a track scholarship to Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, where he competed in the javelin.
