Brooks' Lucky Charm
Country star Garth Brooks has carried around three lucky seeds for 18 years, after they helped him triumph at an award ceremony. The singer won six prizes at the 1990 Association of Country Music Awards, and he is convinced the lucky buckeye seeds handed to him by a fan the day before are responsible. And he is so superstitious he now takes taken everywhere. Brooks says, "A guy in Ohio gave me three buckeyes. He said, 'These are lucky, hang onto them.' The next night we flew out here to the ACMs and that night we were lucky enough to walk away with six of them. "I have kept them with me."
