Selfless Garth Brooks celebrated his 50th birthday on Tuesday (07Feb12) by giving back to his longtime producer and renaming a music studio in his honour.
The country star celebrated the milestone during a party at his Tennessee recording studio Jack's Tracks, where he unveiled a plaque honouring longtime collaborator Allen Reynolds.
The studio will now be known as Allentown Studios.
Brooks tells The Tennessean newspaper, "It’s a really emotional day for me. My wife (singer Trisha Yearwood) said, 'It’s your 50th. Dream as big as you want.' And I couldn’t find anything in my heart that I wanted to do more than to see this guy get a little bit of what’s due."
And shocked Reynolds was delighted by the tribute, adding, "It feels great. It feels better to see all of the people that were here today. It’ll be a hard habit for me to break to stop calling it Jack’s Tracks. It’s a joy to me that he bought it and has kept it a musical place, because you never know, it could have been blown down like the place across the street, and (turned into) apartments."
The studio has been used to record all but one of Brook's albums, as well as records by How Do I Love hitmaker Yearwood, Crystal Gayle, and Kathy Mattea.
