Lately, Garth Brooks’ youngest daughter has been making headlines and breaking the Internet.
Following in her famous dad’s footsteps, Allie is pursuing a career in music and has started her journey by posting videos of herself singing cover songs on Facebook and YouTube.
She has caught the eye of millions of people and because she isn’t using the help of her father, who is the best selling country singer of all time, she has earned their respect even more.
Earlier this year, she covered Garth’s famous 1995 song “She’s Every Woman” and completely blew everyone away. Rare Country caught up with Garth to find out how he feels about his daughter’s music.
As far as her music goes, he’s a fan, he says, “I see her stuff. I’m going, ‘Wow, I want to hear more of whatever this person’s doing.’ I’ve got probably five or six on my list like that, and she is one of them. So, I try not to be, ‘Oh, you’re just a proud dad,’ or ‘You’re biased.’ I am, but at the same time, this little girl’s good. I enjoy her stuff.”
He’s got mixed feelings when it comes to her singing his material, though.
“When she does a Garth Brooks song, it makes me feel proud, but I also hate the fact that she does it better than I do,” he says with a laugh. “I hate that, because she’s real intelligent on the guitar as well. Real great about melody.”
The compliments go both ways. When posting her cover, Allie captioned the video, “Honestly might be the most well-written song to ever bless my life.” Her dad happened to co-write the tune with songwriter Victoria Shaw.
