Garth Brooks has opened up about his marriage and admitted that he was not the best spouse or father.
In a recent interview, the country singer reflected on his relationship with his family and said that he was aware he needed to make changes.
“I was terrible at being a husband, and I was terrible at being a father.” Brooks told Billboard, “I had to get myself together.”

Brooks remembered, “I was featured on the front page in USA Today as a bad man and husband.” I would have never made it through that if social media was around back then.
