Garth Brooks talks about raising daughters the way he was raised

01/20/2008 at 08:15 PM ET

When Garth Brooks retired from the country music scene in 2001 to become a full-time dad in the wake of his divorce from ex-wife Sandy, it wasn’t just lip service.  Although he’s dabbled in the music industry off-and-on since then, he says that his focus remains on parenting daughters Taylor Mayne Pearl, 15, August Anna, 13, and Allie Colleen, 11.

I remember not knowing my children, and I never want to go back there. I want my kids to be raised the way I was raised. My parents were at every game, whether I played or not. You’d look over your shoulder and there they were.

Garth, 45, is now married to country singer Trisha Yearwood.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
