There are few musicians who can claim to stand on equal terms with Garth Brooks. The best-selling American solo artist of all time has built quite a career for himself through hard work and more than a little luck and now he's telling his story in the latest 'Biography' documentary, 'Garth Brooks: The Road I'm On'.

Filmed during Brooks' record-breaking 'Stadium Tour', the two-part documentary provides an intimate look into the life of Garth Brooks, the people who influenced him and the songs that made him who he is today. It's an epic tale from Oklahoma to Tennessee, from a happy childhood to a difficult youth to finding fame as one of country music's biggest stars.

In all honesty, 'The Road I'm On' feels more like a conversation than a documentary and that really works in its favor. It helps that Brooks has had a pretty eventful life. From his first love to his first disappointments to his first big break, it hasn't been an easy road for country music's favorite son and Brooks recounts the story of his life with a very down-to-earth attitude and all the sincerity he can muster. 

The documentary also features exclusive never-before-seen interviews with Brooks' current wife Trisha Yearwood, friend and original bandmate Ty England, songwriter Tony Arata as well as many others from Brooks’ personal and musical family, not to mention other legendary artists like Billy Joel, Keith Urban, George Strait, James Taylor. 

If you're a fan of Brooks' music, this right here is the holy grail. If you're just a casual listener, this might just get you listening a whole lot more. And if you're one of those rare souls who think country music and Garth Brooks are not your style... well, 'The Road I'm On' might just change your mind.

Part 1 of 'Garth Brooks: The Road I'm On' will air on A&E on December 2 at 9 pm ET with Part 2 airing the very next day at the same time.
