Garth Brooks watched controversial Whitney Houston documentary for lessons in what not to do while making his own
Country star Garth Brooks has revealed that last year's documentary on Whitney Houston, 'Whitney, was a major reference point for him while making his own biographical documentary. Citing the controversial documentary, Brooks said it was the perfect example of what not to do.
As reported by Page Six, while at the launch party in NYC for his documentary 'The Road I'm On', he said, "I love Whitney Houston, and when you see her documentary, a lot of the subtitles say ‘historian’ or ‘expert.’ But did they even know her?"
In it, “everybody they … talk to was standing right there the moment it happened.”
The documentary by Oscar winning Kevin MacDonald garnered quite a bit of controversy by covering the abuse the singer had suffered as a child.
Recently Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood were seen at a celebration of his upcoming A&E documentary in NYC. The 57-year-old was seen sporting his black cowboy hat and a grey striped jacket. He also sported a pair of brown cowboy boots as he arrived at The Bowery Hotel.
His 55-year-old wife was seen in a long black ribbed dress along with a short black jacket. The couple has been married since 2005. Brooks has three daughters from his previous marriage to Sandy Mahl.
'Garth Brooks: The Road I'm On' will be releasing its two-part premiere on December 2 and 3 on the A&E network. The documentary highlights the career of the best selling solo artist of all time. It will also look at Brook's life from his early days from playing in college bars in Oklahoma to his world tours.
The documentary will also feature an exclusive interview with Brooks who will be sharing his life story for the first time. There will also be never-seen-before videos and interviews with his wife Trisha amongst several others such as Bill Joel, Keith Urban, George Strait, James Taylor and more.
Brooks has been able to sell more than 148 million albums and was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2011. He then became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2012.
