Garth Brooks


Garth Brooks took a hiatus from being "The World's Greatest Entertainer" 13 years ago, choosing instead to slog it out among the carpools and PTA meetings as a stay-at-home dad to his three girls. Shirking fame for fatherhood definitely earns him major points for quality parenting. Now that his youngest has turned 18, he returned to the road in 2014 with a world tour.
