GARTH ENJOYING RETIREMENT

What's Garth Brooks' latest incarnation? Soccer Dad. The reluctant superstar told the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, "I'm retired. I feel like I say no to people 150 times a day. I'm with my children, though, and that's where my love and my heart are." Garth stressed that the low-key life suits him just fine. "Every day I take my daughters to school and pick them up," he said. "I'm proud of knowing what they like to eat and who their friends are...what they like to wear. I wore sunglasses to the first soccer game where I was just 'Taylor's dad,' and I cried." Garth added that he's put down his songwriting pen for the moment, and he only plays guitar for fun. "It's back to the other side for me," he said, "just listening to country music on the radio."
