I’ve been a big fan of Garth Brooks for as long as I can remember. Hell, people used to call me Garth after my dubious flirtation with a wireless headset microphone in high school. I’ve been quite excited to hear his version of the Mike McClure song, "I’d Rather Have Nothing", which he put on his Lost Sessions CD included in his new Wal Mart boxed set. Ty England had previously covered it and ruined it by rewriting it, so I knew there was a chance that Garth wouldn’t stay true to the song. My suspicions were sadly confirmed. First, it was one of McClure’s weaker songs, and after what Garth did to it, I wouldn’t even claim it if I were Mike. I’d claim the check, though.
