Accidental diplomat: how Garth's guys made me mediator in five-show fiasco
Garth Brooks gives bear hugs. Standing in a music hall in Nashville and talking to a singer who has left Ireland in a political deadlock, I say to him: "I think you'll get the five nights."
"I hope so," he answers as he squeezes me tight for a photo. He stops short and asks me: "Do you think so? Do you really think we will?"
I explain that I am in no way a politician but the will and sentiment is there.
