I think my favorite from that list is "Good Morning Beautiful!" Love that song!

I thought "More Than a Memory" came out in the 90's sometime! I thought he sang that back when Garth was in Minneapolis on tour in the 90s when I saw him...But maybe he didnt have it on an album yet! :-) The 2000's kind of all ran together! Can't believe how much has changed since 2000, when I was a senior in high school!

Happy 2010!
