He must have legions of devoted fans.

Most of the other's with similar numbers have been around for much longer. I knew he was popular...I just didn't think he was that popular.

i knew he was, only because i've known people over the years who were huge garth fans. to compare (i know, this is blasphemy, even for me) he's had like ten all that you can't leave behinds.

and to think this is even with him being in retirement, so most of the rest of the list has had time to play catch up!
