Garth Brooks is known as one of the nicest singers in Country Music. Through the years, he has always put his fans first, and has always given back. Garth is also an exceptional role model!  At age 49, the best selling solo artist in history went back to school and got his Master's degree!

This was not an honorary award, Garth actually studied and worked hard to earn the diploma. The 'Friends in Low Places' singer already holds a Bachelor's Degree in advertising from Oklahoma State University. As you can imagine, the graduating class was in shock to see the celebrity adult returning student, in attendance at graduation, as he kept his studies a secret.

Even in his "retirement" Garth has raised over 3.5 million dollars for the Nashville flood victims and continues to raise money for children's programs through his "Teammates For Kids" foundation. If half of the celebrities in the entertainment industry would follow in Garth's footsteps, imagine how many people and causes would benefit?
