There’s a big story circulating on the internet that Garth Brooks died this morning in Turks and Caicos in a jet-ski accident. It’s got fans worked up into a frenzy. Is it true?

It is 100% NOT TRUE!!!  Everyone can breath a sigh of release! Whew!

A concerned listener called this morning worried that it was true.  After a little digging around the truth was found.

As realistic and credible as the article appears, there’s a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen that states: about this web site. FAKE… THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes! this story was dynamically generated using a generic ‘template’ and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank ‘non-specific’ template for the purpose of entertainment.

So, if you hear any rumors around the office today that Garth died, you can set them straight.  In fact, Garth is alive and well and rumored to be in Canada.

Here’s the bogus article.
