He's dedicated this song to his baby girl, Taylor, who has grown up and now he dedicates it to his brand new little girls.
“I got to dedicate this to my little girl, Taylor,” He says softly as he picks up his guitar. “And now, for the past seven or eight shows I’ve [gotten] to dedicate it to not only her but my brand new little girl, August as well.”
The song that earned Garth Brooks a record deal and country's favorite in 1991 has become a timeless, meaningful country song.

This heartfelt ballad has become so popular, that it was reperformed by Ronan Keating, who scored #1 in the UK in 2002.
This touching ballad earned Garth a recording contract and the story was shared with Bart Herbison of Nashville Songwriters Association International.
Garth's performance is truly unforgettable, as he openly expresses his emotion while singing "If Tomorrow Never Comes" in this beautiful video performance below and channels that parental love that comes with having the gift of a child. His song expresses the joy he's been given by his daughters and how thankful he is to have been blessed.
"There are a lot of great writers in Nashville and Kent Blazy and his wife Sharon, who are wonderful people, had been trying to make a living from Kent's songwriting. Kent had had some stuff recorded by Gary Morris but he hadn't had a #1. I thought we had something when we completed the song but I didn't really know it would be a hit until I heard it by chance on the radio in my truck and I knew we had something. There was something in it that moved me and I could feel the tears come to my eyes."

A decade before announcing his retirement, Garth had recorded his performance. He may be a country rebel, but he has a softer side...
"We pitched it around town for about a year and nobody was interested. We were going to get together and rewrite it, to see if we could get it better. About a week before that, he (Brooks) got a call to come to play at the Bluebird to fill in for somebody who was sick. They let him do one song, and he played 'If Tomorrow Never Comes.' Linda Schultz from Capitol Records, who passed on him for the third time that week, heard something (in that song). She said, 'Why don't you come back? Maybe we missed something.' He came in and got a record deal. It was his second single, my first #1 and his first #1."
His new goals are spending time with his new family, who clearly follow in his footsteps and are making a name for themselves in the world of music.
Keeping it in the family is one of Garth's daughters on Twitter.
There are many great writers out there and Garth was the start that was meant to be captured. His music shares emotion and passion and his fans can literally feel the love he has through the words and expression in this song. It makes us feel a sense of gratitude for our loved ones who are still here, and an appreciation of having someone to care about. It touches deep within the soul and brings out the sense of loving the life we have at this moment and living it to the fullest, as you never know what tomorrow may bring.
