Some know Mike Craighill as the ambassador of comfort food, a business owner whose friendly demeanor consistently leaves his customers smiling.
When a customer describes Dennis Crowder as an artist, the owner of Engraveables Grover Laser usually responds with a modest shrug.
Deciding to enter the MetraPark memories contest, I thought would be a simple task.
Our family has attended many wonderful concerts at the Metra, but none were as memorable as the Garth Brooks concert in July of 1998.
Garth Brooks made arena appearances in 1991 and 1992 and did four shows in 1998 with Trisha Yearwood.
* First show held at the Metra Arena: Holiday on Ice, Dec. 10-14, 1975.
My favorite Metra memory is in 1998 when it was announced that Garth Brooks was coming to Billings.
As I clicked my TV remote by accident to the music channels, I discovered I have become a category of music, not classic or today's country but True Country.
Most folks enjoy listening to tunes, but musicians celebrate music as if it were a first-born child. When The Gazette asked Billings musicians to select a playlist limited to 10 songs, a few refused, saying for them it was like picking a favorite child.
