The vast majority of his albums during his peak on Creator/CapitolRecords drew from the same pool of session musicians (Bruce Bouton, Mark Casstevens, Mike Chapman, Rob Hajacos, Chris Leuzinger, Milton Sledge, and Bobby Wood), longtime producer Allen Reynolds, and longtime sound engineer Mark Miller[[note]]not the lead singer of Sawyer Brown[[/note]], collectively known as the "G-Men". Recurring writers such as Pat Alger, Tony Arata, Kim Williams, Victoria Shaw, and Kent Blazy shaped some of his biggest hits, although he was no slouch to writing his own material or covering obscurities from others. His most famous songs range from slick ballads ("The Dance", "Unanswered Prayers", "What She's Doing Now", "The River") to large anthemic songs ("Friends in Low Places", "Shameless", "More than a Memory"), with various other styles in between.



For most of the 21st century, he has been in semi-retirement with his wife, fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood, and his daughters from his first wife. In November 2009, he announced that he would un-retire ''yet again'' to do a show in Vegas.

* GhostStory: "The Beaches of Cheyenne", although WordOfGod is that it wasn't originally intended to be one.

* GhostStory: "The Beaches of Cheyenne", although WordOfGod is that it wasn't originally intended to be one. In fact, he claims it was supposed to be about a businessman dreaming of being a rodeo rider, but a bit of PronounTrouble changed its direction completely.

Brooks came out of retirement again in late 2013 for a concert in Las Vegas. The concert was included as part of a box set that also comprised four discs' worth of cover songs. He then announced a full comeback in 2014, with a studio album for Creator/RCARecords, ''Man Against Machine'', and a full tour with Yearwood as the opening act. The first single released from the album was "People Loving People". The album, Man Against Machine, was released in November 2014 and was certified Platinum in less than two months.
