Superfan wins Garth Brooks rodeo tickets

HOUSTON – "It's a success. I got my tickets," said Garth Brooks superfan Tina McArthur Kratzer.

She got into the virtual waiting room at 9:30 a.m.

At 10 a.m. Garth Brooks Rodeo tickets went on sale, and Kratzer was randomly picked to buy her tickets.

"Oh, my goodness. Thank God. I'm confirming my purchase right now," Kratzer said.

Kratzer has been a Garth Brooks fan most of her life; she has everything Garth Brooks.

From books to T-shirts and sweatshirts even her email is an ode to the country crooner.

She has been to several of his concerts and says it's his music that keeps her coming back.

And now she gets to go see him again.

"Bouncing off the walls even though it seems like I'm very calm. I will be making a bunch of calls in the next half-hour talking to a bunch of people saying, 'I'm going, I'm going, I'm going,'" Kratzer said.

Tickets cost $18 plus a $4 processing fee.
