A jury has awarded Garth Brooks $1 million in his breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Integris Health System, according to the Associated Press.
On Tuesday (Jan. 25), jurors in Claremore, Okla. ruled that Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital in Yukon, Okla., has to return the $500,000 donation that Garth made to the facility in 2005. Additionally, Integris has been ordered to pay another $500,000 in punitive damages.
"I no longer feel like I'm crazy," the country superstar said following the verdict, calling the jurors "heroes" for ruling that Integras was in breach of contact and committed fraud with malice intent and reckless disregard.

Lady A is featured in the Travel Guide's music guide, which gives prospective travelers info on the group's Georgia heritage:
"Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum were raised in Columbia County in east central Georgia. The county recently honored the country supergroup by naming its new performance venue the Lady Antebellum Pavilion & Josh Kelley Stage."
"Nearby Augusta dubbed a street near the James Brown Arena Lady Antebellum Way," it adds.
