In addition to his show at the Wynn Las Vegas, Garth's 1990 song "Unanswered Prayers"—about the mix of emotions felt after running into an old girlfriend at a high school football game—has been made into a movie for the Lifetime channel.

Garth says while other producers have wanted to make movies based on his songs, this was the first time he agreed to a project. "Tanya Lopez at Lifetime came to me and said, 'Look, we don't want to mess with the song,'" he says. "'We just want to make a movie about the song. We feel like it touches people.'"

After seeing the final version, Garth says he was moved to tears. "I cry at commercials, so that's not a glum review," he says. "I liked it. They stayed true to the song."
