    GARTH BROOKS – THE ULTIMATE HITS

    3 CD set (2 x CDs and 1 x DVD)
    34 tracks (includes 3 new songs and a bonus track)
    33 music videos

    Released November 10  2007
    Garth Brooks’ body of work propelled country music as a genre to the front pages of newspapers worldwide and the covers of magazines, to the point where Forbes declared on its cover, "Country Conquers Rock." And, he accomplished it without courting pop radio. Garth’s attitude was – let the pop audiences come to country.

    Assessing his career, the UK’s Country Music International determined that, “Garth Brooks has taken country music further than any other performer. He has reached the widest possible audience, gained phenomenal success, yet still retained the basic ingredients of country music. There is no compromise.”

    November 2007 will mark the release of Garth’s newest project, The Ultimate Hits. The Ultimate Hits is just that—a collection of Garth’s career blockbusters. The three-disc set is a combination of two CD’s and one DVD. The CD’s and the music boast of his familiar and popular ballads, such as “The Dance,” “To Make You Feel My Love” and “The Thunder Rolls,” as well as his new single, “More Than A Memory,” which tells of heartache and pain in a way only Garth can convey. With the release of this new single and its phenomenal radio success, Garth has become the first artist in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart, making him the highest Country debut leader of all time. The Hits also contains the upbeat classics, “Friends In Low Places” and “Ain’t Goin’ Down,” along with the new favorite “Workin’ For A Livin’” with Huey Lewis. Other new cuts include the carousing song “Midnight Sun” and the moving and beautifully-performed bonus track “Leave A Light On.” The DVD completes the package with 33 music videos, most of which have never been seen before. After you experience this 3-disc collection, you will have the complete picture of who Garth Brooks is--the songwriter, the artist, the entertainer.

    The recording debut, Garth Brooks, was released on April 12, 1989 contained the hit singles including "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)," "If Tomorrow Never Comes" and his signature song, "The Dance”.. Garth Brooks went on to become the biggest selling country album of the 1980s.

    Garth's second release, 1990's groundbreaking No Fences, became the biggest-selling country album at the time, and has been recently certified for sales in excess of 16 million. The album contained four No. 1 hits: "Friends in Low Places," "Unanswered Prayers," "Two of a Kind (Workin' On A Full House)," and "The Thunder Rolls."

    The overwhelming success of No Fences set the stage for 1991's Ropin' The Wind to become the first album in history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and Country Albums chart. Ropin' The Wind, which earned Garth a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1992 as well as CMA Album of the Year honors, had five hit singles: "Rodeo," "Shameless," "What She's Doing Now," "Papa Loved Mama" and "The River." By the end of 1991 Garth's overall record sales accounted for one fourth of country music's year-end sales.



    The overwhelming success of No Fences set the stage for 1991's Ropin' The Wind to become the first album in history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and Country Albums chart. Garth called 1992's studio album, The Chase, became the second album in history to debut at No. 1 in Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and Country Albums chart.

    High-energy In Pieces became the third album to enter Billboard's Top 200 and Country Albums charts at No. 1 when it was released in 1993. The album produced the hits: "Ain't Going Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)," "American Honky Tonk Bar Association," "Standing Outside the Fire," and "Callin' Baton Rouge."

    Garth's next studio album, Fresh Horses, was released in November 1995. Refreshing and diverse, the project reflected the success of his road show, which covered the ground from the western side of country, to insightful relationship reflections, to full-tilt boogie country rock and roll. Singles included: "She's Every Woman," "The Beaches of Cheyenne," "It's Midnight Cinderella," "That Ol' Wind" and his version of the Aerosmith song "The Fever."

    In March of 1996 Garth launched a record-breaking, three-year concert tour, playing 350 shows in 100 cities, selling over 5.3 million tickets. He sold out practically every show on the tour, playing multiple shows in each city and consistently breaking venue attendance records set by the likes of Elvis Presley, The Grateful Dead, Elton John, and Neil Diamond. Amusement Business called it the top country music tour of all time, and likely the biggest arena tour ever.

    Garth appropriately titled his 1997 seventh studio album Sevens, another release that debuted at the top of Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and Country Albums chart. Hits included “Longneck Bottle”, "In Another's Eyes," the duet with Trisha Yearwood, "She's Gonna Make It," "Two Pina Coladas," "You Move Me" and "Do What You Gotta Do."

    Double Live, released in November 1998, featured 25 cuts and over 100 minutes of music. It became the best-selling live album in music history.



    His final studio album for Capitol, Scarecrow was released on November 13, 2001, and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Country Albums charts with first week sales of 465,523. This marked the 7th time he debuted at #1 on the Top 200 chart (more times than any other artist)
