PEARL RECORDS artist GARTH BROOKS has made his TARGET-exclusive 10-disc boxed set, "GARTH BROOKS: The Ultimate Collection" available for pre-order online beginning TODAY (10/24). Shoppers can pre-order the box, which includes a copy of BROOKS' forthcoming studio album, "Gunslinger," and bundle it with BROOKS' holiday duets album with wife TRISHA YEARWOOD, "CHRISTMAS Together," for $29.99 ahead of its FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11th street date, bringing the pre-order package to 11 discs in total.
The collection will consist of 18 previously unreleased tracks, including the fabled "Friends In Low Places" 25th anniversary cut, which features special guests GEORGE STRAIT, JASON ALDEAN, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, and KEITH URBAN. The ten discs are categorized as follows: "Old School," "Midnight Fire," "Cowboys," "The Road (Disc One)," "The Road (Disc Two)," "Anthems," "The Covers," "RPMs," "Turn It Up," and "Gunslinger." "The TARGET boxed set IS the ultimate collection," said BROOKS. "Ten discs, previously unreleased tracks, and never before audio releases of some of the biggest moments in GARTH music history, makes me love this collection. For example, the 25th anniversary edition of 'Friends In Low Places' with GEORGE STRAIT, JASON ALDEAN, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, and KEITH URBAN is only available in this box and will be gone when the boxes are gone. I applaud TARGET for making so much music available at such an incredible value. TARGET has made this boxed set the gift to give and receive this holiday season."
BROOKS is celebrating all WEEK, having added another show to his DECEMBER slate at PEARL HARBOR (NET NEWS 10/12).
