“The Ultimate Hits” Also Re-Entered The Charts, Marking Brooks’ 4th Album In The Top 10
Nashville, TN – Dec. 5, 2016 – Garth Brooks has an unrivaled hold on the Top 10 Country Album Chart, as his recently released THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION, CHRISTMAS TOGETHER and GUNSLINGER (Pearl Records, Inc.) were the top 3 best-selling albums respectively on BuzzAngle this
week, while THE ULTIMATE HITS made a re-entry at No. 10, marking
Brooks’ 4th album in the Top 10.  The achievement is befitting of an
artist who continues to break his own milestones, Brooks previously held
the Top 3 album spots with ROPIN’ THE WIND, NO FENCES and GARTH BROOKS
respectively in 1992. Critics have been quick to praise Brooks’ “strong
new album” (New York Times) GUNSLINGER, with The Guardian highlighting
that on the “impressive new album… [Brooks] made sure the 10 songs
stand tall inside his classic catalog of hits.” 
Fans were
able to experience GUNSLINGER ahead of its national release, as it was
included on GARTH BROOKS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION which debuted as the
No. one best-selling album sold solely through Target. Brooks is also
currently undertaking a stacked holiday season of national TV
appearances in support of his first collaborative album with Trisha
Yearwood, CHRISTMAS TOGETHER. The festive collection debuted at No. one
on Billboard’s Top Country albums chart and will see the pair take part
in The National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Dec. 5th (Hallmark Channel), stop by Live With Kelly on Dec. 21 on ABC at 9am CT, Good Morning America on Dec. 23 on ABC and The Disney Parks’ Magical Christmas Celebration (ABC) on Christmas Day at 9am ET.  Brooks will also perform in tribute to James Taylor on The Kennedy Center Honors airing on CBS on Dec. 27.
Brooks just won Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards for a fifth
time, a first for any artist. He is also the first artist in history to
receive 7 Diamond awards for the now seven albums certified by the RIAA
at over 10 million album sales each and remains the #1-selling solo
artist in U.S. history certified by the RIAA with over 138 million album
sales. He has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow
on an artist. Garth has been inducted into the International
Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of
Fame, Country Music Hall of Fame and most recently, the Musicians Hall
of Fame. Garth is currently on the three year Garth Brooks World Tour
