Well, well, well… Garth is back. The new special Wal-Mart box set has been announced. Pretty cool for sure.
The details. 1 new CD with 11 songs.. wow! I was expecting maybe 4, but 11… awesome. 1 DVD, 90 minutes. Great.
Now, also included is “Scarecrow,” “Sevens,” and the “Double Live” 2-CD set, with yes, you guessed it, even more album covers. Um, can someone explain the reason for this? Why were these 2 CDs picked? Sure, I understand the Double Live CD (greatest hits type album)… great pick, but why not pick his very first CD?
“Sevens” American Music Awards—Favorite Album/Country—1998, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and Country Albums charts, and topped the Billboard 200 for 7 weeks and the Country Albums chart for 13 weeks.
“Scarecrow” Debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and Country Albums charts, the highest selling debut week for a country album since the release of Garth Brooks' Double Live in 1998 and was among the 10 best selling country albums of 2001.
I would have picked his self titled album. Bring this deal full circle.
The best part of this deal is the price. $25. Very nice for all fans to be able to enjoy his music.
Overall, I am so excited about this project. It should be just as exciting to watch its success.
I don’t believe Garth is done with surprises. I don’t believe the man can keep him out of the Wal-Mart stores in special appearances to support the package, like it needs any help.
