Garth Brooks fans will have something to add to their Christmas list this season as the iconic singer is gearing up to release a new four-disc box set, just in time for the holidays.
Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences, a compilation album featuring a variety of cover songs, will be released November 19 exclusively at Walmart. The exciting announcement was made this past weekend during a Garth Brooks special that aired on GAC.
According to Music Universe, the collection will feature 40 songs on four discs. The covers span across all genres including, Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot. Brooks tackles classics like Jerry Lee Lewis‘ “Great Balls of Fire,” Simon & Garfunkel‘s “Mrs Robinson,” and Marvin Gaye‘s “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” (among many others).
His wife, Trisha Yearwood, also appears on the album. In addition to singing background vocals throughout the project, Yearwood sings vocals on the duet “After the Fire Is Gone” (originally recorded by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn).
Next up for Garth is the concert special, “Garth Brooks, Live from Las Vegas.” The broadcast event takes place from the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas on Friday, November 29 (9:00 – 11:00 PM LIVE ET/ delayed PT) on CBS.
