» Garth’s Box Set Grows
Garth Brooks is gearing up for a busy couple of weeks. His box set, ‘Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences’ will be released Thanksgiving Day, just in time for Grey Thursday and Black Friday shopping. Plus he’s getting ready to wrap up his run at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas with a TV special.
The box set, which was scheduled to be released November 19, had its sale date moved to go along with the TV special. His Website says the set will now span 8 discs, including the previously-announced four discs of cover songs from artists that have influenced his career. Each will have a separate theme: country classics, classic rock, blue-eyed soul and melting pot. As for the four other discs, they include a two-hour DVD of his Las Vegas show, a re-release of his 2-CD set ‘The Ultimate Hits’ and a disc of his music videos. The whole set will run you $24.96 at Walmart, Sam’s Club and Walmart.com.
On Friday, November 29, Garth will play his final Vegas show and it will be broadcast live on CBS at 8:00.
