GARTH BROOKS ANNOUNCES THIRD LIMITED SERIES BOXED SET, AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BASS PRO SHOPS AND READY FOR PRE-ORDER NOW 7-Disc Set Will Include New Studio Album
As he announced on Inside Studio G, his weekly Faceboo Live series, Garth Brooks will release The Limited Series, a boxed set including a new studio album, exclusively through Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s on Black Friday, November 24. It is currently available for pre-order on the Bass Pro Shops web site.
In addition to much-anticipated new music, the set contains a special edition of Triple Live with a CD booklet featuring photos from Brooks’s 2022 concerts celebrating the opening of Bass Pro Shops Thunder Ridge Arena® near Branson, Missouri. Man Against Machine, Gunslinger, and FUN round out the music in the set, and like the previous Limited Series, the traditional booklet with lyrics, pictures, and more completes the collection.
This is Brooks’s third and final Limited Series boxed set, each offering fans an enticing combination of previously released albums and new music.
Brooks made history with the release of his first boxed set, The Limited Series, in 1998. It was the first boxed set to debut at #1 on two charts (the Billboard Country and Top 200) since the inception of Soundscan in 1991. Its first-week sales of 372,410 also set a record for first-week sales of any boxed set during the Soundscan era. The Limited Series earned its name because only 2 million units were produced. It contained Brooks’s first six multi-platinum studio releases--Garth Brooks, No Fences, Ropin’ the Wind, The Chase, In Pieces and Fresh Horses—plus a new bonus track on each CD, for a total of 66 cuts and over three hours of music. One of the bonus tracks, the Bob Dylan-penned “To Make You Feel My Love,” was another #1 smash for Brooks.
In 2005 Brooks released his second boxed set, Garth Brooks: The Limited Series, exclusively through Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, and Walmart.com. It contained Sevens, Scarecrow, and Double Live, as well as All Access, a DVD containing interviews and live performances. The box also contained The Lost Sessions, a collection of previously unreleased recordings made between 1997 and 2001. On its first day of sale, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. announced that the boxed set had achieved the company’s highest volume of sales ever for the first day of a musical release. It became the top selling music item in the company’s history after only three days’ availability and hit the one million sales mark in its second week.
“The first Limited Series came out in the late ’90s,” Brooks explains, “and it was a chance for everyone to get all the music at a really cool low price. Everyone gets to ‘catch up,’ which I thought was cool. Did the same thing in the second Limited Series. Now the third – and I’m going to tell you right now, I guarantee that this’ll be the last Limited Series that we’ll do.”
