June 23rd: On This Day

On this day in 1995, Garth Brooks’ The Hits was Certified 6X Platinum for shipments of 6 million copies. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, and Top Country Albums, making it a crossover¬†success.

This was technically Garth’s second best of album,as The Garth Brooks Collection, was released three months earlier exclusively at McDonald’s ¬†to raise money for the Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities.

The album is now out of print, as it was a limited time offer. The Hits well over ten million copies before production on the album stopped.
