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.
