Country music legend Garth Brooks recently revealed the cover for his new project, The Anthology, Part II: The Next Five Years.
Adding onto his previous project, The Anthology, Part I: The First Five Years, Garth will pick up where he left off and tell his story in his own words. Fans will also receive insight into both his professional and personal life ranging from the years 1996-2001.
Beginning August 1st, fans will have the opportunity to join Garth live in his studio, via TalkShopLive, to learn about the stories that are home to the Anthology. Fans will also be able to ask him questions, as well as get their ears on some new music. To RSVP, click here.
Trisha Yearwood, country music star and wife of Garth, shares, “The way I see it, Garth spent the first five years of that crazy ride just hanging on for dear life! In the second five years, you start to see a captain steering his own ship.”
The Next Five Years will give fans a greater look inside the stories behind the songs as well as the recording sessions for Fresh Horses, Sevens, The Limited Series, Double Live, and Scarecrow. In addition, fans will see the details behind recording “Beer Run” with George Jones in addition to Keith Urban’s perspective on the first time he got to record with the iconic artist.
On top of sharing music, the Anthology will also showcase his devotion and incredible connection to his fans with footage from his 24-hour signing session at Fan Fair in 1996. It will also explain the reasoning for the delay in the release of Sevens and Garth’s decision to announce his retirement.
“I learned a lot!” Garth laughs. “The interviews (Bob Dylan, Keith Urban, Steve Wariner and more) just floored me! Miss Yearwood claimed there was a duet version of ‘To Make You Feel My Love’ that only she remembered. But when we found it buried deep in the vault, I was amazed how raw and beautiful it was!”
Part II is a 6-disc set that will complete the Anthology. Featuring highlights from his musical career over the years, it will include two previously unreleased recordings.
