Garth Brooks Collects Ninth #1 Album

Garth Brooks CD

Garth Brooks earns his ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 this week, as his new boxed set, Blame It All On My Roots: Five Decades Of Influences, jumps 3-1 in its second week. The sizable package (which contains six CDs and two DVDs) is exclusively sold through Walmart, and moved 146,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 8th, according to Nielsen SoundScan. A week ago, it bowed at No. 3 with 164,000 from fewer than four days of sales. (It was released on Thanksgiving Day.) The set carries a list price of $29.98, but is sale-priced for $24.96. Brooks is tied for the most No. 1 albums with The Rolling Stones and Barbra Streisand, with nine each. Ahead of them on the all-time most-No. 1s list are Elvis Presley and Bruce Springsteen (both with 10 No. 1s), Jay Z (13) and the Beatles (19). “Blame It All on My Roots” is Brooks’ second boxed set to reach No. 1, following the six-CD collection The Limited Series” in 1998. “Blame” is also the first No. 1 album to contain more than two discs since 2003, when Led Zeppelin’s three-CD live set How The West Was Won” debuted atop the list. It was the first three-or-more disc album to hit No. 1 since — you guessed it — “The LimitedSeries.”
