Garth Brooks and Words With Friends are celebrating their 2019 milestones by giving fans new ways to interact with Garth and the game. On May 1st, Brooks co-hosted Words With Friends LIVE, the nightly trivia game broadcast within Words With Friends 2. In conjunction, the FINAL pre-order window opened for special numbered editions of The Legacy Collection, Brooks’ seven-disc vinyl box set commemorating his entire career. Previous pre-orders for the box set have sold out in a matter of hours, with the first window for the collection selling 420,000 vinyls within 18 hours.
At Zynga, Garth officially opened the FINAL pre-order window for the limited, lumbered seven-disc vinyl box set, The Legacy Collection at GarthBrooks.com/vinyl [garthbrooks.com]. This special collaboration continues with on-going Garth Brooks-themed activities in the game, through May 5 and beyond.
Beginning in 1989 with his self-titled debut album, Garth Brooks has shattered recording and live show records across his career in country music. The first and only artist to win the CMA Award for ‘Entertainer of the Year’ six times, Brooks is also the first artist in history to receive 7 Diamond Awards for seven albums and with over 148 million albums sold, is the #1 selling solo artist in US history. An inductee to the International Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Musicians Hall of Fame, Brooks has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow. His 2019 stadium shows have broken attendance records at each stop, following a three-and-a-half year world tour that ranks as the biggest North American tour in history.
