See? Even Garth thinks vinyl is COOL! | Garth Brooks continues to break records! The best-selling country star announced in a Build Series interview with “Today” show co-host Jenna Bush Hager on Monday evening that he’s opening up a third pre-order window for his upcoming Legacy Vinyl Collection.
Fans who have yet to be able to order his vinyl collection, which includes three boxed sets, on Friday, April 12, at 11 a.m. EST, when the country singer will hold another talkshoplive stream.
Brooks proved his selling power during his first-ever vinyl collection’s initial two pre-order windows: During the first 18-hour opening, he sold 420,000 vinyls and, during the second 24-hour period, he sold another 300,000. That brings his current total vinyl sales to 720,000 in less than 48 hours.
As Forbes noted, “to put this in context, The Beatles were the number-one vinyl artist in 2018 with 321,000 sales in over 12 months.”
Brooks’ Legacy Collection will only be produced once, taking over eight months to manufacture in over four countries, with each box being hand-packed. The three boxed sets are The Limited Edition, The Original Analog Edition and The Digitally Remixed/Remastered Edition. Each set includes five albums: No Fences, The Chase, In Pieces, Fresh Horses and Triple Live, in addition to companion CD’s. That makes the total seven vinyl albums and seven CD’s in each set.
