Wal-Mart Plans More Garth Brooks Releases

Wal-Mart will release an expanded version of Garth Brooks’ The Lost Sessions on Feb. 7. The company has also announced plans to issue digitally remastered versions of eight of his classic albums — Garth Brooks, No Fences, Ropin’ the Wind, The Chase, In Pieces, Fresh Horses, Sevens and Scarecrow. All of the CDs will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores as part of Brooks’ partnership with the retailer. The Lost Sessions first appeared as part of Garth Brooks: The Limited Series, a multi-disc boxed set released in November. The new version of The Lost Sessions will include the 11 tracks in the boxed set plus six more unreleased songs. Among the unreleased tracks is “Love Will Always Win,” a duet with Trisha Yearwood. The track is featured on a new version of her latest album, Jasper County, also set for Feb. 7 release.
