Garth Brooks will release Blame It All on My Roots, an eight-disc set including six CDs and two DVDs, on Nov. 28. Featuring four new studio albums, the collection features his versions of music that influenced him, including Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire," Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and other songs popularized by James Taylor, Gladys Knight and others.
Brooks has emphasized cover songs during his one-man show at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas. The limited engagement began in December 2009.
The four new CDs in the boxed set include studio versions of 44 songs from the country, classic rock and blue-eyed soul genres. The package will also include two CDs containing 33 songs from The Ultimate Hits collection, plus a bonus track, "Leave a Light On." Additionally, Blame It All on My Roots will contain a DVD featuring music videos for all 33 songs and a two-hour DVD of Brooks' performances in Las Vegas.
The boxed set is priced at $24.96 and will be available exclusively at Walmart, Sam's Club and Walmart.com. The project is part of the retailer's Black Friday promotion.
The release coincides with Garth Brooks: Live in Las Vegas, a TV special filmed during his final performances at the Wynn. It airs Nov. 29 on CBS.
