Garth Brooks and country music are synonymous. With an unbelievable 30+ year career under his belt, the iconic country artist has achieved many milestones for his music shared with his millions of fans over time, and still today, he is breaking records.
During the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Brooks was honored with the first-ever iHeartRadio Artist of the Decade for his undeniable impact on the music industry. Chris Pratt introduced Garth on stage, who performed a career-spanning medley of hits including "Asking Me How I Know," "Friends In Low Places," which Pratt joined him for!

Then, Brooks accepted the Artist of the Year Award and in his acceptance speech, he said:
"I had the time of my life in the '90s, went home to raise my kids. Anybody that's ever had children, it's the greatest time of your life. And then, to get to come back and to be like this, the only way possible is up to three things, man: the people, the music, and God himself. Thank you very, very much."
Garth Brooks is the #1 selling solo artist in U.S. history, with more than 148 million albums sold and is the first-ever artist to be awarded seven diamonds by the RIAA for having seven albums certified with more than 10 million sales each. Among his endless list of accolades and career milestones, Garth was also recently named the inaugural inductee into the Live Music Hall of Fame and has been inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame, International Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Speaking of breaking records, Garth broke the internet two weeks ago before his LEGACY vinyl collection pre-sale even began, just from sheer demand from all of his fans. LEGACY is a career-spanning collection that celebrates the country legend's incredible music, and if you weren't able to get a copy then, Garth is giving fans a second window to order the LEGACY vinyl, beginning right after the iHeartRadio Music Awards. In fact, iHeartRadio's Bobby Bones asked Brooks to go live and make the collection available for a limited time. Just head over to garthbrooks.com/vinyl or talkshop.live to get your copy!
