Just about all of them are here

"Last I knew this had been certified for over 10 million in sales so I'm not sure how many people interested in this don't have it already, but those wanting to get an overview of just about all of Garth's hits will find most of them here. (Singles pre-1994, that is. That means don't look for "She's Every Woman","The Fever","Beaches of Cheyenne","The Change","It's Midnight Cinderella","That Ol' Wind","In Another's Eyes","Long Neck Bottle","She's Gonna Make It","Two Pina Coladas","To Make You Feel My Love" or "You Move Me")

If you're not sure what Garth means to country music, consider that before him a country show primarily meant the musicians simply performing without much showmanship. Garth brought flames, smokescreen, flying out over the stage on wires and other razzle dazzle to his shows and fans turned up in droves. He reminded country performers that a little spectacle isn't necessarily a bad thing.

All of these were chart hits to some degree or other but obviously some songs stand taller than others. To this day, "Friends in Low Places", "The Thunder Rolls", "Unanswered Prayers" and "If Tomorrow Never Comes" still get frequent (and deserved) airplay. "That Summer" doesn't get as many spins, but it should because it's a perfect evocation of the emotions every man goes through the first time he has sex. Garth was right about "Callin' Baton Rouge"'s a great song. At least if New Grass Revival couldn't get a solid hit out of it, they got some recognition for the tune.

"American Honky-Tonk Bar Association" (the same stereotypes as on "Friends in Low Places" but without the great sense of humour) and the preachy "We Shall Be Free" are the clunkers here, despite their chart appearance.

He was the Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year 5 times. He's one of only 3 musicians to ever appear as both host and musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" (Dolly Parton was 1 of the other 2...not bad company). These are the greatest hits of the most popular country artist of the 1990s."
Great Collection Of Garth Brooks Biggest Hits!

"While I am not a very big fan of country music, I have watched Garth Brooks' career with interest, for he seems to have a talent for producing some very interesting music and with a series of collaborators certainly has a lyrical gift worth appreciating. On particular songs such as "The Dance", he shows how high he is able to soar as an artist, although I have to confess that a lot of his other songs I find less than enthralling. Still, I am of the opinion that this collection of his hits is well worth listening to, and there really is something worth listening to here for everyone, even if much of what is here is not necessarily for everyone.I am a sucker for most sentimental songs, although I do have limits, and much of what country music presents goes far beyond what I can appreciate, over into the land of contrived hooks and emotional showboating. Yet most of us would agree that "if Tomorrow Never Comes" is one of those songs that runs recklessly on the edge of the latter but stays beautifully just inside the limits of what even an old curmudgeon like me has to love! So, too, does the thoughtful emotionalism forwarded in "The River" and "Unanswered Prayers" provide us with examples of just how good Garth can be at his best. So too his magical lyrical confections catch us up in spite of ourselves in songs like "Standing Outside The Fire". Garth does indeed have a way with words.We all should appreciate the degree to which Brooks has been an influence on the direction of contemporary country music, and I dare to be of the opinion that he has helped to encourage a degree of seriousness and purpose among many young songwriters that the general level of excellence has been lifted. While we may always be victimized by the "You Flushed Me Down The Toilet of Your Heart" kind of country singers, we can also look forward to an occasional glimpse at songs like "The Dance" or "The River" because of Garth. Enjoy!"
