Garth Brooks to Release Box Set of Cover Songs for Christmas

Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Hits has 40 songs.

It’s gonna be a merry Christmas for Garth Brooks fans.

Garth is releasing an eight disc box set of the songs that influenced his career, the same songs he has been performing at his one-man acoustic show in Las Vegas. The set will include six CDs and two DVDs.

Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Hits has no release date yet, but Garth’s people say it will be out before the holidays. The set features Garth covering country classics as well as performing R&B classics, including “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.”

Garth also highlights his classic-rock influences, with songs from Jackson Browne, Bob Seger and others.

The set will also include what he’s calling “Melting Pot,” a collection that includes folk and pop hits like Simon & Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson.”

Garth’s final concert at Wynn Las Vegas will air live on CBS on Nov. 29.
