Garth Brooks celebrates 14th #1 album & fourth consecutive #1 album debut

Man Against Machine tops the Billboard Country Chart in its first week

Garth Brooks’ first album of new material in 13 years, Man Against Machine, has topped the Billboard Country Chart, marking the artist’s 14th #1 album debut and his fourth consecutive #1 album debut, dating back to his 2001 release Scarecrow.

Currently on his world tour with Trisha Yearwood, Brooks continues to shatter records, recently breaking his North American ticket sales record for a single city with 203,235 tickets sold from eleven shows at the Target Center in Minneapolis, the most tickets he has ever sold for a single city in North America. Brooks’ new single off Man Against Machine, the moving tribute “Mom,” debuted on Good Morning America earlier this month and has since set off a chain reaction on social media from fans hoping to hear “Mom” on country radio.

“Mom” will impact country radio on November 24th.
