Garth Brooks will release the second instalment of his anthology book and CD series later this year, with the hitmaker hinting Anthology 2: The Next Five Years will likely be released by November.

“It’s like a music box [set] with killer liner notes pretty much – [that’s] what the Anthology is,” Brooks said on Inside Studio G. “There are six CDs in this. It’ll cover the whole back half of the ’90s, including the stuff that you’ve never heard.”

The set contains half a dozen CDs with many of his hits and some unreleased tracks. It also includes a 300-page book with almost 280 photographs and interviews with Keith Urban and Bob Dylan, the latter of who originally wrote and recorded Brooks’ eventual #1 hit To Make You Feel My Love.

“I didn’t know Bob did interviews anymore, but he was sweet enough to do an interview for the Anthology,” Brooks explained. “And Keith Urban did an interview for it because it was through Keith that one of the greatest things in Double Live happened.”

Brooks’ cover of To Make You Feel My Love was released as part of the Hope Floats soundtrack. The new Anthology set will feature a long-lost version featuring his wife, Trisha Yearwood.

“She claims there was a duet with just strings and a guitar. And we dug in the vault, and sure enough – there it was!” Brooks said. “This thing is gorgeous! It’s beautiful.”

Anthology 2 follows the release of the inaugural Anthology set (2017), which covered the first five years of his career from 1989 through 1993, and Anthology 3 (2018), which featured never-before-seen live concert moments. 

On September 20, Brooks will be honoured with the ‘Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the Ryman Auditorium at the 5th annual Nashville Songwriter Awards. 

“It’s pretty damn embarrassing to give a man of Garth’s stature an award with my name on it,” Kristofferson in a statement. “Congratulations Garth; I am truly humbled and honoured that you have accepted this! You belong on Mount Rushmore.”

Brooks added, “Kristofferson is known as the songwriter’s songwriter… and he should be. The honour is the name on the award and the names who have received it. My hope is that through time, the Garth Brooks name is worthy of such an honour. This is going to be a cool night.”
