No Fences

August 1990

NO FENCES (Diamond Award) – Certified over 17 million, NO FENCES has been called, “The greatest country album ever recorded.” It was Garth’s first #1 album and his first album to sell more than 10 million copies. This amazing album brought four #1 hits including “THE THUNDER ROLLS” and “I’VE GOT FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES.”

At the time of its release, it was impossible to predict the impact NO FENCES would have, not only on Garth’s career, but also on the way country music would be viewed from that point on. “I’ve Got Friends in Low Places” was the CMA and ACM Single of the Year. While “The Thunder Rolls” was the American Music Awards Favorite Country Single of 1992. NO FENCES boasts two other #1 hit singles: “Unanswered Prayers” and “Two of a Kind (Workin’ on a Full House)”. NO FENCES launched Brooks’ career by winning six Academy of Country Music Awards, including Album of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, and Entertainer of the Year! No collection is complete without this great album.
