Ropin’ The Wind

September 1991

ROPIN’ THE WIND (Diamond Award & Grammy Award Winner) – Certified over 14 million, ROPIN’ THE WIND was the first album in history to debut at #1 on both the Billboard 200 Top Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums chart.

Even though it was known as the son of NO FENCES, ROPIN’ THE WIND would turn out to make the most noise of any Garth album. With the help of the hit singles, “Shameless” – “Rodeo” – “Papa Loved Mama” – “The River”, ROPIN’ THE WIND would quickly rewrite the history books a number of times and become Garth’s second album to sell more than 10 million copies. While ROPIN’ THE WIND held the #1 position on the country albums chart, the #2 and #3 albums were NO FENCES (at 52 weeks) and GARTH BROOKS (at 123 weeks), respectively. This was an unprecedented achievement that has yet to be repeated! ROPIN’ THE WIND is a MUST for any collection.
