Amazon/Geico Celebrates 25th Anniversary Of Garth Albums With Free Downloads

Garth Brooks

It’s been 25 years since Garth Brooks released his hit albums The Chase and In Pieces, and in celebration of the special anniversary, Amazon Music and Geico are offering fans a free download of both releases today (Aug. 15). A limited quantity of downloads are available and can be accessed at Brooks announced the reveal with a G-Alert on Facebook.

Both albums were history-making: The Chase was the second album ever to debut at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart, while In Pieces was Garth’s third album in a row to debut at No. 1 on both Billboard charts. The Chase included the smash singles, “Somewhere Other Than The Night,” “That Summer,” and “Learning To Live Again,” while In Pieces featured the hits “Ain’t Goin’ Down (Til The Sun Comes Up,”) “Standing Outside The Fire,” and “Callin’ Baton Rouge.”

The Chase and In Pieces are two of the biggest and most enduring albums in country music history,” said Ryan Redington, Director of Amazon Music. “When these albums were released 25 years ago, Garth fans flocked to music stores to purchase CDs. Starting today, Amazon Music customers can easily download these iconic albums free for a limited time.”

Brooks’ entire studio collection is exclusively available to stream and download on Amazon Music. Since his debut to streaming on Amazon last October, he has become one of the top-streamed artists on the service. All of Brooks’ 16 studio albums are currently available for Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers, and select albums are also available to stream for Prime members.

Brooks appeared at an exclusive Nashville event, hosted by Amazon last night (Aug. 14), touting the importance of album sales for songwriter royalties.
