Certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as the No. 1 selling solo artist in U.S. history, Garth Brooks has sold in excess of 128 million albums. He is the only solo artist in RIAA history to have six albums top the 10 million mark. His most recent release, The Ultimate Hits, has been certified five times platinum. His body of work--including the groundbreaking No Fences, Ropin' The Wind, The Hits, and Double Live--propelled country music as a genre to the front pages of newspapers worldwide and the covers of magazines, to the point where Forbes declared: "Country Conquers Rock," and featured Garth in a major story. According to RIAA, Garth is the top-selling solo artist of the 20th century. In the midst of one of the most successful careers in music history, Garth retired in 2001, delivered his last record for Capitol Records and moved back to Oklahoma to raise his children.
