Just in time for the holidays, Garth Brooks has announced that he will be releasing a 4-CD box set.

The new release, titled ‘Blame it All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences’ and available exclusively in Walmart stores, features Brooks singing covers of 40 songs from artists who have influenced him in his career, including James Taylor, Gladys Knight, Jerry Lee Lewis and Otis Redding, among others.

The songs will be organized to represent specific music types, with each of the four discs containing 10 songs from a certain genre. The discs will be titled ‘Country Classics,’ ‘Classic Rock,’ ‘Blue Eyed Soul,’ which will cover R&B hits, and ‘Melting Pot,’ featuring songs that don’t fit the other categories — like Cat Stevens’ ‘Wild World’ and Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Mrs. Robinson.’

Trisha Yearwood will be singing backup for Brooks on a number of the recordings and will be featured in a duet covering ‘After the Fire is Gone,’ originally by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn.

‘Blame It All on My Roots’ is set for release on Nov. 19. Brooks will appear in a live television event on CBS to promote the release on Nov. 29. ‘Garth Brooks Live From Las Vegas’ will capture the iconic entertainer in the final performance of his one-man show at the Wynn Las Vegas. That show will also feature Brooks performing some of the selections from the box set.
