Garth's Latest Duet Is With Susan G. Komen for the Cure

The Pink Edition of Brooks' new "Ultimate Hits" three disk package which includes 34 videos of all his hits and DVD as well as two CD's containing all of his hits marks the first time in history a music artist has simultaneously released two versions of an album, with one version dedicated solely to charity.

Available November 6 for $15 exclusively through Komen’s online Promise Shop, at, $10 from each Pink Edition sold will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The set also contains three new songs and a bonus track on two audio including new and never-before-seen video footage. Additionally, the album will feature important breast health and breast cancer information along with an instructional card on breast self-examination.

Brooks said he was inspired to make the special Pink Edition of his Ultimate Hits and have it offered exclusively through Komen after watching his wife train for and participate in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The event challenges participants to walk 60 miles over three days to benefit Komen and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Brooks said making the album was “a heck of a lot easier than me trying to walk 60 miles.” Producing and packaging the limited Pink Edition of his album with its distinct design and messaging, he said, was a way he could contribute to saving lives and searching for the cures for breast cancer.

And, speaking of Trisha, for the first time ever, in conjunction with the on-air album premiere special for the November 13th release of Trisha Yearwood's Big Machine debut collection "Heaven, Heartache And The Power Of Love," country radio stations will be offered a live concert stream for their websites.

Housed on a widget being dubbed 'The Trisha Yearwood Online Player', the live concert takes place on November 13th at 7:00pm CT from Nashville's Music Row. The live concert event is the anchor content piece for a player that also features an exclusive free download of Yearwood's hit single "Heaven, Heartache And The Power Of Love", a stream of her current music video, track cut-by-cut commentary from Trisha, exclusive photos, and more.

'The Trisha Yearwood Online Player' is live the entire month of November on a market exclusive basis.
"It's so exciting to re-invent the album premiere special," notes Trisha Yearwood. "I am always anxious for fans to hear new music and because of our partnership with Westwood One, we will be able to bring the fans new music both on-air and online in new ways."
The market exclusive on-air album premiere special is available in four formats: a one hour special hosted by Lon Helton; a 20 minute special hosted by Lon Helton; a one hour brown bag special; and a 20 minute brown bag special.
