Garth Brooks is More than a Memory

Garth Brooks is back on the radio with his yearly single. This time it’s titled More than a Memory.

Garth Brooks Ultimate HitsThe thought of a new Garth music shouldn’t come as to much of a surprise. It seems that with his Walmart deal, Garth gets a new product each year and those products are then promoted via a new radio single. This year the product is The Ultimate Hits and contains:

… 30 classics, 3 new songs and a bonus track on two CDs. The set also includes a DVD with 33 videos including new and ever-before-seen footage.

Now, I have to say that sounds like a lot of good stuff. However, most of it is really just a mix of everything I already have. Either way, I’m headed to Walmart on November 6th to pick it up.

Sadly the Walmart deal means that there is no Garth in iTunes and I’m not even sure that the Walmart music store will let you download More than a Memory. Garth, you’re really missing out there. Instead you either have to be patient and listen to it on the radio or find other ways of getting it. πŸ˜‰

More than a Memory is an excellent song and I can’t wait to hear what else is new.

Listen to More than a Memory now: // MP3 Removed. Go buy the CD.

    Garth Brooks’ ‘The Ultimate Hits’ is set to hit stores November 6. While his last compilation of hits was sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, this new project will be available to all retailers, with the exception of online services such as iTunes — Brooks is adamant that the project be sold as a set and not available for downloading separate tracks.
    The album will be self-distributed via his Pearl Records to all retailers. “We’re doing deals one-on-one with retail,” Brooks’ said. His two-year exclusive deal with Wal-Mart expired on July 7.

  8. Thomas says:

  9. Anne says:

    i got the song downloaded!! OMG just as i started writing this Garth’s song came on the radio!!! SO COOL!!!!

  10. Darryl says:

    Thanks for this mate, missed this guys voice on some “new” material like hell, all we need now is an album of new material & I’m in heaven – By the way saw Garth in Dublin a few years ago – best concer I’ve ever been to.

  11. Heather says:

    Actually FYI, more than a memory was written by Lee Brice, who sings She Ain’t Right, currently on the radio as well. Brice is quite talented and had More Than a Memory on his myspace profile for a while, but had to remove it when Brooks bought the rights to it. useless trivia for the day.

  12. Thomas says:

    Nice Heather. I like that kind of useless trivia. πŸ™‚

  13. Stacie says:

    Thanks so much, I really like this song and couldn’t find it anywhere! Went well with my Corona! Thanks, I owe ya one!!

  14. jess says:

  15. Nadja says:

  16. Haashuka says:

    I find it interesting that Garth broke Kenny’s Don’t Blink record with this sone and by golly Kenny has a song on his new album called Better As A Memory. Okay maybe not that interesting.

  17. sjarmer96 says:

  18. Maryann says:

    “Thank-You” so much! I too have been trying to find this. To Garth if you every see this you are and will always be #1 in my book; its good to see you never stopped loving your 1st wife the song delivers it ALL. Your aces BABE Welcome Back!

  26. Alannah says:

    This song is the best..Cant wait for Garth to come back..hopefully.

  27. Ann says:

  28. LuAnne says:

    The Annual Fordham Fest is held in Dover, Delaware. Sorry, I did not read the comments until today! Maybe you can make it next year!!! Or if you are ever in the area, call and I can give you a tour. 302-678-4810

  29. Lisa says:

    Im glad I found this song here. Ive only heard it a couple of times on the radio. Garth just keeps getting better and better. Can’t wait til he actually comes back out of retirement!!!

  30. Steve Miller says:

    You’re right, it makes no sense to not sell the album with the single or just the single for that matter, right away.
    Look what radio has done to Rascal Flatts – they have worn them out to the point I change the station when they come on.
    Same with Garth. They are playing the hell out of “memory” and frankly, by November 6th, I’ll be sick of it.
    Right now I would buy it – will I by then, nope.

  31. Dierna says:

    Wow! Thanks for putting this on your blog!! I’ve been wanting to hear the new Garth song. Im a big fan but my mom’s the bigger fan in the family. Back when Garth was releasing an album just about every year I always knew what to get her for Christmas. *lol* This year it’ll be the same. Not like she doesn’t have the other box sets (well she does) but hey! New songs and a cover to a Huey Lewis song (which I thought they’d be releasing first).

    This song is pretty sad but I love it just the same. πŸ˜€

  32. gaelen says:

    i think that this song is another garth brooks song…one of the greatest … it relates to anyone who has really had their heart broke and i was doing all of the things he says about a year ago.

  33. Kevin says:

    Thanks for putting this song up. How can I get it played on my myspace? This song really hits the spot right now.

  34. Stephanie says:

    November 6 is my b-day!! i love garth’s music! i me thim twice and he’s the best!!! thank you for the info! i looked all ove the internet for this song!

  35. Kim says:

    Thanks for listing this song, I was looking for it because my son’s girlfriend broke up with him and he asked if I heard the song. He said, “It seems like it was written for him”. I think I need to go home and give him a big HUG.
    It is a heartfelt song!

  36. Rob says:

    Heard this song for the first time on the way home from a football game I coached in. After a tough break up. football has been my sanctuary. I can go to practice or a game to forget the pain. Garth hit it flat on the head with how I feel these days. Driving by her house, dialing, but not hitting send, calling friends for support and not being able to sleep because that is when she visits. I never dreamed about her until she was gone. Thanks for another great song Garth. You are still the man brother.

  37. bob says:

    i love this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how can i download it to my ipod?

  38. Thomas says:

    Bob, you’ll have to wait for November for the CD.

  39. Jon says:

    just got word of this song from my x girlfriend.. she told me to change it from she to he.. and well. told me that its her song to me . odd enough.. now that i have listen to it 3 times in a roll. i like it.. to bad such a beautiful song has to be heard on such a sad note… Garth is the man..

  40. bob says:

    i thought that someone had said there was a way to download it now to an ipod.i dont really want to buy the whole cd…i just want this one song.

  41. Jody says:

    It’s good to hear a new one from Garth. I think anyone that has been throuogh a breakup will appreciate this tune. Way to go Garth!

  42. Kellie says:

    Thank you so much!!! No one else has this song!!

  43. Crystal Oliver says:

    hey I thought your blog was great if I wasn’t so broke I would buy you a beer. This song is fantastic, It reminds me of my boyfriend He just recently went through a divorce and the woman he was with did a number on him. This song reminds me of him alot. Last year he “drank more than he could ever drank” and he still thinks about her alot. and I feel like I can’t fill that void but we’re getting there. He went through a period where he wouldn’t sleep and so I can definetly relate to this song. My fella heard it for the first time yesterday and he didn’t know what to say and after a while he jokingly looked over at me and said,”hey he wrote a song about me.”
    Thanks for sharing your opions and may GOD Bless you in all taht you do, Crystal Oliver

  44. Sam says:

    Loved the song, awsome job. It just reminds me of a song I heard once before. I think maybe by BonJovi.

  48. Pat Murphy says:

    I’d buy you a beer if I could for the chance to listen to More Than A Memory. Geez…another number 1 hit for Garth Books – who is still, and always will be, the best there is. Thanks for sharing. I love that song!

  49. amanda says:

    this is an amazing song, i can relate to it so much by far my fave garth brooks song so far

  50. Andy says:

    This song touch a spot that was hidden for 3 years.
    We had one of his songs that was ours and then when it was over I stopped listening to that song.
    Who would have known that he would make a song like this that stirs up old feeling that I kept hidden.
    So this is for Amy C.Cohron you are more then a memory to me.

  51. Gilby says:

    Thanks for the posting of the song!!! I am glad to see Garth back. Country music hasnt been the same since he left!!!!

  52. suzette says:

    I love this song too! Only the person that told me about it knows why,thanks for letting me know about this song.I will never forget you! SZ5

  55. Tiffany says:

  56. Michele says:

    i love this song it remnds me so muchof my daughters father and it reminds me of all the people that i truly loved in the past i have searched everywhere for this song i play ot over and over

  57. Angela says:

    Heard this song on my way in to work this morning… brought a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat. Made me call him, even though it was me that sent him away.
    It hurts me that things didn’t work out, I knew he loved me. I hope he will figure it out what it is that bothers him so much, because he has so much to share and give to another.
    We had a great time, He won’t be forgotten.

  58. Meg says:

    It’s really hard letting someone go that you feel so much for…and you just can’t get that person out of your head. You try so hard to forget, to leave it all behind…to just be able to move forward with your life. But everytime you try to block it out, you tell yourself to just live day by day. ..just one day at a time. You Tell yourself it’s for the best, it will be OK. Things start getting better…Then you have a dream, and it’s so real, and you wake up suddenly, and then can’t get back to sleep. The memories start coming back, and you can’t get them out of your head. You know you just can’t let them go, but you can’t go on living like this…maybe with time…you will forget…but maybe not…

    This is a great song!!!!!!

  59. Crystal says:

    I seriously love this song. I just got out of a relationship and I just love to hear this song. It makes me sad but then again, I remember all the friends I have!!

  60. Paige says:

    THX for putting the song on here. I’ve looked everywhere for a single of this song. Garth needs to get on the ball and GET THIS SONG OUT! I LOVE IT! Had I found it today in Wal-Mart, I would’ve bought it. Too slow on the trigger Garth (Garth’s ppl.). Oh, well. Guess I’ll have to wait til Nov. 6th like everybody else.

  61. Lynda says:

    I love this song too…it is pretty true to life for a break up. But does anyone else notice this song goes perfectly with the “Chris Gaines” CD? πŸ™‚

  62. Sarah says:

    You can download it if you have Limewire, but make sure you dont share files. πŸ™‚

  63. Emily says:

    Please, PLEASE, please buy the “PINK EDITION” of Garth’s new cd “Ultimate Hits” coming out November 6 which is available at This gives money DIRECTLY to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer organization. According to the website, “Garth Brooks has made a commitment to join in the promise to end breast cancer forever. For every “Pink Edition” of The Ultimate Hits album sold, $10 will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.” This is a tremendous generosity on Garth’s part, so we should thank him for giving us the opportunity to support the cause through purchasing his cd by going ahead and doing so! Remember, IT IS THE EXACT SAME CD, just a “Pink Edition”…you will not be getting anything less than the “real thing,” or anything “goofy.” If you buy the “non-pink” edition cd from Wal-mart, money will NOT go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

    PLEASE go to to purchase your cd. You can pre-order now!

    I am not affiliated with Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I have lost a grandmother, an aunt, and a first cousin to breast cancer, and have an aunt battling it now. Thank you for your support.

  64. Thomas says:

    I’ll be getting one of every edition. Is the Pink one only available on line?

    Wow. After 2 years of dating and 6 weeks of engagement, he walks out the door. That was 11 months ago. Change this to a he and this describes me from the inside out. Every word is so true, until I heard More than a Memory, I didn’t know anyone understood the pain.
