Brooks was named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association this year, making it his fifth time. That’s a first for any artist.
He passed Elvis Presley years ago as the No. 1 selling solo artist in the U.S. with more than 148 million album sales. (Presley, the King of Rock & Roll, was listed at 134.5 million).
Brooks has been inducted into the International Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Country Music Hall of Fame and the Musicians Hall of Fame.
He and Yearwood started their World Tour three years ago, selling 5.9 million tickets and turning it into the biggest American tour in the world.
