The Garth Brooks Collection is the first compilation album of American country pop artist Garth Brooks. It was released on September 2, 1994 (see 1994 in country music) and contains ten of Brooks' favorite songs, including his debut single, "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)". This album was only available at McDonald's restaurants for a limited time to raise money for the Ronald McDonald Children's Charities. The Charity received one dollar for every album sold. The $5.99 CD sold over three million copies in three weeks. It was only available for a limited time and is now out of print, as with his second compilation The Hits, released three months later.
