The Greatest Hits Collection is the first greatest hits compilation album by the American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. It was released in 1997 (see 1997 in country music) on Arista Nashville, and it chronicles the greatest hits from their first four studio albums: 1991's Brand New Man, 1993's Hard Workin' Man, 1994's Waitin' on Sundown, and 1996's Borderline. The album also includes three new tracks, two of which were released as singles: "Honky Tonk Truth" and "He's Got You", which respectively reached #3 and #2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. In 2004, a sequel, The Greatest Hits Collection II, was released; while the CD version is currently out of print, digital and streaming services carry it in their library.

The album was certified 4× Platinum by the RIAA on July 21, 2005.[2] It has sold 4,608,400 copies in the United States as of April 2017.[3]
