Garth Brooks has never offered up his music digitally, but in a press conference this month all that changed.

“We’ve never allowed our stuff to go digital. When you do it right, you can all succeed,” he said. “We do digital the best we only know how. Digital will be handled at garthbrooks.com. It will be the only place you can get Garth Brooks’ music.”

In a new report from USA Today, Brooks is predicted to become the best-selling solo act in history with the launch of his digital catalog.

“If he sells a million downloads of his 18-disc catalog — a possibility, considering that he sold almost a million copies last year of Blame It All On My Roots, a Walmart-exclusive box set containing four discs of cover songs — he’ll blow past Elvis Presley in gold and platinum album certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America,” USA Today reports.

And it’s very likely as Brooks told reporters that fans will be able “to get it all at a stupid price.” This will include the country singer’s eight studio albums as well as his Double Live album, two Christmas sets and one album from his brief stint as Chris Gaines. To date, Brooks has sold 134 million to Elvis’ 134.5 million.
