Today, Nov. 14, marks the release of the first book in Garth Brooks‘ five-part autobiography, The Anthology: Part 1—The First Five Years.

As the title suggests, the first book is a deep dive into the first five years of Brooks’ career. The hardcover book includes 150 never-before-seen photos and five CDs, which include 19 unreleased or demo songs, according to Nash Country Daily.

The country singer said of the autobiography:

“You’re gonna hear from the songwriters of the songs [on The Anthology], you’re gonna hear from the players that played the songs, you’re gonna hear from everybody that ever made that song what it was. That is the blessing of [producer] Allen Reynolds, the Lord above, [manager] Bob Doyle, who’s been with you since day one, the players that’s been together since day one, bandmembers on tour, crew members on tour that’s been together since day one, people that work with you together since day one. That’s a family. And the family is reflected in The Anthology. And I think that’s why I love it so much.”
