No Fences is the second studio album by American country music artist Garth Brooks. It was released on August 27, 1990 and reached #3 on the Billboard 200, and #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. No Fences remains Brooks' best-selling album to date with 17 million copies sold in the US, and is the album that made him an international star and was his first album issued in Great Britain (the original release in that country contained four bonus tracks, the singles from his previous U.S debut).
Some of Brooks most famous songs appear on No Fences, including: "The Thunder Rolls" (CMA's 1991 Video of the Year), "Friends in Low Places" (Academy of Country Music's 1990 Single of the Year), "Unanswered Prayers" and "Two of a Kind, Workin' on a Full House". A cover version of The Fleetwoods' "Mr. Blue" appears on the album. The album itself was named Album of the Year by the ACM in 1990. It reached Number 1 on the British country music charts (earning Brooks his first gold album in that country) and remained charted for over five years.
The track "Victim of the Game" was later covered by Garth's friend and future wife Trisha Yearwood for her 1991 eponymous debut album.
