He's on his way back, folks.
In an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America today, Garth Brooks announced that he'll soon be playing new music for fans around the nation.
“You know what, since it’s you and since we’ve had a history forever, let’s announce it. We’re going on a world tour in 2014,” Brooks said to the reporter. “I can’t believe I just did that, but you are a doll.”
Brooks added that he needed the go-ahead from wife Trisha Yearwood before making this major decision.
“It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring,” Brooks said. “All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood.”
The singer is the best-selling album artist since SoundScan began tracking U.S. sales data in 1991 and announced his retirement from recording and performing in 2000.
But he has a six-disc set (“Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences") coming out soon that includes covers, his greatest hits and a DVD of his Las Vegas show.
No tour dates have been released yet, but look for venue and ticket information to be made public in the very near future.
