Brooks announces 2014 world tour

Monday, December 9, 2013 – Garth Brook is going back on tour.

Brooks made the surprise announcement son Good Morning America this morning.

Brooks has been laying solo gigs in Las Vegas and now will play with his band there for a few shows.

During an interview with Robin Roberts, she said the shows with the band has led to questions about whether he would go on a full scale tour. After saying that he would "love to fire it up. It's still a decision that our family has to make. Between me and you, I think we'll make an announcement soon," Brooks paused and broke the news. "We're going on a world tour 2014...I can't believe I just did that...Let's just go ahead and announce it now."

Brooks said he would talk with radio at the end of this week to talk about the tour.

"It sure feels good to get to throw your back in the ring," Brooks said.

"Now, I get what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Miss Yearwood," he said referring to his wife singer Trisha Yearwood. "My children are off on their own."

He has been off the road from a full scale tour since 2001 to raise his three children. He has done sporadic shows over the years with the Las Vegas shows being his most steady. Brooks just released a box set on Thanksgiving, "Blame It All on My Roots," a four-CD covers disc plus a two-CD greatest hits collection and a concert DVD.

"I can't believe I just did that," Brooks said, at the end of the interview.

The high points for Brooks are the three most traditional country songs - a couple of honky tonkers ("Honky-Tonk Somewhere" and "Cowboys and Friends") and a ballad ("Whiskey to Wine"). ...
CD review - Man Against Machine After releasing his debut album in 1989, Garth Brooks released music almost every year until he announced his retirement in 2000. Since then, he has released repackaged hit collections, new music on "Scarecrow" and "The Lost Sessions" and last year's cover song collection "Blame it All on My Roots." Over the years, there have been live recordings, concert and music video collections. The country songwriter became a pop culture icon, transcending genre to become ...
CD review - Blame It All On My Roots - Five Decades of Influences Garth Brooks is back with his first release of "new" material since 2001's "Scarecrow." (Truth in advertising, his "The Ultimate Hits," which actually is part of the new box set, included four new songs back in 2007). And it's quite an undertaking - four CDs of covers - Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot, an amalgam of country, rock, soul and folk; the two-CD set, "The Ultimate Set" and a DVD of his live performance in Vegas. ...
