Brooks coming out of retirement to tour, release new CD

Thursday, July 10, 2014 – Garth Brooks is going to announce that he's coming out of retirement and will release a new album and tour, Billboard reported this morning.

Brooks may release a new studio album through Sony Nashville plus tour globally. Billboard said the tour could launch this fall in the U.S. with prices of $60 to $80 per ticket.

Sony Nashville reportedly was going to host a press conference at the same exact time as Brooks.

Brooks retired from touring in 2001 with intermittent live performances and a residency at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel.

Brooks was slated to perform five shows in Dublin, Ireland at the end of July, but the shows were canceled due to licensing issues from the Dublin City Council. Brooks has said he would do all five shows if given permission. The council okayed three shows.

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. ...
