Brooks finds tour mate

Friday, July 11, 2014 – Garth Brooks has a co-headliner on his upcoming world tour - his wife.

Brooks told Billboard in an interview following his announcement that he would release new music and launch a world tour that Yearwood would be aboard as well.

"The tour is going to be Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood," Brooks told Billboard, "so you get to run the planet with your best friend playing music, while your girls are healthy, thank God, and they're living their life finding their path. It's a pretty cool place to be in right now."

Yearwood and Brooks married on Dec. 10, 2005.

Yearwood has been on the inactive side career-wise. Her last studio album, "Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love" was released in 2007 on Big Machine. She also has been on the Food Network station with "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" starting in 2012.

Brooks will announce his world tour dates next week. New music is slated to be released within two months with a double album coming out around Thanksgiving. Brooks retired from the industry in 2001 to spend time with his three daughters.

Blame It All On My Roots - Five Decades of Influences 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. »»»
