And Brooks' world tour will start in...

Monday, July 14, 2014 – Garth Brooks will start his world-wide tour in Chicago.

That's the word from Andy Roberts, the Brooks fan in Atlanta that Brooks promised would be the first to know.

Roberts posted the announcement via Twitter for the handle - #TFMAndy -of his janitorial supply company, Turkey Farm Maintenance. Roberts attended a Brooks show at the Wynn in Las Vegas where Brooks had a residency and asked where the world tour would start. Not satisfied with the response after some fans wanted it to start in Sin City, Brooks said at that show Roberts would be the first to know.

He reiterated the story last Thursday at the press conference announcing he would release new music and launch a world tour. At the time, Brooks said he did not know Andy's name, bur figured they would find each other. He said he would call Roberts and allow him to do as he wished with the information.

Brooks is scheduled to announce the tour on Tuesday. No start was given for the tour by Roberts.

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. ...
