Garth-Brooks-InsertAfter his successful concert-promotion on television, Garth Brooks is hitting the tour-circuit once again. The country musician confirmed earlier reports that he will once again tour earlier this morning. At 51 Brooks won’t be the oldest country star on the road, but he will be one of the most popular acts around. Brooks made the announcement of the world tour in an appearance he made today (Monday) on Good Morning America.
“Our baby is a senior in high school. We talked about it, all my babies are fine with it. Miss [Trisha] Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music,” Brooks stated.
Brooks had retired from touring after 2000, he is an Oklahoma native and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Speaking of his upcoming return to the stage Brooks said, “It sure feels good to throw your hat back into the ring,” he added, “My children are off on their own … I’m a phone-call dad now – that’s where I’m at.”
No word on how often, or if at all, his partner in crime (Trisha Yearwood, another of Country’s Classic Singers) will be touring with him, or singing with him on stage.
