Country music superstarGarth Brookshas been coy about rumors his new album and post-Thanksgiving TV special could signal a return to the concert stage as well, until he sat down with “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts.
“You know what, since it’s you and since we’ve had a history forever, let’s announce it. We’re going on a world tour in 2014,” Brooks told Roberts today on “GMA.” “I can’t believe I just did that but you are a doll.”
Brooks, 52, appeared on the morning show, guitar in hand, to promote his new album, “Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences,” a six-disc set includes covers, his greatest hits and a DVD of his Las Vegas show.
When talk turned to a possible tour, the “Friends in Low Places” singer at first said he was worried that, at his age, it would be a “wheelchair and walker tour kind of thing.”
After saying his first priority in deciding to tour would be to get approval from his family – wife,Trisha Yearwood, and three daughters – Brooks alluded to an annoucement coming “very soon” before spilling the news himself live on-air.
“It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring,” Brooks said. “All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood,”
