Garth Brooks surprised fans with the announcement of an upcoming world tour when he visited Good Morning America on Monday, December 9th. Brooks went on the show to promote his album, Blame It on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences, but ended up spilling the beans to audience nationwide.
“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 said. “I can’t believe I just did that but you are a doll.”
“It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring,” he stated. “Our baby is a senior in high school. We’ve talked about it. 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. And my children are off on their own.”
And speaking about his children, the country crooner explained: “I’m a phone call dad now. ‘Hey Dad, I love you, can I borrow some money? So that’s where I’m at and I feel very lucky to have three healthy children and they are getting ready to step off into their own paths of the world.”
