Garth Brooks announced to anchor Robin Roberts on Good Morning America on Monday Dec 9th when he dropped his 2014 world tour announcement.
Brooks originally scheduled on the show to promote his new box set, “Blame It All on My Roots, which is being sold through retail giant Walmart debuted at No. 1 and appears to still be selling strong through Christmas. When questioned by Robin Roberts regarding the possibility Garth told longtime interviewer that “Between you and me, I think we’ll make an announcement very soon.”
“If you want to, you can make it right now,” she sat stunned in silence for a second, Brooks then stated “Well, 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.”
The studio audience erupted with applause and excitement, while Roberts hugged Brooks, who stated, “I can’t think of a better way — I can’t believe I just did that, but you are a doll.”
Garth reportedly slowed down his world tours when his children were born so that he could be involved in their lives. However, Garth stated that his youngest child is set to graduate high school this year so the time is right. “It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring,” he noted.
