Garth Brook announces he will tour again

Garth Brooks, American country singer and top-selling recording artist of the last 20 years, has announced that he will return to touring after more than a decade off the road. Brooks, 51, has said he would play a world tour next year largely because his three daughters are now older. “It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring,” Brooks told Good Morning America The singer has not yet given details on when the tour would start and in which cities he would perform. Brooks retired from recording new music and touring in 2001 after eight studio albums, saying at the time he would leave music until his youngest daughter turned 18. He has sold over 125 million albums and is best known for hits such as “The Thunder Rolls” and “Unanswered Prayers” from the early 1990s. Brooks has played the occasional show and benefit concert during his retirement but never toured. In 2009, he began performing concerts in Las Vegas. Brooks released a box set “Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences” on November 28, which debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard album chart last week.
