Country mega-star Garth Brooks sat down with Robin Roberts during “Good Morning America” on Monday, and he took the opportunity to announce his upcoming world tour.
Previously, Brooks had been vague about his touring prospects, but he opted to finally make the announcement many of his fans were thrilled to hear.
“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. “I can’t believe I just did that but you are a doll.”

Nashville, TN… (December 2, 2013)… Country Music superstar Trace Adkins has been invited to headline the Great American Outdoor Show presented by NRA Country. The concert will take place on Saturday, February 8th during
the first Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex.
The ticketed event will take place in the complex's Large Arena. Tickets are $30 for stadium seating/$35 for floor seating and can be purchased HERE beginning
Celebrating the outdoor traditions treasured by millions of
Americans and their families, the Great American Outdoor Show debuts February 1-9, 2014. Hundreds of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy nine days and
650,000 square feet of shooting, hunting, fishing, camping and boating exhibits, plus, evening events and interactive displays at the country's largest sports and outdoor show. Visit Great American Outdoor Show for the latest news and information about the event.
The Canadian sibling trio High Valley marked their
U.S. debut in November with the release of their very first EP Rescue You. The chivalrous title track debuted exclusively on SiriusXM's The Highway and is being spun as an On The Horizon pick. They released the video to that title track exclusively to The Highway. The video can be seen here.
Eric Church's camp released another teaser video for his highly anticipated February 11th release The Outsiders. With each new video, it seems EC is building up excitement for new music among his loyal fan base (although personally I wonder if it is too much hype/ego and I consider myself a big EC fan). To me, this video is about Eric falling as a result of his playing too long on the Flatts' tour and Taylor rising. But it reminds you not to discount Eric, he is fighting "the good fight" doing things the way he wants to and doing it successfully.
Atlantic/WMN's Brett Eldredge, Columbia's Tyler Farr, Republic Nashville's Cassadee Pope, Valory's Thomas Rhett and Warner Bros./WAR's Charlie Worsham are the CRS 2014 New Faces of Country Music Show performers.
The event will be held Friday, February 21st at the Nashville Convention Center. It is co-sponsored by the Academy of Country Music and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Seated admission is still available. CRS registration is $499 and is currently available here.
