Garth Brooks: Music and TV Special Announces Return

    November 29, 2013

One of the flashiest, biggest-selling country acts of all time is back with new music on Black Friday. Garth Brooks retired in 2001 to spend more time with his three daughters, and the 51-year-old country star is ready to hit the big stage again now that his youngest is preparing for her first year of college.

It looks like the world is ready; although Garth Brooks isn’t on Twitter, there are numerous Garth Brooks fan pages with thousands of followers. There is even an account solely dedicated to bring Garth Brooks back.

Brooks is keeping much of the details to himself on the particulars of his comeback, but he has just released a box set entitled Blame It All on my Roots: Five Decades of Influences. The limited, Walmart-exclusive box set contains six CDs, two DVDs and a 68-page photo booklet.

According to, the CDs hold Brooks’ smash hits and covers of songs by his favorite artists in various genres, including an album that features country music classics performed by Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood. The DVDs contain a live recording of his current three-year residency show at Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino as well as a compilation of Brooks’ videos.

Tonight, Garth Brooks shows his last concert at Vegas at 8 p.m. on CBS.
