Garth Brooks Going On Tour Is Just What The Country World Needs

Call up your friends in low places! While Garth’s announcement that he was going on a 2014 tour was completely shocking and out of nowhere, more than anything it was a breath of fresh air.

Don’t get me wrong — I like the pop-turned-country stars just as much as the next girl. However, as a country music fan who grew up on “Papa Loves Mama,” there couldn’t be better news than Garth Brooks heading back on tour after retiring to focus on family 13 years ago.

Garth Brooks On Tour Is Best News Ever

In 2000, Garth called it quits on touring to raise his three daughters. In 2009, he began playing a one-man show in Las Vegas, but didn’t bring the band and kept the performances limited. However, he announced on Good Morning America on Dec. 9 that now that the girls are all grown up (“our baby’s a senior in high school”) and that “Miss Yearwood is ok with it” — yes, his wife Trisha Yearwood — he’s heading back on the road!

Musicians like Garth don’t exist anymore. A 52, it’s no secret that’s he’s an experienced artist who knows a thing or two about selling records and tickets. One thing he does is keep all of his tickets priced under $25, allowing for more fans to come see him. In a time of $150 nose bleed tickets, that’s something that really means something to fans.

Garth is exactly what the country world needs. In a world of Florida Georgia Line and Nelly collaborations (not saying I don’t jam out to “Cruise”), country has started to lose the charm it once had — a feel good, down south, relaxing with your family song.

With less George Straits and more Eric Churches, country music is slowly changing. It’s not a bad thing, and it’s not a new thing. It’s natural for a genre to progress into something else over time. However, I miss the classic country world, and Garth going back on tour gives me a little ping of hope that that’s not a completely lost cause.

Plus, Garth is bringing along Trisha on tour — the original Tim and Faith are taking the stage. And I couldn’t be happier.

How do you feel, HollywoodLifers? Let me know.

I just left his final concert in Greensboro NC as always his concert was amazing. His energy seems to feed off his fans responses and just continues to grow through out the concert. It was a wonderful evening and I wish there was another concert date in a hundred fifty miles on his schedule and I would be there.
