He's a Country Artist of course, but I think everyone knows and appreciates the talent of Garth Brooks!

I had the pleasure of meeting Garth Brooks years ago in Vegas and actually got to chat with him some. It was just before he married Trisha. He was such a nice, warm friendly down to earth kind of guy. And he's such an amazing performer. I would love to see him perform live! Maybe we can get him to come here to OUR town!

Garth quit touring in 2000 to be home while his children were young, but they're grown up now -- his youngest is a high school senior. He's itching to get working again and he sprung the news on Robin Roberts during Good Morning America. He hinted the news back in October. Despite a few concerts and a Las Vegas residency, this will be the first time he's done a real tour in 14 years.
