Garth Brooks is making a rare appearance outside of his residency at Wynn Las Vegas tonight at the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, Canada. The superstar took time to speak with press prior to tonight’s event.
He revealed that he isn’t ready to work on new music or hit the road anytime soon, but it’s on his radar.
“It’s always been about the babies. Our youngest is a junior in senior high school now. Our oldest, we just celebrated her 20th,” Brooks explained (quote via The Vancouver Sun). “If God lets us do it and everything goes well, I would love to tour again.”
He plans to bring his wife along for the ride.
“I’d love to tour again with Miss [Trisha] Yearwood and have no guilt. But I’m still two years away.”
If his one of his daughters, Allie Colleen, continues down the musical path she’s on, the tour could become a family affair.
“My youngest has got it. She’s got the bug but she’s got the goods, too,” he said. “She starts playing and singing, I have to get up and leave because I spent my whole life crying. It seems the older I get, I cry at commercials.”
Brooks, who holds the title of the top-selling solo artist in U.S. history, has no plans to talk her out of pursuing a singing career.
“My Dad told me to get a real job and now when you see that it is actually paying the bills and paying for college, you can’t tell your kids you can’t make a living at it if they try hard enough.”
