Garth Brooks roared back onto the music scene in a big way in late 2013 with plans to launch his biggest tour ever in 2014. Garth's new six-CD/2-DVD box set, Blame It All on My Roots , was released exclusively to Walmart as part of the store's Black Friday offerings and earned Garth his ninth career #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. He performed many of the project's 44 cover songs in his live, one-man show at the Wynn Las Vegas, which wrapped up a four-year run this year. Garth treated fans to a live performance of that show in the two-hour CBS special, Garth Brooks: Live from Las Vegas , in November.

In December, Garth confirmed plans for a massive, three-year concert tour he promises will make every other tour he's done look small. Garth had vowed to stay off the road until his youngest daughter, Allie , started college in fall 2014. Look for him to hit the road sometime after Allie's first semester begins.  

Garth will ring in 2014 playing shows with a full band at the Wynn Las Vegas.
