Garth Brooks announced his 2014 world tour this morning on Good Morning America. In an interview with Robin Roberts, he said, “It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring. All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood.”

In 2000, Garth announced he was retiring from recording and performing and said he’d stay home to help raise his three daughters. Now that they’re older and Garth says he’s mainly a “phone call dad,” the superstar is ready to return to the spotlight.

“Our baby is a senior in high school,” he said. “My children are off on their own so the guilt of not being there…I’m a phone call dad now. ‘Hey Dad, I love you, can I borrow some money?’ ”

Garth was on GMA to promote his new six-disc set, Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences. That’s also the same title of the Great American Country special, which airs Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8/7c. Watch a sneak peek >>
