Garth Brooks Will Tour In 2014

It has been over a decade since country music legend Garth Brooks toured the nation, and in that time a lot has changed in the world of music. Still, it’s hard to find any country station that doesn’t have at least a few hits from his iconic catalog still in regular rotation. He’s proof you […]
