    Welcome To The Internet Garth Brooks

    The top dog of '90s country is coming out of retirement with a new album, huge tour, and — finally — digital sales.

    ‘90s country titan Garth Brooks has abandoned retirement. He’ll release his first album of new material in more than a decade this year, he announced today at a press conference in Nashville.

    Brooks has sold more than 134 million albums internationally since his 1989 debut, but his catalogue has not been available for sale or streaming online. That changes now.

    Brooks isn't all the way up to speed with the social media age just yet, though.

    He's yet to launch an official Twitter account or Facebook page.

    Brooks also confirmed that he’ll embark on a world tour and announce initial dates on July 15.
