Garth Brooks Making Plans to Return to Music??Oct 23, 2012 -- 9:00am
- While an induction into any hall of fame usually points to the winding down of a career, for Garth Brooks, that isn’t accurate. Over the weekend Brooks, along with two others, was inducted into the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame and with that induction came speculation and some may say a confirmation that new music and touring is in the near future for the superstar. Nearly a decade ago, Brooks laid down his incredible career in order to spend time with his daughters and said then when they were out of the house, he would return to music. Now, his youngest daughter is a junior in high school and has his blessing to plan for new music. Of planning his comeback, Brooks says, "We're just going to start. It will be fun.” He goes on to discuss song choice saying, "You talk about songwriters, the great ones can birth a career, but the greatest ones can bring life back into one. So we'll be looking hard for songs just to see what the future might hold for us." Brooks has the support of fans and artists alike. Artist support ranges from George Strait to Jerrod Niemann. Hopefully we’ll be getting more details soon.
- And it was bound to happen. Hayden Panettiere is playing a country artist on the new drama “Nashville” and she’s revealed a desire to record a country album. Panettiere has dabbled in music before with a pop release and said if she ever decided to try music again, it would be in country. She is releasing music on iTunes as her character Juliet Barnes through Big Machine Records, but those won’t get her much of a reputation.
- And some scary events for David Nail over the weekend when he was forced to cancel a show due to some vocal problems. Nail had been tweeting that he was having vocal issues and up until 9:05 the night of the show he had planned to perform, but after his doctor ordered him to see a specialist and advised against performing, Nail reluctantly canceled the show. Apparently Nail’s voice just wouldn’t work. After seeing a specialist the next day, he was able to perform, but is now on vocal rest through Thursday with zero talking allowed. Best wishes to David for a full recovery!
