It sounds like Garth Brooks has something very interesting in store for fans in the next year. In a new interview with “Variety,” the singer revealed that he and wife Trisha Yearwood are looking to record a live duets record.
Garth says he got the idea from a fan question written to Trisha, mentioning a duets record and asking if she and Garth ever thought of doing a full duets concert. “I’m looking at her going, 'No, wait a minute, let’s combine the two ideas. What if we cut a live duet record in front of a live audience? And that’s how we do our duet record?’” he says. “And then all of a sudden you have a live greatest hits duet record and people get to watch how a record is made, so you kind of bring the studio to the stage…cut things live right there in front of people.”
He adds, “I think it’s an awesome idea and I think it’s something we’re probably gonna do. And we’re talking about doing it with the Ryman down here in Nashville.” As for when the concert/album will happen, Garth shares, “probably within the next year or so I think,” noting they plan to find a “window” between his “Stadium Tour” and Trisha’s own tour.
Garth also gave a little hint about his upcoming “Stadium Tour,” and it seems there probably won’t be that many shows for fans to see. “We’re not touring as hard as we did the last three years. The last three years it was like 395 shows on the tour,” he says. “This one is gonna be really spread out, just individual nights, like 10 a year. And it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
