TULSA - He didn't announce any tour dates - not yet - but country music superstar Garth Brooks did announce he's signed with Sony Music and RCA Records Label Nashville, and that his music will be available for digital download for the first time in the near future.
He said during a live news conference, webcast on the GarthBrooks.com website, that he will announce tour dates beginning next week.
His deal with Sony means there will be new recordings soon, though the producer and engineer that produced his famous album catalog will not be involved.
Brooks didn't name a target date for the new CD to drop.
The digital music will be available in a few weeks, exclusively on the GarthBrooks.com website.
Brooks has not released a new CD since "Scarecrow" in 2001.
