Country singer Garth Brooks announced in 2000 that he was retiring to focus on his family. He did just that, recording no new material and not performing, until 2005, when he came out of retirement to perform for several charity causes. Then from 2009 to 2012 he took a residency at the Wynn Las Vegas, and has performed several times since then. In 2014, he released his first studio album since 2001’s Scarecrow.
