Garth Brooks may have made his musical comeback after a 14-year hiatus, but that doesn’t mean the country singer wasn’t nervous about it.
At least, that’s what he told Gayle King in an interview with CBS This Morning on Friday.
According to Brooks, he was “scared to death” when he decided to return to music. But, to his surprise, he found that “the people were so nice.”

In his own words: “The country is the best place to be. Because, one, you have the most loyal following, and they will be waiting for you.”
Brooks, 59, is said to have taken a hiatus from the music scene to raise his three daughters: Taylor Mayne Pearl, 28; Auguste Anna, 27 years old; and Allie Colleen, 24.

“The country music audience has given you everything. Now you just ask them, ‘I’m going to come home and raise my babies,’” he told King. “The big surprise was never to think, you’re going to be able to come home. Because when you don’t know why they’re showing up, you don’t know if they’ll show up again.”
