Garth Brooks is planning his first studio album release since 2003!

He's also planning a major world tour and a television special that will be directed by none other than Martin Scorsese!

No details have been released on the project, but there is speculation that this would be a solo project for Brooks, with a possible duet track with his wife, Trisha Yearwood.

Garth has been preforming at the Wynn in Las Vegas for the past couple of years and has performances there scheduled through November.

How do you think his new project will be received in the country music community?
