Watch out Nashville - Garth Brooks is set to move to the music city

Nashville will be shining even brighter when two major stars arrive to town. Yesterday, Trisha Yearwood announced that she and Garth Brooks are moving to Nashville in an interview with CMT.

"I have loved living in Oklahoma," Yearwood said. "It's been a great place to raise our girls, and the thing I'll miss the most is that I've made some of the best friends I'll ever have. But we'll always be best friends."

Brooks' youngest daughter is moving away to college, leaving Garth and Trisha by themselves in their Oklahoma homestead. Now they are ready to hang their hat in the music city.

"There's an energy about Nashville that I love and I miss. And it's so awesome right now. It has a new energy that's so cool," Yearwood said. "And it makes sense because it's been a bit of a challenge to not live there and to have to fly in and out for work."

Having relocated to Nashville will help Garth Brooks make plans for this 2014 return to the concert stage. Fans will be excited to see the "Friends in Low Places" singer back up on the stage doing what he does best - provide entertainment and a musical journey.
