NEW YORK -

Garth Brooks is going on tour with his wife Trisha Yearwood next year.

The country music superstar made the announcement on Good Morning America Monday morning when anchor Robin Roberts asked if he planned to go on tour anytime soon.

"You know what, since it's you and since we've had a history forever, let's announce it. We're going on a world tour in 2014," Brooks told Roberts. "I can't believe I just did that but you are a doll."

Brooks, 52, appeared on the morning show, guitar in hand, to promote his new album, "Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences."  The six-disc set includes covers, his greatest hits and a DVD of his show at the Wynn in Las Vegas.

The decision to go on tour comes just as Brooks' youngest daughter is set to graduate high school in the spring.

He told Roberts his decision to do a world tour next year came down to the fact that he is now largely a "phone call dad."
