It’s been 10 years since Garth Brooks‘ last all-new studio album hit shelves, and four since his ‘The Ultimate Hits’ compilation record, which featured two new tracks. Finally, Brooks gives his dedicated fans some idea of when he’ll begin work on a new album … Though, unfortunately that won’t be for a few more years.

“Not until all the babies are out [of the house],” Brooks tells PARADE when asked whether he’s gone into the studio yet. “I’m going to raise them and then hit it with a vengeance. We’ve got another three or four years.”

Despite keeping his family at the forefront, Brooks hasn’t been totally out of the spotlight as a country icon. As of late, he’s been rocking concerts for his residency at Wynn Las Vegas, which runs from now through the beginning of November. “It’s fantastic. But it’s just me and a guitar onstage,” Brooks says of the Vegas run.

The ‘Friends in Low Places’ hitmaker admits that he still gets nervous playing in front of all of those people, even though he’s been one of country’s biggest names for over 20 years. “My wife [Trisha Yearwood] asks me why I get so nervous,” Brooks spills. “I say, ‘Because I don’t know why it works; I don’t know why they’re so sweet to me.'”

Garth Brooks was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame during their 42nd annual induction ceremony and awards show back in June.
