After more than 10 years off the road, and mostly away from the music business, is Garth Brooks ready to come out of retirement? The answer is a resounding ... maybe!

The singer sent out a cryptic message to his fans which said, "The sevens have aligned. It has begun…Thank you for believing…love, g."

His website also has the message, "It has begun ...," without giving any more details.

Adding to the mystery is an article from Country Music Tattle Tale, who say they have learned exclusively that the 51-year-old will both release a new album and hit the road in 2014, to coincide with a TV special directed by famed film director Martin Scorsese. While the country music superstar and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, have both hinted that they will release an album of duets, CMTT claim that his next project will be a solo album.

Brooks has always said he would return to show business when his daughters were all out of the house. With his youngest, Allie, already 17, it looks like that date is looming closer than ever.

“It’s always been about the babies,” he explained in 2012. “If God lets us do it and everything goes well, I would love to tour again.”

Brooks won't stay completely out of the spotlight for the remainder of the year. He has two more shows at the Wynn Las Vegas, in the Encore Theater, on Nov. 8 and 9, and will also perform at the George Jones Tribute Concert on Nov. 22.
