Garth Brooks speaks on stage at the 49th annual Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 6, 2014, in Las Vegas.

Garth Brooks' big announcement yesterday came to a halting stop before it even happened.

It's been moved to Thursday at 12 NOON EST but some are speculating the delay is due to the situation happening with his Dublin shows in Ireland.

After five shows sold out completely at Croke Park, city officials reported they only are supposed to hold three shows total there a year.

Now they're trying to figure things out but Garth has one thing to say about it: “For us, it is five shows or none at all.” To choose which shows to do and which shows not to do, would be like asking to choose one child over another. However this plays out, Ireland has my heart and always will.”

The Irish Times reports, "The singer thanked Irish people for making him feel welcome and said he had “faith that Dublin City Council will make the best decision for the people of Ireland."'
