CBS To Air Garth Brooks Live Broadcast Of One-Man Show
NASHVILLE (CBSMiami) – Country music superstar Garth Brooks will perform a rare live broadcast concert special on CBS in November.
“Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas” will broadcast live from the Wynn Las Vegas live on Nov. 29.
The television concert event will feature Brooks’ final performance of his critically acclaimed one man show, which has played to sold out audiences for the past three years.
The show will feature Brooks in a very intimate setting, playing his guitar as he takes the audience through the musical journey that led him to become the number one selling solo artist in U.S. history. He will share his experiences listening to different musicians throughout his life, starting with the music of Merle Haggard and George Jones. Then, other musicians who influenced him like Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Otis Redding, Bob Seger, George Strait and many, many, more. Throughout the show, Garth will perform some of their classic songs and show you how they influenced his greatest hits.
“Blame it all on my roots,” said Brooks, “This is the soundtrack of my life. Growing up the last of six kids, music was the life blood of our family and as you can imagine, mom, dad, and each kid had his or her own favorite stuff and it all funneled down to me.”
Brooks came out of retirement in 2009 for a series of occasional gigs at Steve Wynn’s invitation. Brooks formally ended that run after three years, but has played occasionally since.
The broadcast will be his final performance of the show, which has mostly been Brooks with just his guitar exploring his musical influences with fans.
Brooks has mostly been out of music since 2001, when he became a stay-at-home dad. But fans remain fervent, helping to set a record viewership for the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year when Brooks performed with George Strait.
