Garth Brooks Honors Vets on “Good Morning America”; Talks Christmas Album With Trisha Yearwood

In honor of Veterans Day today (Nov. 11), Garth Brooks appeared on Good Morning America in New York to show his support for our military by performing “Belleau Wood,” a track from his 1997 album, Sevens.

Garth co-wrote the poignant track about soldiers in the midst of war who call a Christmas truce and join together on the battlefield to sing “Silent Night.” The song reflects a brief moment in time where peace and the human spirit—no matter their differences—triumphed over battle.

Surrounded by U.S military members in the studio, Garth performed a stirring rendition of the song, honoring all who fight for the freedoms we enjoy today.

Garth also went on to talk about his just-released Christmas album, Christmas Together, with wife Trisha Yearwood, who made a surprise appearance on the show. He also discussed his new boxed set, Garth Brooks: The Ultimate Collection, which is only available at Target and contains 126 songs, including his new album, Gunslinger.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
