After Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood broke the Internet on March 23 during their at-home concert on Inside Studio G via Facebook Live, the tandem has decided to take their talents to CBS on April 1 for a prime-time TV special, Garth & Trisha Live.
During the special, Garth and Trisha will perform live from their home recording studio. Garth will share details about how viewers can make song requests for the special on Inside Studio G on March 30.
More than 5.2 million viewers watched Garth and Trisha’s concert on Inside Studio G on March 23, repeatedly crashing the site, which spurred the idea for the CBS special.
“We’re seeing how big things can be when we all do them as one. In addition to the special, we and CBS will donate $1 million to charities to be determined, combating the COVID-19 virus,” said Garth and Trisha.
Garth & Trisha Live will be filmed without a live studio audience. The special will involve a minimal crew practicing social distancing and will be filmed with extensive safety precautions in place.
Garth & Trisha Live will air on April 1, 8–9 p.m. CT (delayed PT), on CBS.
