Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood to Headline Live Concert Event on CBS on April 1

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.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
