CBS announces ‘Garth & Trisha Live’ concert event

Event will air live from their home studio on April 1st

Garth Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, will appear in the new primetime special Garth & Trisha Live! on Wednesday, April 1st from 9-10 pm live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network. In the special, Brooks and Yearwood will perform live from their home recording studio, Studio G, providing an intimate concert for viewers looking for the comfort and shared joy of music during this difficult time. They will bring their unique blend of casual style, remarkable chemistry and shared love of music to a television audience, emphasizing the message that “we’re all in this together.”

Brooks will share details about how viewers can make song requests for the special on his weekly Facebook Live show, Inside Studio G, on Monday, March 30th. On Monday, March 23rd, Brooks and Yearwood hosted a casual, at-home concert from Studio G. Over 5.2 million viewers watched it in a matter of hours, repeatedly crashing the popular internet site and spurring the idea for the Network 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,” the pair state.

“After we saw Garth and Trisha crash Facebook, we reached out to them about bringing this Studio G to a larger audience in a safe and exciting way,” shares Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events. “With Garth and Trisha coupled with the power of broadcast television, anything can happen, making this an event not to be missed.”

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.

The event is produced by Horse of Troy Productions, Inc.
