Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are aiming to make social distancing a bit more enjoyable this week with a live television special.
The superstar couple will appear on the new primetime special, Garth & Trisha Live! on CBS on Wednesday, April 1. Airing 9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT, the special will feature Brooks and Yearwood performing live from their home recording studio, Studio G.
In an effort to send a message that “we’re all in this together,” the couple will share songs and stories in hopes to bring comfort to fans during these times of uncertainty.
Fans hoping to send in song requests for the couple can tune into Brooks’ weekly Facebook Live show, Inside Studio G, on Monday, March 30 for details. The news of the primetime special comes just days after the pair hosted a Facebook Live concert that ended up crashing the social media platform multiple times throughout the live stream.
“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 Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.
“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,” said 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.”
CBS assured fans that the special will be filmed with “minimal crew practicing social distancing” and that the crew will take “extensive safety precautions” when filming.
