Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood Announce New Christmas Special

Country superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have announced a new Christmas special, “Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event.”

Brooks and Yearwood will take requests from viewers for tunes. They will then sing the seasonal songs “for viewers looking for the comfort and shared joy of music during the holidays,” according to a press release.

“Our viewers loved reaching out directly to Garth and Trisha to request their favorite hits back when the pandemic first hit,” said Jack Sussman, CBS executive vice president of specials, music and live events. “It brought some fun and joy directly into their living rooms as they were hunkered down with their families.”

He added, “Now, nine long months later, who better to bring some holiday magic [by] performing some of the greatest holiday songs of all time than Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood?”

The program will follow the same format of the successful “Garth and Trisha: Live By Request!” special that premiered on CBS in April.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the program will be produced with minimal crew, and no live audience members will be in attendance. “Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event” will air on CBS on December 20, at 8:30 pm ET.
