Garth Brooks Sets Live CBS Special for Nov. 29

Did you know that Garth Brooks has partnered with CBS for a live broadcast of his final performance at the Wynn Las Vegas on November 29th?

The special will be called, Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas.

If you didn’t know, Brooks has been playing solo performances at the resorts Encore Theater for three years now. His set list offers some of the music that influenced his career in country music. Such as Merle Haggard and George Jones, as well as Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Otis Redding, Bob Seger, George Strait and more.

Brooks will be singing some of his own hits that were inspired by those singers mentioned above. Between 1989 and 2007, Brooks charted 36 Top 10 country hits. Many of those singles, such as “The Dance” and “Friends in Low Places,” have become country classics.
“Blame it all on my roots,” said Brooks. “This is the soundtrack of my life. Growing up the last of six kids, music was the lifeblood of our family, and as you can imagine, mom, dad and each kid had his or her own favorite stuff, and it all funneled down to me.”

Brooks has only performed occasionally since retiring in 2001 to raise his children. In 2008, he only played five concerts in two days in Los Angeles in order to raise donations to prevent fire disasters. And in 2010, he sold out nine concerts in Nashville to raise money for area flood relief.

In 2012, he was named the best-selling artist of the last two decades by Billboard, Nielsen and SoundScan, with 68.5 million albums sold. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame the same year.
