Garth & Trisha Live for the Holidays


Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood will be helping to get you into the holiday spirit with their television special. The hour-long virtual show, titled Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event, will air live on Sunday, Dec. 20 at 8:30pm (ET) on CBS and it will stream simultaneously on CBS All Access and telecast once again on CBS later that night at 11pm (ET).

The couple was approached about the holiday special after the success of their live concert on April 1. This time, they will perform seasonal tunes live, by request from Studio G inside their home. Due to the coronavirus restrictions, the show will not be filmed before an audience, and a minimal crew will be utilized and extensive protocol will be followed.

Fans will be submitting their requests for songs. Brooks has been providing instructions for submission during episodes of his weekly Facebook Live show Inside Studio G. 

Jack Sussman, CBS executive vice president of specials, music and live events, is excited for the couple’s country-style Christmas special.

“Our viewers loved reaching out directly to Garth and Trisha to request their favorite hits back when the pandemic first hit,” he said in a statement. “It brought some fun and joy directly into their living rooms as they were hunkered down with their families. 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?”
