What is it about?
The one-hour remotely filmed special will spread the festive cheer as the duo will take requests from their fans through a live-streamed concert. Though Garth and Trisha are supposed to play their best holiday songs the former recently told Billboard that he won’t necessarily stick to it and will focus on what fans demand. “If things get silly and things go to ‘I’ve got friends in low ho ho places,’ I think you can try to stretch to try to get music from an artist you want to hear on a Christmas special.” He also added, “Hopefully, there will be some stuff that we’ve never recorded. We’re just looking at the requests as they come in.”
Garth and Trisha will sit together for the festive special in their recording studio. The event is a follow-up to their CBS special in April which drew more than 5.65 million viewers and also earned a repeat on the network. Additionally, the duo and CBS donated $1 million to charities fighting Covid-19.
Speaking about the event, as published by Billboard, Jack Sussman, EVP Specials, Music & Live Events/Alternative & Reality at CBS said, “Our viewers loved reaching out directly to Garth and Trisha to request their favorite hits back when the pandemic first hit. It brought some fun and joy directly into their living rooms as they were hunkered down with their families,” adding, “Now, nine long months later, who better to bring some holiday magic, performing some of the greatest holiday songs of all time than Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.”
