Last week, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood performed an intimate concert of cover songs via Facebook Live; the show drew 3.4 million viewers, enough to crash the site several times during their show. During the concert, Brooks & Yearwood also took viewer requests, performing a rendition of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow,” from A Star Is Born.
The concert’s massive viewership caught the attention of CBS, and the couple inked a deal to star in a prime-time CBS special, which will air live on CBS from their home recording studio.
Garth & Trisha: Live By Request! will air April 1 on CBS at 9 p.m. EST.
Brooks, Yearwood and CBS will also donate $1 million to organizations that are helping with coronavirus relief efforts.
