Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are donating $1 million to coronavirus-related charities and relief efforts, and will perform live from their home recording studio on CBS.
“Garth and Trisha Live!” will air Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET, according to CBS News.
“After we saw Garth and Trisha crash Facebook, we reached out to them about bringing this Studio G to a larger audience in a safe and exciting way,” CBS’s Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events Jack Sussman told CBS News. “With Garth and Trisha coupled with the power of broadcast television, anything can happen, making this an event not to be missed.”
“We’re seeing how big things can be when we all do them as one,” Brooks and Yearwood say in a statement.
Their CBS special will not have a live audience, the crew will practice social distancing and the network said they will be taking extensive safety precautions in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple and CBS will donate $1 million to charities for coronavirus relief.
