Garth Brooks Sets Live CBS Special for Nov. 29

Final Performance in Wynn Las Vegas Will Be Televised

Garth Brooks has partnered with CBS for a live broadcast of his final performance at the Wynn Las Vegas on Nov. 29. The special will be titled Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas.

Brooks has been playing solo performances at the resort’s Encore Theatre for three years. The set list offers some of the music that influenced his musical direction, such as Merle Haggard and George Jones, as well as Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Otis Redding, Bob Seger, George Strait and more.

Brooks will also sing his own hits that were inspired by those influential songs. 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 performed only occasionally since retiring in 2001 to raise his children. In 2008, he played five concerts in two days in Los Angeles 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.
