Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood Offer Hope & Music in Primetime Request Show

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood took their “Studio G” performances from Facebook to network TV on Wednesday, with an hour long-request show Garth & Trisha Live!, USA Today reports. The show aired on CBS for a full hour without commercials, with Brooks saying, “This is about requests and getting to play music and to be together — apart — if that makes sense.”

The country superstar also said “Every penny that they’re doing for this is going to go to fight (on) the COVID-19 front line. They’re putting their lives on the line so the rest of us can survive.” The live request show was a lot of fun, with the pair often trading off verses and choruses. Songs included Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide,” Bob Seger’s “Mainstreet,” The SteelDrivers “If It Hadn’t Been For Love,” and the A Star Is Born hit “Shallow.” The pair also did some of their own tunes, like “She’s In Love With the Boy” and “The Dance.”

After Yearwood performed the Little Big Town hit “Girl Crush” she admitted, “I had never sung that one before,” to which Brooks quipped, “A great song’s a great song, no matter what.” After the couple sang the oft-covered Bob Dylan tune “To Make You Feel My Love,” Yearwood said, “That’s our song. That gets me. Can we go to commercial so I can wipe my eyes?”
