    Garth Brooks LIVE; CBS Special

    Did anyone catch this speical on Friday night? OMG! It was great. I haven't been that entertained in a long time. Garth nailed it. He performed from the stage in Vegas. To stand on a stage for 2 hours with nothing but your voice and guitar for 2 hours on LIVE television is just incedible. He had NO backup of any kind. No singers, no other musicians....unreal. ( Except Trisha joined him for 2 songs.) She was great too! Not many in the business can touch her vocals....maybe Carrie, but her voice is still awesome.

    Garth Brooks special doubles Gaga ratings | Inside TV | EW.com
    (Really good ratings.)

    I don't know if it's available ON Demand, but I would try.

    Garth does a tribute to all those performers he has admired and learned from since childhood, including, Strait, Haggard, Simon and Garfunkle, James Taylor, Billy Joel, etc. and told amusing stories about his family and growing up.

    Granted he seemed like a lunatic most of the time, but he sure was entertaining! lol

    I DVR'd it, and we watched it over the weekend. And yes, it was superb :-)

    Sheldon Cooper: Woman, you're playing with forces beyond your ken

    Penny: Yeah, well your Ken can kiss my Barbie.

    I'll keep my eyes open for a way to see that show. I feel like it may come out on DVD. It got such good ratings, they should rerun it.

    It's available at CBS' website. Select Shows > Movies & Specials > Garth Brooks, Live from Las Vegas. (I started playing it just to be sure :-) It's 90 minutes long, which sounds about right for a two-hour show without commercials.)

    I have to add something to my first post. I now recall that Jennifer Nettles is another VERY talented performer who can stand on a stage with only a guitar or even just her voice and render an awesome performance. I forgot about her. She's another very naturally gifted talent.
