Garth Brooks is bringing his one-man show into our living rooms tonight with a two-hour TV special at 8:00 on CBS.

Garth Brooks: Live from Las Vegas will broadcast live from the Wynn Las Vegas, where Garth has been performing since 2009. The concert will feature Garth working his way through music that inspired him growing up, including songs from Merle Haggard, George Jones, Bob Seger, James Taylor and many more.

This show brings an end to Garth’s run on the strip and kicks off what should be an interesting year for him which already has rumors of him recording new music and heading back out on tour.

Paisley Dreams Of Clapton

Posted on: November 26th, 2013 by Chris

Brad Paisley has been able to meet and work with most of his guitar heroes but he says there’s still one wish that’s gone unfulfilled.

“I sure love Eric Clapton and one of these days would love to play with him. I haven’t done that yet,” he says. Brad missed a chance to work with Eric when he was asked to perform at his annual guitar festival. “I was invited to do Crossroads Festival this year, and I couldn’t do it. But one of these years I hope to,” Brad says. “I’ve never even met him. So that would be top of mind right now as far as people I haven’t met.”

Odds are Brad will eventually get his wish. Vince Gill, Sheryl Crow and Alison Krauss & Union Station have all worked with Clapton in the past.
