The night after Garth Brooks releases his new album Scarecrow -- which hits stores November 13th -- CBS will air the first of three Garth Brooks TV specials.

Garth Brooks: Coast to Coast Live will be shown on three consecutive Wednesday nights, with the broadcast beginning in the midst of a live concert from each location. The November 14th show will air live from the Forum in Los Angeles. On November 21st Brooks will perform from the USS Enterprise, the aircraft carrier returning to Norfolk, Va., with servicemen and women who had been stationed in the Middle East. The site for the November 28th show, however, is undisclosed, as are the special guests for all three shows. Brooks is expected to perform songs from his new album as well as past hits.

In between the CBS dates Brooks will also play the Wyo Theater in Sheridan, Wyoming on December 8th and the BellSouth Acuff Theater, in Nashville on the 9th.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
