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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
