by Joe Rutland

Grab a cup of coffee or drink of your choice because country music legend Garth Brooks is making a pre-Thanksgiving appearance on ABC’s “The View.”

Brooks, who has appeared on the morning gab-fest before, will perform a song on Wednesday, Nov. 25, while chatting it up with co-hosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Ana Navarro.

This will not be the first time Brooks has made a visit to the show before Thanksgiving. Back in 2017, he shared with the co-hosts thoughts about lip-synching songs and marriage to country music singer Trisha Yearwood.

Meanwhile, Brooks has been making the talk-show rounds recently as his latest album, “FUN,” was recently released. In addition to that new record, a three-CD disc set, “TRIPLE LIVE DELUXE,” is out. It features 30 songs encompassing his three-plus-year “Garth Brooks World Tour With Trisha Yearwood.”

He actually filled in for an episode of “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” Brooks shares a picture of himself on the set with his fans via Twitter.

In addition to all that, the singer has been prepping along with Yearwood for the upcoming holiday show, “Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Special,” which airs on Dec. 20 on CBS.

“Our viewers loved reaching out directly to Garth and Trisha to request their favorite hits back when the pandemic first hit. It brought some fun and joy directly into their living rooms as they were hunkered down with their families,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events/Alternative & Reality for CBS.

“Now, nine long months later, who better to bring some holiday magic, performing some of the greatest holiday songs of all time, than Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.”

A Different Thanksgiving Awaits Brooks, Yearwood

Thanksgiving will definitely take on a different feel this year for Brooks and Yearwood. Much like other families during these COVID-19 times, the couple is planning to have a socially-distanced holiday this year.

Recently, Yearwood opened up about not having any friends or family around the couple’s dining table.

“It’s hard not to get together for Thanksgiving,” Yearwood wrote. “But like so many of you, we’re staying home. And not having our normal family Thanksgiving gathering, in hopes of being together again next year.”

As for her husband, Brooks is a seven-time CMA Entertainer of the Year and a winner of nine Diamond Awards for albums at more than 10 million album sales each. He remains the No. 1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, certified by the RIAA with 157 million album sales.
