Garth and George to Perform at ACM’s
For the first time ever, George Strait and Garth Brooks will perform together! It’s all coming up at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on April 7. Brooks and Strait are both recipients of the ACM’s Artist of the Decade award for the 1990s and the 2000s, respectively. According to CMT News:
Their performance will celebrate the renaming of the award to the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade award in honor of the iconic figure and longtime producer of the ACM Awards.
In today’s world of country music, where everyone seems to be collaborating with everyone, you would think that somewhere along the way the two of them would have performed together ‘sometime.’ I guess they haven’t.
I for one am anxious to see the performance. George is a ‘stand and deliver’ kind of a guy and Garth was always one to be jumping around. Should be fun to see and hear the get together!
The ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on CBS.
