After performing a one-hour show that attracted more than 3 million viewers and caused Facebook Live to crash multiple times, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are doing another live concert — this time on CBS.

On Wednesday, April 1, the couple will again perform from its home studio and respond to requests previously submitted by fans, according to Rolling Stone.

The one-hour primetime special “Garth & Trisha: Live By Request!” will air at 8 p.m. MT.

Fans can learn how to make song requests during Brooks’ new weekly Facebook Live show, “Inside Studio G,” on March 30, according to Rolling Stone.

The CBS special marks the couple’s second concert during the coronavirus pandemic. The first was on March 23, when the couple was off-the-cuff, fielding requests from fans and performing covers of “Amazing Grace,” “Hallelujah,” Linda Ronstadt’s “Long, Long Time” and “Shallow” from the movie “A Star is Born.’

In addition to the CBS special, the network is joining Brooks and Yearwood to donate $1 million to charities fighting the novel coronavirus, according to Deadline.

“After we saw Garth and Trisha crash Facebook, we reached out to them about bringing this Studio G to a larger audience in a safe and exciting way,” said Jack Sussman, the CBS executive vice president of specials, music and live events, in a statement to CBS News. “With Garth and Trisha coupled with the power of broadcast television, anything can happen, making this an event not to be missed.”

The special won’t involve a live studio audience, and the minimal crew involved will practice social distancing and other safety precautions, according to CNN
