Garth Brooks GAC special, 'Blame It All on My Roots,' salutes musical heroes

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Nov 8, 2013

In a rare behind-the-scenes look at one of the biggest deals in entertainment history, Garth Brooks is offering an inside look at his Las Vegas show with a GAC special, "Garth Brooks: Blame It All on My Roots -- 5 Decades of Influences." The special will premiere Saturday, Nov. 9, only on GAC.

Described as a "musical journey," this special delves into what it took for billionaire businessman Steve Wynn to coax the entertainer out of retirement for a residency at the Wynn Las Vegas. Garth pays tribute to his musical heroes and demonstrates how those songs and artists influenced his life and his music. The special will include exclusive interviews, rare, personal footage and pictures never-before-seen by the public. Fans may also get a hint of what's in store for the superstar performer as rumors continue to circulate that he may record new music and tour again. 

The special comes just three weeks ahead of the singer-songwriter's network TV appearance in his final Vegas concert. "Garth Brooks: Live From Las Vegas," is set to air Friday, Nov. 9 on CBS.
