Great American Country, which has been “The Home of Garth Brooks” this fall, will broadcast the world premiere of the artist’s new video with Huey Lewis, covering the latter’s “Workin’ For A Livin’” on Monday.
Debuting Dec. 17 at 9: 30 p.m. (ET), the video features Brooks and Lewis in the center of the racing action at Atlanta Motor Speedway, performing on a track as cars zoom past.
For two weeks, GAC will be the exclusive destination on-air and online for Brooks’s fans to view “Workin’ For A Livin.’” After its premiere period, “Workin’ For A Livin” will be incorporated into GAC’s normal video programming blocks.
Viewers can see how director Jon Small keeps the duo intact thanks to camera tricks and computer animation when GAC premieres the behind-the-scenes 30-minute Garth Brooks Behind the Video Workin’ For A Livin’, on Jan. 4 (8 p.m. ET).
“Garth’s collaboration with Huey Lewis on the video and making-of special showcases the best of what his fans love about him,” said Sarah Trahern, GAC senior vice president of programming, in a statement. “As Garth continues to bring the best of his music to his fans, GAC is the premier destination on television and online for fans to see his work."
GAC debuted Garth Brooks: One Man, One City, One Night on Nov. 23. The 90-minute show was edited from Brooks's Nov. 14 finale of nine concerts in Kansas City. The Scripps's service holds the rights to the show for a year, according to network officials.
