CBS TO BROADCAST "GARTH BROOKS: LIVE IN LA!" LIVE IN CONCERT FROM STAPLES CENTER, FRIDAY, JAN. 25

Brooks' Concert is One of Five He'll Give Over a Two-Day Period, Which Sold Out in 59 Minutes, That Will Raise Money for F.I.R.E. (Fire Intervention Relief Effort) in California

CBS will broadcast GARTH BROOKS: LIVE IN LA! from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Friday, Jan. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT). The event is the first of five unprecedented performances Brooks will play over two days - a feat believed to have never before been attempted by any artist.

As part of his first show on Friday night, Brooks will craft a one-hour special for the Network, allowing viewers unique access to the kick-off of his extraordinary two-day, five-show extravaganza.

Brooks will perform two concerts on Friday and three on Saturday, Jan. 26, all at STAPLES Center. Selling 85,000 tickets in less than an hour, Brooks is the only artist in STAPLES Center history to sell out five concerts in one hour and play five concerts in two days.

All proceeds from the five concerts, organized by Brooks and AEG (owners of STAPLES Center), and sponsored by American Express and official media sponsor the Los Angeles Times, will be donated to the "Southern California 2008 Fire Intervention Relief Effort (F.I.R.E.)," a campaign of the McCormick Tribune Foundation. The funds will be granted to agencies providing aid to victims and the first responders of the Los Angeles and San Diego wildfires in addition to providing financial assistance to California firefighting departments and organizations in need of additional or replacement firefighting equipment to better perform their heroic duties. The Foundation will also be responsible for granting administration and recordkeeping.

During the concert, viewers will have the opportunity to contribute to the campaign by calling 1-800-713-2065 or going to http://www.mccormicktribune.org/2008firerelief.

Certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as the Number One selling solo artist in U.S. history, Garth Brooks has sold in excess of 123 million albums. He is the only solo artist in RIAA history to have six albums top the 10 million mark. This year Brooks became the first artist to put out a simultaneous edition of his latest collection for a charitable cause. Nov. 6, 2007 saw the launch of the pink edition of The Ultimate hits available only at the Susan G. Komen website. His body of work - including the groundbreaking No Fences, Ropin' The Wind, The Hits and Double Live - propelled country music as a genre to the front pages of newspapers worldwide and the covers of magazines, to the point where Forbes declared on its cover, "Country Conquers Rock" and featured Brooks in a major music piece. According to the RIAA, Garth Brooks is the top-selling solo artist of the 20th century.

Brooks has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow on an artist, including: two Grammys, 17 American Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, five World Music Awards, 12 People's Choice Awards and 36 Billboard Music Awards. He was named Artist of the �90s at the 1997 Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, received the Artist Achievement Award at the 1997 Billboard Music Awards, and was named Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards in 2000 and the Academy of Country Music Awards in 1999.
