WYCD Hoedown 2018 ANNOUNCED: Dierks Is Coming! Details | LineupTickets | 2017 Recap

Superstar and 2012 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee  Garth Brooks has been added to the already-stellar lineup of artists scheduled to perform on the upcoming Teachers Rock television special.

The program airs at 8pm ET from the Nokia Theatre in L.A. on Friday, August 17 on CBS.

The concert will also feature performances from country stars Carrie Underwood and Dierks Bentley, as well as pop group fun. and singer Josh Groban. In addition, Maroon 5, Meryl Street and Glee‘s Matthew Morrison will offer personal testimonials on their favorite school memories.

Teachers Rock is a charity concert that will raise money for teachers and education. The proceeds from the LA show will benefit three nonprofit organizations: DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that raises money for classroom supplies, the hunger-relief foundation Feeding America and Teach for America, a program that trains recent college graduates to lead a classroom.

The Country Music Hall of Fame this spring announced that Brooks was among it’s 2012 inductees (alongside Connie Smith and Hargus ‘Pig’ Robbins). Brooks was also in the news for selling out his gig at the Calgary Stampede last month in less than a minute. He’s also been hinting at possibly returning to the stage on a more regular basis in the coming years.

Note that the airdate for Teachers Rock has been updated to Friday, August 17 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS.
