NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Garth Brooks is taking his intimate one-man Las Vegas show to live television.

A news release issued Monday said CBS will broadcast Brooks' performance at the Wynn Las Vegas live on November 29.

Brooks came out of retirement in 2009 for a series of occasional gigs at Steve Wynn's invitation. Brooks formally ended that run after three years, but has played occasionally since then.

The broadcast will be his final performance of the show, which has mostly been Brooks with just his guitar exploring his musical influences with fans.

Brooks has mostly been out of music since 2001, when he became a stay-at-home dad. But fans remain fervent, helping to set a record viewership for the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year when Brooks performed with George Strait
