Garth Brooks got super emotional when he performed his acoustic rendition of “Belleau Wood” during Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event.

Tears began to flow when Brooks performed the track from his 1997 album, Sevens. Although Yearwood stepped away giving Brooks his special moment, both Brooks and Yearwood became overcome with emotions while he performed the song. 

“We always do an abbreviated version of this song,” Brooks explained. “I don’t know how long it has been since I’ve played the whole version, but if it’s not too much for you guys, I’d like to play the whole song. I love this whole story.”

“That song is so beautiful, oh gosh the message is so beautiful,” Yearwood passionately shared.

The song was written about a Christmas ceasefire during World War I.

Watch the performance below.

Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event first aired on Sunday (Dec. 20).

The Holiday Concert Event follows the couple’s first CBS all-request show, which took place early in the pandemic.

“Our viewers loved reaching out directly to Garth and Trisha to request their favorite hits back when the pandemic first hit. It brought some fun and joy directly into their living rooms as they were hunkered down with their families,” Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events/Alternative & Reality for CBS previously shared. “Now, nine long months later, who better to bring some holiday magic, performing some of the greatest holiday songs of all time than Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.”

Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event was filmed without a live studio audience. Extensive safety precautions took place when filming the special with a minimal crew following social distancing guidelines.
