Country music star Garth Brooks will bow out of his Las Vegas residency next month by performing for millions of fans across the U.S. in a live concert special.

The singer has been playing sold-out shows at the Wynn Las Vegas resort for the past three years, but he is determined to go out with a bang and has signed a deal with bosses at America’s CBS network to beam his final gig into devotees’ homes on the night after Thanksgiving.

Brooks will pay tribute to his biggest inspirations during the two-hour event, performing classic covers of songs by George Jones, Merle Haggard, George Strait and Simon & Garfunkel, among others, and he’ll be sharing the influence their music has had on his own greatest hits.

A statement released by Brooks reads: “This is the soundtrack of my life. Growing up the last of six kids, music was the life blood of our family. And as you can imagine, Mom, Dad and each kid had his or her own favorite stuff, and it all funneled down to me.”
