Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood to Pay Tribute to Frank Sinatra
According to Deadline, Underwood and Brooks, along with John Legend, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Usher, are among the initial artists set to take part in CBS and the Recording Academy's Sinatra 100 -- An All-Star Grammy Concert, to commemorate the 100th birthday of one of music's greatest crooners.
The Sinatra 100 taping is scheduled to take place on Dec. 2 at Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theatre and will feature arrangements penned for Sinatra by Don Costa, Gordon Jenkins, Quincy Jones and Nelson Riddle. Plus, past footage of Sinatra’s classic performances will be interspersed throughout the program.
“Frank Sinatra is a voice for all generations. His showmanship and artistry have remained unmatched since he began performing professionally in the 1930s to his last recording 21 years ago,” says Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy. “Today, he continues to gain popularity for his classic sound and signature style. It’s only fitting that we join the global celebration in honor of his 100th birthday.”
Additional performers for the event will be announced in the coming weeks. Sinatra 100 -- An All Star Grammy Concert will air on Dec. 6 at 9PM ET on CBS.
Sinatra was and is loved by many, and country stars are no exception. Brett Eldredge sang Sinatra at a private Nashville show last year, Darius Rucker channeled Sinatra for charity, and Eric Paslay chose the singer's "Moonlight Serenade" as his first dance with his wife.
