Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw + More Spotlighted on TV Special
'Good Morning America' co-host Robin Roberts, who made an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry during Breast Cancer Awareness week earlier this month, is once again putting the ABC spotlight on country music. The TV personality (and former country radio deejay) is set to host a prime-time television special highlighting some of Nashville's biggest stars.
'In the Spotlight With Robin Roberts: Bright Lights. Big Stars. All Access Nashville' will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Carrie Underwood's hometown of Checotah, Okla., Tim McGraw's family farm just outside of Nashville, and Martina McBride's world-renowned Bluebird recording studio. Each artist also speaks candidly with Robin about their childhood, family life and career.
The special also bridges generations of country music, with Robin speaking to both Tayla Lynn, granddaughter of Loretta Lynn, and Vince Gill's daughter Jenny Gill, about how their famous family members influenced their decision to become artists themselves. She also talks with Rosanne Cash, who carries on the legacy of her famous father, Johnny Cash.
President Barack Obama, Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts also reveal what they think is the best country song of all time. The one-hour special airs on Tuesday, Nov. 10 on ABC, the night before the CMA Awards.
