It looks like the Voice will be adding a new coach to their lineup as country legend Garth Brooks has confirmed that he will be joining the reality TV series as guest mentor for the November 14 live show. The 54-year old singer is just the latest addition to what has already been an impressive lineup of coaches and guest mentors, which includes the likes of Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Bette Midler, Joan Jett, Sammy Hagar and Charlie Puth.
The live shows of the Voice will be launching on November 7 and for the first time ever, voters from home will now be able to weigh in on the performances of the contestants in real time contributing to the advancement of two artists to the next round.
Judges Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, meanwhile have the chance to save one artist each during the live show, to add to their roster.
After the first live show, Garth Brooks will then join in to mentor the top twelve artists who will remain for the next round of performances, bringing with him more than two decades of experience in the music industry.
Brooks, who is back in the music scene after a thirteen-year hiatus, was recently honored as Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. He also set a record last October, after reaching seven diamond-certified albums, with each record selling more than ten million copies and establishing Brooks as the best-selling solo artist in history.
To add to his already busy schedule, the singer and his wife Trisha Yearwood are scheduled to light up the Rockefeller Christmas tree in New York on November 30. Before that he will be releasing his new album Gunslinger on November 25 marking yet another possible hit record for Garth Brooks.
With all his achievements and extremely successful music career, it’s no surprise Gath Brooks is a shoe in to be one of the most respected coaches on the Voice, who thankfully also gave his time to teach up and coming singers a thing or two about the industry.
