Another opportunity to see Garth...from this site (http://www.the9513.com/randy-travis-answers-questions-at-the-country-music-hall-of-fame/):
As for his current agenda, Travis said he’ll be continuing to tour and promote Around the Bend, and will also be a part of a Kennedy Center celebration honoring George Jones. Travis hinted that a couple of friends will be joining him on stage at the celebration, including Jackson, Garth Brooks and Hank Williams Jr.Paula

I was just about to pose the question that, since Travis said that Garth would join him on stage, did that mean that Garth would be performing? Also, wouldn't it be cool if Garth & George did Beer Run during the event :)?

In case you haven't seen a Kennedy Center Honors celebration before, the honorees are usually seated in box seating above the stage, and the artists pay tribute to them--I don't remember any honoree taking part in their tribute, except maybe singing along from their seat. :)

Garth and Trisha honored Loretta in '05, and she appeared very moved.

Kennedy Center Honors are great shows. I remember Garth & Trisha did Louisiana Woman Mississippi Man duet for Loretta it was fantastic :)

I believe Vincent was performed during a tribute (or induction) ceremony for songwriters--around 2002 or 2003?. And Garth's Empty Chairs was for a PBS special Mr McLean did in 99? Both killer performances, BTW. :D

Stars to Perform for Kennedy Center Honorees

With all the attention given to which celebs are coming to the inauguration, most of the talent for Sunday's Kennedy Center Honors has managed to stay under the radar. The producers like to keep the A-list a surprise until the stars walk onstage, but a few names have leaked:

· Beyoncé will perform "The Way We Were" for her career model, honoree Barbra Streisand. "I want to be like her," Beyoncé told the L.A. Times. "She is just the ultimate. And I want to be an icon, too."

· Clint Eastwood and Denzel Washington will pay tribute to Morgan Freeman: Eastwood co-starred with him in "Million Dollar Baby"; Washington worked with him in "Glory."

· Garth Brooks will sing for George Jones; the two recorded a duet together, then had a falling out, but are now BFFs.

Still secret: the performers for dance legend Twyla Tharp and the Who's Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey.

I'm surprised.......figured that would be his buddy Alan Jackson. Glad it will be Garth. They could have left off the last part, not necessary to have that in there.

Garth Brooks then sang a medley of Jones' signature hits including “White Lightning.” Brooks doffed his cowboy hat and said, “simply the greatest voice to ever sing country music — George Jones.”
