Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, and Dierks Bentley were among the stars who took part in this week's "Teachers Rock" special that will air tonight. Garth was interviewed on the red carpet before the show and explained to Hollywood TV what made him want to do the show.
"Well first of all, the people putting it on are all friends of mine so they called me. My two brothers are teachers and my sister-in-law is a teacher so it's all in our family, and so it was an honor to come here. I love what the cause is about and when I got to sing with the kids -- I said, 'Can I sing with children?' and they said, 'Sure,' and they were fantastic. They stole the show like they should have."
You can watch Garth's interview in the video below as well as several other stars.
The special will air tonight, Friday, August 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
