Garth Brooks may have friends in low places, and for his latest project, they would be at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Or they may be as high as the top of a Hawaiian volcano.
Brooks is the narrator for a new five-part National Geographic series titled America’s National Parks. It will premiere August 29 and run for five consecutive nights. Starting August 30, it will be available for streaming on Disney+.
Brooks, who is also the executive producer of the series, will take viewers across the country to locations including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Big Bend, Badlands, and the Hawaii Volcanoes. Each park will get its own episode.
National Geographic says the episodes will go in depth on the parks and take viewers to landscapes they have never seen before.
Brooks teased the series on his Twitter account, writing “Are YOU ready to discover a national treasure like no other? Explore #AmericasNationalParks with me, a week-long event with shows I narrated.”
He promised fans they would love the series, then teased to it with a brief video. National Geographic TV also posted a preview of the series on its Twitter account.
The episodes will be introduced by First Lady Jill Biden, including the premiere where she is standing at the Grand Canyon.
“America’s national parks are full of unrivaled natural beauty, geological wonders, cultural history, and amazing wildlife,” the First Lady says in her introduction to the series. “Each national park connects people to a piece of the American story — who we are and where we came from. With at least one national park in every state, all Americans can enjoy them.”
The First Lady points out that there are more than 400 national parks across the country.
“There are so many unique places in our country that are waiting to be explored,” she says.
As part of the series, National Geographic will air a public service announcement reminding current and former members of the military and their families that they are eligible for free admission to all of the nation’s national parks.
