Fans of Garth Brooks will get a comprehensive look inside his life and career this fall, with the A&E Network’s Biography series presenting Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On.

Premiering December 2 at 9 p.m. ET and stretching out over two nights, the two-part, four-hour documentary is said to offer an “intimate look into Brooks’ life as a musician, father and man, as well as the moments that have defined his decade-spanning career and seminal hit songs.”

A lengthy trailer for the project seems to hint at the documentary’s all-encompassing scope, featuring interviews with Brooks himself and a supporting cast of famous faces. Never-before-seen footage of Brooks’ wife, Trisha Yearwood, will of course be included, as well as conversations with Keith Urban, George Strait, James Taylor, bandmate Ty England, songwriter Tony Arata and many others. Plus, Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On will also take a look at Brooks’ current life and career, with behind-the-scenes access to his ongoing Stadium Tour.

Meanwhile, the project will also serve as an anchor to the network’s “Garth Week” — a whole week of special content which includes a broadcast of Brooks’ Yankee Stadium concert (from 2016) premiering on December 2 at 9 p.m. ET. Brooks’ “Dive Bar” featuring Blake Shelton is out now, and the pair just finished up filming the collab’s official video.
