Country star to narrate a 10-part series showcasing national parks

Oklahoma native and country music icon Garth Brooks will produce and narrate a 10-part documentary series that will showcase national parks in the United States.

From the deeply cut canyons of the Rio Grande to Hawaii’s constantly erupting volcanoes, National Geographic reveals to the world the diversity and wonder of America. Each episode showcases the breathtaking landscape and extraordinary wildlife in America's parks.

The award-winning creative team behind iconic has produced such natural history films and series like Disneynature’s “Earth” and “Elephant Eden” as well as BBC’s “Planet Earth” and “Frozen Planet." 

“NATIONAL PARKS is a celebration of the natural wonder and power of nature in our backyard. From iconic places to secret gems, this series will open the gateways for all to explore the breadth of the beauty and tranquility,” explains Janet Han Vissering, senior vice president of production and development for National Geographic. “We are proud to partner with Wildstar and their incredible breadth of talent to open a window into the very best wildlife and natural history programming, and to be narrated by none other than Garth Brooks.”

As a singer and songwriter that many consider “the voice of America,” Garth brings authenticity and a heartfelt understanding of these natural open spaces that will resonate not only across America but around the world.

“Our National Parks are truly an amazing gift. The land is what defines us. The land is what tells the American story,” says Garth Brooks. “It is such an honor and I’m so excited to be a part of this series – a series that celebrates all our heritage.”

From humble beginnings in rural Oklahoma where he first learned to play guitar and banjo, Brooks went on to become one of the world’s bestselling artists of all time, selling hundreds of millions of records. In the United States, he is second only to the Beatles in total album sales.
