"The show will be very, very simple but will celebrate the classic American songs we know and love. I'm very honored to do the show for PBS," she said. "I'm glad there still is a PBS, if I can say that. PBS gives performers the opportunity to do things that they aren’t always able to do and share this with the audience."
A target air date has not been announced. Chenoweth's 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM American Songbook concerts are nearly sold-out.
Chenoweth also said that she expected to announce details of a Broadway revival of On the Twentieth Century in the near future.
She makes her Utah concert debut Dec. 31 with a sold-out New Year's Eve concert at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts in Park City. The evening will benefit the Park City Performing Arts Foundation.
