Garth Brooks to Perform at Biden's Inauguration, Was Asked to Perform at Trump's in 2017

Garth Brooks has been added to the performers lineup for Joe Biden‘s inauguration this week!

The 58-year-old country singer, who is a Republican, says that his appearance at the inauguration will be about unity.

“In our household, this is not a political statement, this is a statement of unity,” Garth said during a virtual press conference. “This is kind of how I get to serve this country.”

“I’ve played for every president there is, since Carter, with the exception of Reagan. This is an honor for me to get to serve,” he added. “And it’s one of the things that, if my family is around, no matter who the president-elect is, it’s an honor to be asked.”

Brooks was previously asked to perform at Donald Trump‘s inauguration in 2017, but he blamed his absence on a prescheduled tour date.

“I might be the only Republican at this place, but it’s about reaching across and loving one another,” he said about being at Biden‘s inauguration (via Deadline).
