Find out why Garth Brooks said no to the Trump inauguration
Garth Sits On the Fence and Thinks He Is Playing It Safe By Not Taking A Stand Well We Can See Right Through HIs Excuse. No matter how well Garth sings and performs he has lost our respect – WHISNews21
Garth Brooks has been getting some flack on social media in the past few days for not performing at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C. Until he set the record straight on his weekly Facebook Live show, we had no way of knowing if Garth had even been asked to perform at the inauguration, though.
It turns out Garth was asked to perform at the inauguration by his good friend, casino mogul Steve Wynn, who is helping recruit talent for Trump’s big ceremony. A conflict in his tour schedule is going to keep Garth in Cincinnati, Ohio for inauguration weekend, though.
Garth explained on Live from Studio G, “We left it up to karma. If Cincinnati goes two weekends instead of one, then of course we are out.”
Garth added, “I’ll tell you with this whole presidential thing: We got one going out. Pray for him and his family. And for the president going in, pray for him and his family to guide this nation. Let’s stay together.”
Garth closed his comments on the matter saying, “We can’t thank the Obamas enough for serving this country. And may God hold Trump’s hand in the decisions that he makes in this country’s name as well.”
Garth ended up having three additional shows to play in Ohio at the same time as the inaugural festivities, but he is calling for Americans to come together in love and unity as we welcome a new president.
