Garth Brooks to Perform At President-Elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration Ceremony

Garth Brooks has accepted an invitation to play at President-Elect Joe Biden‘s inauguration on Wednesday.

Garth will be joining Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga as the performers during the swearing-in ceremony part of the day at the Capitol — this opportunity came as a personal invite from soon to be First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden.

Garth says that he feels honored to do this as an American. His family has a history of military service, and this is his way to serve the country and the Commander-in-Chief.

Garth is no stranger to playing on large stages, and in front of massive audiences, but when it comes to performing this Wednesday, where is this going to rank of the butterflies chart, “It’s going to rank really high on the butterfly list, the same way it did with the 2008 inauguration.” Garth added “I was lucky enough to be asked to play there…I was lucky enough to be asked to play the 2016 inauguration as well.” Garth was unable to accept that invite as he already had concert dates booked out, saying “That tour took a lot of cool opportunities from me.” 

Garth shares, “It’s always an honor to serve…I’ve played for every President there is, since (President Jimmy) Carter, with the exception of (President Ronald) Reagan, so I got to sit and have an audience with these people…including President (Donald J) Trump as well. So this is an honor for me to get to serve…and it’s one of those things that, if my family is around, no matter who the new President-elect is, when that call comes in…it’s ‘Hey man, congratulations,’ that’s pretty cool to be asked. So as an entertainer I just want to thank the Biden administration for the ask and the invitation.”

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way?
