Garth Brooks didn’t endorse any of the presidential candidates this election season, but he did share his thoughts on performing at Donald Trump’s Inauguration in Jan! So will the country crooner take the stage? Get the scoop!
Country singer Garth Brooks, 54, was spotted at the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony in Washington D.C. on Nov. 30, where he was kind enough to sign a couple of autographs for a few fans and drop a couple of thoughts about potentially performing at Donald Trump’s, 70, Inauguration at the top of next year.
When asked if he had given any thought to performing Garth revealed to TMZ that he hadn’t been asked yet. But if extended an invite, he spilled that it could be a possibility. “It’s always a possibility. It’s about serving. It’s what you do,” he graciously said.
It’s no surprise Garth keep his answer short and sweet. The singer has been tight-lipped throughout the controversial and insane presidential election. Although Garth isn’t known to dabble in politics, he has raved about President Obama, saying that loves “him to death,” and that he “fully” supported him back in 2011. SO sweet!
Although Garth may be open to serenading the president in Jan., Sir Elton John, 69, says you can count him out! After reports started to spread claiming the music icon was going to perform at the Washington event, Elton hit back with a short statement, declaring that he “will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration.” Ouch, that’s got to sting! Sir Elton previously endorsed Hillary Clinton, 70, and even performed at fundraisers for her campaign, saying that she was the only one “supremely qualified” for the position.
If Garth does find his way over to Washington D.C., Trump’s Inauguration will take place on Jan. 20. He would also be joining singer Vince Neil, 55, who confirmed his performance earlier in Nov. 2016. Following the historic inaugural address, a number of voters have planned a Million Women’s March to protest the president’s administration and stand up for women, minorities, and immigrants who felt as though they were victimized during Trump’s campaign.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Garth should perform at the 2017 Inauguration?
