Garth Brooks to Perform at Joe Biden Inauguration

Garth Brooks is on board to help America ring in the new presidency.

The Country Music Hall of Famer announced in a press conference on Monday that he would be performing at President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration this coming Wednesday, January 20th.
"This is not a political statement — this is a statement of unity," Brooks said. "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." 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."

Lady Gaga will sing the National Anthem at the swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol and Jennifer Lopez is also performing.

Celebrating America, the tv special will be in the evening hosted by Tom Hanks and featuring performances by Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Jon Bon Jovi, John Legend, Bruce Springsteen, Foo Fighters, Ant Clemons, and more.
