We have a winner! Nobody, not one musician has accepted to sing for the presidential inauguration next January so far, but it seems that Garth Brooks is ready to go.
TMZ caught him at the Christmas tree lighting Wednesday in Washington D.C., and they asked him if he would be interested by performing at Trump’s inauguration while he was signing autographs. Then if Brooks admitted he hadn’t been asked yet, he had this to say: ‘It’s always about serving’… ‘it’s what you do’.
Which has to be considered as a yes, a yes with a sense of duty!
What is he thinking? First of all, this doesn’t have to be an obligation, no citizen is required to perform for the guy in power, this is not North Korea! Every artist has refused so far, so this is certainly not ‘what you do’, unless you support Trump and this is probably what Brooks did, although he has stayed silent since the beginning of the elections.
Let’s see Brooks is a country star, the biggest of all at the moment, he is probably a Christian since he has sung an awful amount of Christmas songs, but he has supported gay rights. He may be a republican but he has a democrat record at many levels, and he has been a full supporter of Obama and even sang at his inauguration, so why would he sing at Trump’s now?
None of this makes sense to me. How can you be so open and flexible? What will Elton John think about you Garth? Is this normal to feel a sense of duty for this kind of thing? Was singing at Obama’s inauguration also a duty? Is there anything Garth Brooks does which is sincere or is it always about serving? And serving what? The Nation or your bank account?

It’s the music, stupid
