In a stunning moment of unity, Garth Brooks took centerstage to sing a lovely performance of ‘Remarkable Grace’ at Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
Moments after Joe Biden resolved the nation as president for the first time, Garth Brooks appeared at the inauguration to carry out. The country super star removed his stetson as he belted out “Incredible Grace” at the occasion. With President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, members of Congress and more looking on, Garth put his country twist on the hymn.

Garth was one of 3 high-profile musical visitors at the inauguration. Previously in the day, Woman Gaga was front and center to sing a performance of the National Anthem. Jennifer Lopez also appeared to perform “This Land Is Our Land.” Both women looked definitely extraordinary as they brought their own style to the patriotic tunes. After their performances, Kamala and Joe were sworn in as president and vice president, officially taking over for Donald Trump and Mike Pence
Although Garth is a Republican, he said that he performed at the Democratic inauguration as a show of unity. “This is not a political declaration,” Garth informed reporters previously this week. “This is a declaration of unity.” He described that his look at the inauguration was an honor since it was his method of “serving the country.” Prior to the inauguration, Garth joked that he “may be the only Republican politician” at the event. He did not publicly endorse either candidate (Biden or Trump) during the 2020 election.
Regrettably, Garth got some criticism from his Republican advocates for his choice to sing at Biden’s inauguration. He made it clear, however, that he does not desire his efficiency to produce more division. Rather, he hopes his appearance at the inauguration will become part of “the bridge that brings [the country] together.”
” In this case, you should rise beyond red and blue,” Garth described. The entire mission of a Garth Brooks concert is for the individuals that come to enjoy the program to leave the show loving each other more than when they came in.
