Garth Brooks Explains Exactly Why He's Not Performing At Donald Trump's Inauguration — Watch!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteDonald TrumpFacebook

At least he's got a great explanation.

Aside from the protests that Donald Trump will be dealing with during his inauguration, he's having a VERY difficult time trying to land an A-list performer. Well, despite Garth Brooks turning down the offer, the country crooner at least wanted to share his thoughts on why he's not doing it!

On Monday, the singer took to Facebook to post an video updating fans and answering some questions. As you probably know, Garth was asked by TMZ over a month ago about performing at Trump's event and the 54-year-old said he would if it worked out. Brooks explained businessman Steve Wynn made the Grammy winner a formal offer, but since the artist is in the middle of a two-year world tour, he told Wynn he would "leave it up to karma." And no, that's not a stripper in Vegas. HA!

After Garth's ticket sales caused him to add three shows in Cincinnati, the Friends in Low Places singer could not commit to the inauguration.

Seeing as how our future POTUS just lost ANOTHER performer after the Bruce Springsteen cover band bailed, we're curious how the whole event is going to shake out!

Ch-ch-check out Garth's video (below) to hear all his updates and the singer's thoughts on Trump's inauguration around the 4:30 mark!

Bristol Palin Says Elton John, Aretha Franklin, & 9 Other Artists Are All 'Sissies' For Skipping Trump's Inauguration…

no title

She can see sissies from her house!

Bristol Palin's biggest claim to fame — apart from her mother's name — is her time spent on Dancing with the Stars… which technically makes her qualified to speak for fellow reality TV villain Donald Trump, to some degree.

Man, political punditry has gone downhill… and it started so low to begin with…

As you're surely aware by now, the current President-elect/former Celebrity Apprentice host is just three weeks away from being sworn into office, and yet he STILL doesn't have any A-Listers scheduled to perform for his inauguration!

Sure, Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and at least some of The Rockettes will be there on January 20… but we're more intrigued by who's NOT going. And so is Bristol, apparently.

In fact, the 26-year-old mother-of-two just called ELEVEN different artists who've publicly declined Trump's invitation "Sissies" in a blog post on Wednesday!!

That's right — Elton John, Céline Dion, Aretha Franklin, Katy Perry,

Donald Trump Finally Finds Another Performer For The Inauguration Ceremony!

no title

They may not be 'yuge… but at least they said yes.

One of the only silver linings to come out of Donald Trump's dark ascension to power was that literally no one in Hollywood wanted to take part in his inauguration!

While the racist Republican was able to convince 16-year-old America's Got Talent winner Jackie Evancho to perform the National Anthem, the President-elect simply couldn't find someone A-List to sing for when he gets sworn in on January 20… until now, that is.

Don't worry — Celine Dion, KISS, Garth Brooks, Elton John, and all the other A-list musicians out there are still boycotting his big day.

But they found someone! We'll give you a hint… Think BIG…

As in 360 members big! That's right, Donald Trump and Mike Pence will be treated to the musical stylings of…
