On Wednesday, January 20, 2021, country icon Garth Brooks took the stage at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration at the U.S. Capitol. Garth Brooks performed “Amazing Grace” shortly after the 46th U.S. President Joe Biden was sworn into office. As he walked down the steps, Brooks paid tribute to the newly sworn-in President Joe Biden with a respectful tip of his hat. 

Dressed in a black button up, men’s cowboy hat, and his signature blue jeans, he invited the crowd to sing along with him as he inspired the crowd. Our Sheplers’ cowboys believe that it was one of Garth Brooks best performances yet and a great start of his 2021 career. 

As Garth Brooks performed the timeless hymn, he brought a sense of faith and unity to the crowd at Washington D.C. asking them to sing the last verse of “Amazing Grace.” Brooks encouraged the crowd and television viewers saying, “Not just the people here – but the people at home, at work as one – united.”

Garth Brooks Serves His Country

When asked about his performance at President Joe Biden’s 2021 Presidential Inauguration, Brooks described the honor as,“how I get to serve the country.” Garth Brooks has also performed at the 2009 Presidential Inauguration where former President Barack Obama was sworn-in. When asked to participate in former President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration, he declined claiming it was due to scheduling conflicts with the Garth Brooks Tour.

When Garth Brooks finished his performance, he shook hands with President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, former Vice President Mike Pence, as well as hugging Bill and Hillary Clinton as he departed from the U.S. Capitol.
