BREAKING: After Bud Light, Garth Brooks Surprises Again

Garth Brooks does whatever he wants.

That’s something few celebrities get away with, but the singer has enough money, fame, and diehard fans that he does not need to fear reprisals from either side of the political aisle. The singer went against many of the country performers of his generation — and Kid Rock — when he made it clear that his upcoming Nashville Bar would serve Bud Light.

Instead of condemning Anheuser-Busch (BUD) for working with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, Brooks embraced the idea of inclusivity. In a business where a lot of the core fan base consider “diversity” and “inclusive” as dirty words, the singer made it clear that his new Nashville “Friends in Low Places Bar” would be welcoming to all.

“I think diversity is the answer to the problems that are here and the answer to the problems that are coming. So I love diversity. All-inclusive, so all are welcome. I understand that might not be other people’s opinions, but that’s OK, man,” he said in an interview with Billboard.

That earned the best-selling country singer of all time some right-wing backlash and people calling him “woke.” Brooks did not seem at all bothered by that as he followed up his support of inclusivity by joining his wife, country singer Trisha Yearwood, in calling for people to support Ukraine.

That’s Brooks taking up a second opinion that some right-wing voters — be they isolationists or simply fans of Russian Dictator Vladimir Putin — consider “woke.” Those two stands led to calls for boycotts, which seem to have little impact on the singer as he just quickly sold out the 83,000 capacity Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.

Now, the singer shows that he answers to no party by doing something completely unexpected at his Nashville bar.
