A lot of people ask celebrities to run for President. Ronald Reagan was the first to accomplish it and of course our current President was a big celebrity before entering politics. Some have asked Garth Brooks about considering a 2024 run as he explained in Billboard. One of his biggest problems he thinks is which party does he affiliate with.
Trust me, no one would know which way to go with me because I am so both. I really am 'Let’s love one another, but don't forget we’re the defender of freedom all around the world, so let’s beef up.'"
Brooks points to two of his songs that are on opposite ends of the political spectrum. "People don't think you can do both. And that's right down my alley. That's why you can have 'We Shall Be Free' and 'American Honky Tonk Bar Association' at the same concert. Let’s love one another and let’s pull our own weight."
Garth compares it to the way he handles his faith publicly.
"I'll do my patriotism pretty much the way I'll do my belief in God. "People say, 'Are you ever gonna make a gospel record?' and I say, 'I don't feel worthy of getting to do one.' So my songs like that are 'Unanswered Prayers' and 'The River.' Same way with patriotism."
"I'm not going to shove it down your throat, but I don't think you have to be around me long to realize that I feel lucky to to live where I live," he adds
