Brooks’ publicist, Nancy Seltzer, told Reuters on Friday, “Garth has performed for the five living presidents. … While rumor has it that he has been asked to perform for President-elect Trump, he has not been able to commit yet.”
So far no celebrities have been announced for the event.
Earlier this week, TMZ asked Brooks if he would sing for Trump. He replied, “It’s always about serving. It’s what you do.”
So far, both Elton John and Vince Neil have denied rumors that they would perform at the Jan. 20 celebration, while RiFF RAFF said he would do it for the right price.
Many of music’s biggest names campaigned against Trump, siding with his opponent, Hillary Clinton, in the election, including Beyonce, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus and Jay Z. In response to the suggestion that Trump’s inaugural committee was having trouble assembling talent for the event, communications director Boris Epshteyn said that was not true.
“No struggle, whatsoever,” Epshteyn told ABC News. “We have world-class talent, world-class entertainers reaching out to us offering their help, offering their services, so no struggle, whatsoever.”
It was announced Friday that the inauguration’s theme will be the same as Trump’s campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again.”
