Garth Brooks appears to side with Bud Light: "If you’re an a**hole, there are plenty of other places"
Country megastar Garth Brooks has a new honky tonk opening in Nashville. The "Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk" to be specific. And there's an important question. It's not what live acts will be performing or whether or not wife (and Food Network star) Trish Yearwood is designing the menu. The important question is whether or not the bar will serve Bud Light.
As you may have heard, the now #2 beer in America has been embroiled in controversy. And Garth has taken a side. Kinda.
What did Garth Brooks say about Bud Light?
Brooks did not say the words "Bud Light" directly. But in an interview with Billboard that included "How His Nashville Bar Will Serve ‘Every Brand Of Beer’ in the title, it's clear what's being implied.
Garth says he doesn't want to sound corny, but he wants his new venture to be the Chick-fil-A of honky-tonks. Adding, "I want it to be a place you feel safe in, I want it to be a place where you feel like there are manners, and people like one another. And yes, we’re going to serve every brand of beer. We just are. It’s not our decision to make. Our thing is this, if you [are let] into this house, love one another. If you’re an a–hole, there are plenty of other places on lower Broadway."
He gave a politician's answer.
What about other country artists?
Other country music artists have been very outspoken over the Bud Light controversy. John Rich (the man responsible for me being a country music fan) was one of the first to announce he won't be selling the beer in his Redneck Riviera restaurant after the company sold out to woke politics.
Same as Kid Rock. Only he also used a visual aid (and a gun) to illustrate his disapproval of the matter.
Other artists, like Brantley Gilbert, have rejected the beer on stage to the sounds of thunderous applause.
I will never say an unkind word about Garth Brooks. I mean, he's Garth Brooks. He could have shotgunned a beer with Dylan Mulvaney on stage, and I would still convince myself it was Chris Gaines doing it and not him. Brooks should serve whatever beer he wants in his restaurant.
He just may find a lot of Bud Light left over at the end of the night.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
