Garth Brooks responds to backlash after decision to serve Bud Light in Nashville bar

Garth Brooks is in the news this week after announcing his decision to serve Bud Light beer at his soon-to-open bar in Nashville, Tennessee.

During a conversation with Billboard Country Live, Brooks remarked that “We’re going to serve every brand of beer.  We are.  We just are.  It’s not our decision to make… If you come into this house, love one another.  If you’re an a–hole, there are plenty of other places on Lower Broadway to go”.

The announcement angered some potential right wing customers who are boycotting Bud Light after the beer brand partnered with trans activist & TikTok user Dylan Mulvaney, with many social media users flooding websites with calls to boycott Brooks and his soon-to-open “Friends In Low Places Bar & Honkytonk”.

During his weekly Facebook Live Q&A session, titled Studio G, Brooks addressed the online controversy directly, saying “Everybody’s got their opinions.  But inclusiveness is always going to be me.  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 added that as a bar owner, he plans to sell Bud Light and allow his customers to decide whether to purchase the beer or not.
