Garth Brooks is continuing to take a stand against critics who have slammed his decision to sell Bud Light beer at his new Nashville bar.
“I think if you know Garth Brooks, no matter how long you’ve known him, always been inclusive. We’re going to need each other, trust me,” Brooks said during an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” on Thursday.
“So, I think that diversity, inclusiveness, I think what you find is our differences are our greatest strengths.”
