Garth Brooks In Live Stream: Start Spreading the Love

Garth Brooks wasn’t in Las Vegas this weekend when tragedy struck at Route 91 Harvest festival, but the country icon joins the world in mourning and moving forward.

Garth took to Facebook Live on Monday, one day after 59 people lost their lives when a gunman opened fire on the country music festival, to share the healing power of music.

“When things go bad, doctors go to work,” he says. “When thing go bad, policemen go to work. When things go bad, music and musicians go to work.”

The “Ask Me How I Know” singer delivered a message to his fellow musicians on performing post tragedy.

“Those people in those seats, they come to get away from it all, to be happy, to be joyous, to sing, and to love one another,” he says. “That’s what it’s all about. So, you got a gig tonight? The music starts tonight. Start it again, start spreading the love. Start creating the greatest power music holds, and that’s the power to heal.”
