Fact Check: Did Jason Aldean Say Garth Brooks Wasn’t Welcome at Toby Keith’s Vigil?

Jason Aldean said that Garth Brooks wasn’t invited to a candlelight vigil held for Toby Keith, who died on February 5th.

Aldean got a lot of support from his conservative fans for his music video called “Try That in a Small Town.” But Garth Brooks has been getting criticism because his bar in Nashville served Bud Light beer. Some people were boycotting Bud Light because they worked with a transgender TikToker named Dylan Mulvaney.

The Dunning-Kruger Times posted this claim on Facebook, and it got more than 34,000 reactions and 5,700 comments. One of the top comments said, “I agree. Garth Brooks only cares about himself.”

Jason Aldean said that Garth Brooks wasn’t allowed to come to the candlelight vigil for Toby Keith.

When Aldean heard about Toby Keith’s passing, he quickly organized a candlelight vigil and sing-along to remember him.

Aldean was surprised when Garth Brooks called and asked if he could perform at the event. Brooks said he didn’t know any of Toby’s songs but offered to play “Achy Breaky Heart” instead.

Aldean thought it was strange and wondered if Brooks was joking, but he was serious.
