Garth Brooks Ain’t Afraid to Run for Public Office

“Maybe it’ll be up to people like me to make it better,” Garth says.

Garth Brooks has told the Las Vegas Sun that he would consider jumping into politics.

"Yeah, sure! Everyone who’s ever been an employer or a boss is basically leading people," Garth said. "So the thought of leading people doesn’t scare me."

Garth was asked the question after sharing thoughts on a recent trip to Haiti.

What he learned from that trip, Garth said, "is that with a few bad decisions, my own country could be in that shape in a few years."

Garth says he's particularly wary of partisan politics.

"If we cannot stop voting on what’s Democratic and what’s Republican instead of what’s right or wrong, we are doomed. Maybe it’ll be up to people like me to make it better.”
