Garth Brooks Awards The President

Garth Brooks was in Washington D.C. recently to take part in "Grammys On The Hill," an event that supports intellectual property rights. During an interview with CBS, Garth spilled the news that he presented President Barak Obama with his second Grammy, for Best Spoken Word Album for Audacity of Hope. President Obama won his first Best Spoken Word Grammy in 2006. "We're the same except I don't have the peace prize," Garth joked with CBS reporter Bob Schieffer about his own two Grammys.

Garth wasn't the only one giving away awards. President Obama returned the favor by presenting Garth with an award recognizing his leadership in advancing the rights of musicians and songwriters. Garth spoke with CBS about what he thinks of today's country music, and why he's just a little bit upset with the President. To view the video, click here
