Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood just took a big stand for the Orlando shooting victims Instagram/@garthbrooks/@aaronpritchett/@mikeonamonday

Garth Brooks first sang about accepting our gay brothers and sisters on his 1992 single, “We Shall Be Free.” In light of the shooting that claimed 49 lives and injured many more at Orlando gay club Pulse, Garth dedicated his performance of that song at his June 12 concert to those affected by the massacre.

On top of that, Garth had the stage lit up with the colors of the gay pride rainbow flag. His opening act, singer/songwriter Aaron Pritchett, posted this photo of the stage and said how proud he was of Garth for “spreading love and acceptance for decades.”
