Country music legend Garth Brooks announced that he will also be performing to help bring unity between the political parties.
“I’ve played for every president there is since Carter, with the exception of Reagan. This is an honor for me to get to serve,” he said. “And it’s one of the things that, if my family is around, no matter who the president-elect is, it’s an honor to be asked.”
Biden and Harris are also expected to make remarks, and the program will honor America’s pandemic heroes like doctors, teachers and other frontline workers.
