Garth Brooks Praises March For Our Lives, Debuts Heartfelt New Song

Garth Brooks Praises March For Our Lives, Debuts Heartfelt New Song”

Garth Brooks took some time during his weekly Facebook chat, Inside Studio G, to praise Emma Gonzalez, one of the student organizers of March For Our Lives and survivor of the February 14 Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. Gonzalez has since become one of the student activists who have been leading the call for student protests all over the country, with the goal of putting public pressure on lawmakers to pass a number of common sense gun control measures that experts say would help prevent future mass shootings and school shootings.

Brooks addressed the remarks by Gonzalez, encouraging her, and other youth and young adults, to accept their own social responsibility.

"OK, Miss Emma. It's not yours to change - it's yours", he said. Our children are the future and your parents are fine with this, trust me. "Take it. Shape it. Mold it".

The country star also shared the following advice with those participating in the March for Our Lives movement across the nation, "Just remember when you march, you have a voice and you're representing yourself when you march. So, how you march is so important", he continued.

G arth Brooks is voicing his support for Saturday's student-organized March for Our Lives.

"You're walking for your children you haven't had yet", he added. He also expressed his wish that this generation will be the one to end school shootings. Brooks starts off the video giving his love to the late country music journalist Hazel Smith and continues on to talk about his record-breaking closing night performance at the HoustonRodeo. Everything IS bigger in Texas! HA!

"I got to sit down with Tony Arata, the writer of 'The Dance, ' once, and we wrote this song".

He recited one line from the song that he believes can be applied to the march later this week. "That's what you're onto, Miss Emma".
