Garth Brooks will perform at President-elect Joe Biden‘s inauguration at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday alongside previously announced artists Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez.

Brooks said he accepted an invitation by incoming First Lady Dr. Jill Biden to perform last week.

On a zoom call announcing the news, Brooks joked that he will likely be “the only Republican at the ceremony.”

“This is an honor for me to get to serve… 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,” he told reporters.

Brooks did not reveal the song he is going to play for Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Brooks performed “We Shall Be Free” at President Barack Obama‘s inauguration in 2009.
