( - Country performer Garth Brooks says, "may God hold Trump’s hand" for the decisions he makes for this country.

In a recent Facebook video Garth Brooks discusses the change at the White House and explains why he won't be performing at the inauguration festivities for President-elect Donald Trump.

"With this whole presidential thing, we've got one going out - pray for him and his family. And for the president going in - pray for him and his family to guide this nation. Let’s stay together – love, unity that’s what it’s all about," Brooks says.

"Can’t thank the Obama’s enough for serving this country and may God hold Trump’s hand for the decisions he makes in this country’s name as well," Brooks later continues.

In the video Brooks mentions he was invited to perform at the inauguration, and was going to play - if his current tour didn’t add additional dates in Cincinnati, Ohio.

"We said, 'If Cincinnati goes two weekends instead of one, then of course we're out.' Sure enough, Cincinnati did five shows - two weekends and backed us up into there. So we got knocked out of it (the inauguration)."
