In the Monday night episode of Garth Brooks' Facebook Live show, Inside Studio G, the singer attempted to spread hope in the midst of the protests, some of which have been violent, that have come in response to the death of George Floyd.

Many fans tweeted to the singer about one of his famous tunes, the 1992 hit "We Shall Be Free," which calls for unity among the human race, a reality he believes we can achieve.

"We'll get there. It might not be in our lifetime. It might not be in my children or my grandchildren's lifetime, but we'll get there," Brooks told his fan base. "This world's a lot better -- I know a lot of people think this world is going the other way, but I think this world's a lot better than it used to be. I really do."

He also told fans about a humbling moment he shared with wife Trisha Yearwood this weekend.

As Yearwood expressed her anguish over the situation, saying that it feels as though the world is on fire, Brooks led her outside on their Tennessee property to get perspective.

"I said, 'The world isn't burning. And the reason why the world isn't burning is because there's a lot more people that believe in loving one another than they believe in burning the world,'" he shared. "So just believe that the person next to you is a good person. We'll get through this."
