Transcript for Garth Brooks to perform at inauguration
Bounty, the Quicker Picker Upper. Good morning, good morning Good morning, sunshine. We're going to get right to "Pop news" with Lara. Good morning, Lara. Hey, good morning, you guys. We'll begin with the inauguration and country superstar Garth brooks announcing he will be performing at the swearing in ceremony for President-Elect Joe Biden. Garth making the announcement during a virtual press conference telling his fans why it was important for him to be there. Take a look. This is a great day in our household. This is not a political this is a statement of unity and love. So that's pretty much it. Just excited, nervous, all the good things, you know, because this is history. This is kind of how I get to serve this country, our father served as a United States marine in the Korean war and had brothers serving in the air force and army. This is my chance to get to serve. Garth went on to say, quote, there is a common theme with every election. A new beginning, a new start. If we're going to get anywhere we'll get there together. With the exception of Ronald Reagan brooks has performed in some capacity for every president since Jimmy Carter. He won't be alone. Joining him on stage at the inauguration will be Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, demi low separate to, John bon invest XI and lady gaga set to perform the national anthem. Also this morning, a very, very happy birthday to the queen of country, turning 75 today and to celebrate we have a few fun facts about dolly parton you may not have known. Fact number one, in 1972 dolly wrote two of her biggest hits "Joe lone" and "I will always love you" in the same day. Talk about a good 24 hours for music. Did you know that Elvis was originally set to sing "I will always love you" but his manager wanted dolly to give them half of the publishing rights. Needless to say that did not happen. She stood up for herself and told the king, find yourself another song and did you know for her 1980 comedy "9 to 5" dolly didn't want to show up unprepared so she memorized not only her role but the entire it was her first movie. She thought, you had to know everyone's part. Last one here, dolly prefers pie over cake and I sure hope she's having a delicious big old piece of her favorite pie today. Happy birthday, dolly parton. We love you so. And finally, guy, a Chinese restaurant serving up a little honesty on the menu. The owner of this restaurant in Montreal keeping it real. For example, under Orange beef he admits, quote, not that good and he goes on to say he's just not a fan of North American Chinese food. Under the sweet and spicy pork strips he writes I'm not a huge fan of our version to be honest and regarding his beef dish, I did not have the chance to try this. I should probably spend more time eating in my restaurant. Writing, in the description of his cumin beef, this one is very tasty. Guy, his honesty is working, the owner says sales are now booming. I love that. A little honesty on the menu. That's it for us. Sending it back to you. We're going, really? Kind of makes you want to try it, though. I will give him credit for that. Thank you so much for that,
