"I can’t think of an artist more deserving of this honor than you. Garth Brooks, thank you for the gift of your music to a world who desperately needs it," she said. "You inspire us all to love one another, to be kinder, to be better. Congratulations on your #KCHonors I you, more than ever! Love, Trisha."

Choreographer Debbie Allen, singer-songwriter Joan Baez, actor Dick Van Dyke and violinist Midori will also be honored at the 43rd annual event for the Kennedy Center's distinguished award.

The ceremony typically occurs in early December, but it was postponed until May because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
