Garth Brooks got help from Lady Gaga’s glam squad at inauguration

Before his Inauguration Day performance, Garth Brooks had a little primping assistance from Lady Gaga’s glam team.

The 58-year-old country music great, who sang “Amazing Grace” at Wednesday’s ceremony where President Joe Biden was sworn in, tweeted his thanks to the pop star’s go-to makeup artist, Sarah Tanno, and hairstylist, Frederic Aspiras, for helping him look his best.

“@ladygaga You were fabulous today and everyday. A national treasure,” Brooks wrote following the day’s festivities. “Please tell Frederick [sic] and Miss Sarah thank you for me! They saved a cowboy today. Oh, and tell Miss Sarah to hug her momma for me! love, g”

Both beauty gurus responded to the note on their respective Instagram Stories; “It was an honor helping you with hair for your beautiful inauguration performance,” Aspiras wrote, while Tanno joked of Brooks’ tweet, “BTW making this a shirt.”

A registered Republican, the “Friends in Low Places” singer picked an outfit that reflected his Oklahoma roots: a black blazer and shirt, dark denim jeans, cowboy boots and a cowboy hat. He removed the latter for his performance, inadvertently sparking speculation that he may have gotten hair plugs before the big day.

“This is a great day in our household,” Brooks said in announcing his participation in Biden’s inauguration. “In our household, this is not a political statement; this is a statement of unity.”

Gaga, 34, went for a decidedly more over-the-top look to sing the National Anthem: a custom navy jacket, floor-sweeping red skirt and giant gold dove brooch from Schiaparelli Haute Couture, which swiftly drew “Hunger Games” comparisons on social media.
