Earlier today, Garth Brooks announced (7/29) that he would remove himself from the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year category, to give other performers a chance to win the honor. Blake Shelton reacted to a tweet by Garth’s longtime friend Steve Wariner.

Steve posted to Twitter, “If you’ve ever seen @garthbrooks live, you know why he consistently wins entertainer of the year. There is no one as big as Garth, but more importantly there is no one as kind.”

Shelton retweeted the tweet adding, “Agreed Steve…. He is Garth Brooks. GARTH BROOKS!!! I don’t give a s— what anyone says. ANYONE. Entertainer of the century.”
