“What I’ve learned during this crazy year is I thought I was grateful, I thought I didn’t take things for granted. I totally took things for granted," Brooks said.

Brooks has encouraged his fans to stay safe throughout the pandemic. In April 2020 the singer and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, shared a public service announcement to encourage social distancing and flattening the curve of COVID-19.
