Garth Brooks canceled his talk show appearances due to the "civil unrest" in the United States following the Ferguson decision.

"We landed in NY last night to the news of the civil unrest that was going on in our nation," Brooks said in a statement.

The singer felt it was wrong to "spend the day promoting [his] stuff like nothing was wrong."

"[It] seemed distasteful to me," the "People Loving People" singer continued.

The 52-year-old said he has plans to reschedule his appearances, networks permitting.

"Love one another," he concluded.
