Some think it sounds like Martina McBride:

Does #GarthBrooks' People Loving People remind you of @martinamcbride's Love's the Only House? Or is that just me?

And one writer thinks it's "condescending":

I find the "It's just people loving people!" chorus condescending. That's not a new philosophy, and it's also not taken root in all history.

Brooks is no stranger to message music. Way back in 1993 — that's 18 years before Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" — he was singing about gay rights, on "We Shall Be Free":
