The entertainment industry is so shamelessly liberal in this country that artists believe that being tied to Donald Trump in any way is a risk to their careers. As a result, the president-elect has had trouble convincing any stars to agree to perform at his inauguration, which is set to take place next week.
Thankfully, country music stars have rallied behind Trump, and their trying to make sure his inauguration is as star-studded as possible.
According to The LA Times, country music star Toby Keith announced on Friday that he has agreed to perform at Trump’s inauguration concert which is set to take place next Thursday, the night before he is sworn in. A slew of other stars have also signed on to perform at the concert, including rock band 3 Doors Down and patriotic country singer Lee Greenwood.
Greenwood has previously performed at the inaugurations for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush and George W Bush. He has also performed for Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.
“I’m honored to be part of history again and sing for President-elect Donald Trump,” said Greenwood, best known for his signature song “God Bless the USA.” “This is a time to overcome challenges in our country and band together.”
“President-elect Trump has made it clear that this inaugural is of, by, and for the American people,” committee chairman Tom Barrack said in a statement released Friday. “The 58th Inaugural will celebrate American history and heritage, while setting the course to a brighter and bolder future for all Americans.”
“Above all,” Barrack continued, “it will serve as tribute to one of our greatest attributes, the peaceful transition of partisan power.”
