Friday, Trump’s inauguration team announced three of their biggest, non-cover bands, gets to date for the upcoming inauguration festivities. Artists 3 Doors Down, Toby Keith and Broadway star Jennifer Holliday are set to perform Trump’s Jan. 19 Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration outside of the Lincoln Memorial.
Toby Keith already responded to critics of his decision to perform for Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.
“I don’t apologize for performing for our country or military,” Keith said in a statement to EW. “I performed at events for previous presidents [George W.] Bush and [Barack] Obama and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO.”
Several smaller names will also join them, including The Piano Guys, Lee Greenwood, RaviDrums and The Frontmen of Country, which a press release explains as “featuring Tim Rushlow, former lead singer of Little Texas, Larry Stewart of Restless Heart and Richie McDonald of Lonestar.”
The event is open to the public and will reportedly feature “historic remarks from President-elect Donald J. Trump.”
“President-elect Trump has made it clear that this inaugural is of, by and for the American people,” Chairman Tom Barrack of the inaugural committee said in a statement. “
The 58th Inaugural will celebrate American history and heritage, while setting the course to a brighter and bolder future for all Americans. Above all, it will serve as tribute to one of our greatest attributes, the peaceful transition of partisan power.”
The hunt for artists willing to perform at the president-elect’s inauguration has been very public, with many artists coming out and saying that they would not participate, including several who have relationships with Trump. Garth Brooks, KISS, Kanye West, Marie Osmond, and R. Kelly are just a few of those who won’t be present on Jan. 20.
