Trump Inauguration Acts Unveiled: Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down to Perform
The upcoming inauguration concert for president-elect Donald Trump at Washington D.C.'s Lincoln Memorial saw some bigger names added to its lineup today (Jan. 13).
The Inaugural Committee announced that country star Toby Keith, Broadway star Jennifer Holliday and '00s mainstream rock fixtures 3 Doors Down are among the artists who will commemorate Trump taking office as the 45th president.
Jon Voight, perhaps the most vocal and high-profile Hollywood backer of Trump, will also be in attendance at the event.
So far, Trump's inauguration has been hobbled by the perception that major entertainment industry names have refused invites to perform at the festivities.
According to a post on Three Doors Down's Instagram, other performers at the event will include DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow ("Little Texas"), Larry Stewart ("Restless Heart"), Marty Roe ("Diamond Rio") and "God Bless the U.S.A." singer Lee Greenwood. See the band's post below.
The "'Make America Great Again!' Welcome Celebration" will take place Thursday, January 19th and will be broadcast live to the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It will feature historic remarks from President-elect Trump and special appearances from Toby Keith, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow ("Little Texas"), Larry Stewart ("Restless Heart"), Marty Roe ("Diamond Rio"), Lee Greenwood, and 3 Doors Down.

In addition, Billboard has learned of several more country artists who will be playing inauguration events, including Darryl Worley (Great American Inaugural Ball), Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts (Veterans Inaugural Ball Salute to Heroes) and Larry Gatlin (Black Tie & Boots 2017 Inaugural Ball).
