Since the entertainment industry is run by liberals, many singers have been too scared to risk their careers by agreeing to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration. Luckily, the president-elect has been able to count on the country music world to step up for him when he needed them the most…
The Hill reported that country music band Big & Rich will headline an inaugural gala for Trump later this month. The announcement was made this week by the Republican Party of New York and Great Alliance America, who are hosting the gala.
“We’re thrilled to be performing in our nation’s capital during this historic moment in time,” John Rich, of Big & Rich, said in a statement, according to The Washington Examiner. “A presidential inauguration is a uniquely American event, so we are honored to be a part of it and hope to help make it a memorable event.”
Rich won season 11 of “Celebrity Apprentice,” which Trump was hosting at the time.
The gala will be held on January 19, the night before Trump’s inauguration, so it is not known at this time whether or not the president-elect will attend.
Eric Beach, co-chairman of Great America Alliance, released a statement saying that his organization is “proud to have been a part of this extraordinary movement.”
“We look forward to celebrating with the many people that contributed to his historic victory,” Beach said in a statement.
We’re glad to see that Trump can count on the country music community to have his back!
