Big & Rich and country rapper Cowboy Troy have been announced as performers for the Great America Alliance Inaugural Gala, which is set for January 19 in Washington, D.C. ahead of president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“We’re thrilled to be performing in our nation’s capital during this historic moment in time,” Rich said in a statement. “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.”
While it’s been rumored that Trump had trouble getting anyone to agree to perform at his inauguration, another country star had his name tied to the big day.
