We all know of president-elect Donald Trump’s struggle to book talent for his inauguration, but he’s finally booked some names you might actually recognize without putting them into a rectangle and hitting your enter key. Shit rockers 3 Doors Down highlight the lineup for the “The Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration,” a bill that also includes Toby Keith, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, DJ Ravidrums, the Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow, Larry Stewart, Marty Roe, and Lee Greenwood. Clearly it’s a bit different than President Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009, which featured Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, U2, Usher, Stevie Wonder, Denzel Washington, and Tom Hanks, among others.
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.

“The Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration” goes down on 1/19 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Meryl Streep is overrated and 3 Doors Down are purveyors of American rock virtue — who knew?
UPDATE: Jennifer Holliday has dropped out and apologized.
