President-elect Trump hasn't secured a lot of celebrity talent for his inauguration. However, it hasn't bothered him too much.

While celebrities continue to make the case for why they don't want to have anything to do with Trump, a few have stepped up, deciding to put their partisanship aside.

Jackie Evancho, a runner-up in “Americas Got Talent” is one of them. As a result, Evancho's album sales quadrupled.

But now, a big-time name has agreed to perform at the inauguration: country singer Toby Keith.

Keith, who has 20 #1 hits, isn't a Republican. Actually, he was a Democrat most of his life before switching over to being an Independent.

In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Keith addressed the issue of musicians who get angry when politicians use their music:

I don't care who adopts it. I hear all these people fussing and fighting over who can play their music politically.

Anybody who wants to play my music, I just say play it. I don't care.

Insults are flying with the news that Keith will be performing:

In typical fashion, some are even calling for a boycott of the musician's music:

Keith isn't the only act that is going to be putting on a show, though. 3 Doors Down, a rock band known for their smash hit “Kryptonite” in the early 2000s has also agreed to perform.

Keith and 3 Doors Down's concert will take place at the Lincoln Memorial, January 19th, one day before Trump is sworn in.

Trump's inauguration, an event that seemed like it was going to lack star power, seems to be getting some after all.
