Rock artists Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd and country stars including Trace Adkins will play for the Republican National Convention in August.
Just leave Cheryl Crow back at the trailer park, Kid.

The Politico reported:

Liberty Plaza Events has signed on musical acts Lynyrd Skynyrd (Aug. 26), Trace Adkins (Aug. 28) and Kid Rock (Aug. 29) for the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Other artists such as Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robert Randolph and Night Ranger may also appear. There will also be another major act for the closing night “Wheels Up” party that’s still to be announced. Sponsors include the National Energy Institute, Amway, Southern Company; the American Action Network and Citizens United. Liberty Plaza’s production partner is PRG, the concert production and touring company responsible for lighting U2’s 360 and Madonna’s current tour.

The location will also be home to invitation-only events for groups such as the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, the House GOP whip team and Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.). Late night concerts will benefit the Navy Seal Foundation, the Wounded Warrior Project and other veterans programs. Gibson Guitar and The Heritage Foundation will also have hospitality tour buses on hand. “Liberty Plaza is excited that we have the opportunity to honor our nation’s heroes and celebrate the sacrifices they made for the freedom we have today,” said Ron Bonjean, spokesman for the group.

  1. Hell yeah!!

  2. Watch the snark about Crow, she just announced she has a brain tumor – which is probably not malignant, but any breast cancer survivor has to hold their breath about any such growth, since those cancers affect the same person rather often.

  3. Then hopefully that brain tumor will keep the kook home.

  4. Sounds like a fantastic line-up for the Republicans for once, but Kid Rock without his buddy Hank Jr.? Jim may have been posted Crow’s best work ever here – Ol’ Bobby Ritchie brought the best out in her.

    The HEADLINER definitely should be Kenny Wayne Shepherd:

    Can a white boy play the blues?

  5. Where is uncle Ted?!

  6. Whaaat…No Dixie Chunks…This is a shocking development

    Love to see Bocephus there also,that’ll set Tingles hair on fire

    Always room for another “Bitter Clinger”

  7. Thanks for your support of the troops. It’s great to see Kid Rock there and hopefully Hank will bring his rowdy friends and speak some truth. Support wounded warrior businesses. Many wounded warriors are coming home, getting out of the military and jobs are very limited. Therefore many are having to start their own businesses just to take care of their family. In an effort to help, we have created the Wounded Warrior Directory, the one and only directory dedicated solely to supporting service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses at Great place to find teaming partners or hire a local veteran sub contractor. Please help us let others know about these businesses and this cause. Thank you!

  8. Kid Rock is a bitter clinger red neck at heart…” Def Leappard SUCKS ! “….>

  9. Until Ronnie VanZant comes back to life, it isn’t really Lynyrd Skynyrd.
