Who’s Playing at the RNC?

Top rock, country stars slated to perform at GOP convention in August


It may not be a festival on the level of Woodstock, but attendees of the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August will be getting some top-notch country and rock alongside speeches from top party figures.

According to a post on Politico, the GOP has already booked legendary southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, country artist Trace Adkins, and Detroit rocker/occasional rapper Kid Rock to play on August 26, 28, and 29, respectively. Other artists who may appear at the convention include:

  • Ronnie Dunn, of Brooks & Dunn fame
  • Kenny Wayne Shepherd
  • Robert Randolph, from Robert Randolph and the Family Band
  • Night Ranger

Still to be announced will be a “major act” that will be playing the “Wheels Up” closing night event.
