No disrespect to the other performers, but let’s face it, every other musician in America could have boycotted Donald Trump’s inauguration and it would still have been a resounding success … just as long as Lee Greenwood saw fit to sing the one song that perhaps fits this event better than any other –
“God Bless the U.S.A.”
Greenwood, along with “The Frontmen of Country,” performed his signature song at the “Make America Great Again!” welcome celebration on Thursday evening for the Trump family along with thousands of others attending the event at Washington, D.C.’s National Mall.

Greenwood rocked the house, and it was obvious from the footage of him joyfully singing along that one of his biggest fans was the president-elect himself:
Of the snowflakes who refused to perform, Greenwood said Tuesday, “It’s not just about the Trump event, it’s about the change of power in D.C. This is our fourth inauguration. I think whenever you’re asked to do a Congressional appearance, I think it’s in bad taste to say, ‘No.’ It’s not political.”
As expected, the event resonated with many on social media:
