Donald Trump Transition Team “Willing to Pay Anything” to Not Have to Listen to Kid Rock at Inauguration
This is unsourced, so take it with a grain of salt, but I can see it. If you perform for Trump you are dead musically to me the rest of your career. I’m probably not alone there, and no matter how many page clicks Trump fans and the alt right can generate I’m betting that they don’t buy as much music as everyone else in the universe.
Now, his transition team is offering “seven figures” to any chart-topping musician willing to perform at the president-elect’s inauguration.
“They are willing to pay anything,” a “Hollywood insider” told The Wrap. “They told me, ‘We’ll pay their fees.’ Most of these artists’ fees are in the six to seven figures.”
Trump’s Inaugural Committee told the same Hollywood insider that it “was in talks with Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Lee Greenwood and possibly Garth Brooks,” but is holding out for “artists like Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars” and “calling managers, agents, everyone in town to see who they can get, and it’s been problematic.”
