NEW YORK - Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie and Bill Harris, CEO of the 2004 Republican National Convention, today announced a second group of entertainers who will perform in New York City during the 2004 Republican National Convention. Country music superstars Brooks & Dunn, Grammy Award-winning Country singer Lee Ann Womack, Latin Grammy Nominee Jaci Velasquez, Grammy Award-winning rock band Third Day, the inspirational Gracie Rosenberger, rock band Dexter Freebish, Country star Darryl Worley, and Grammy Award-winning Donnie McClurkin join a previously announced lineup of entertainers who will take the stage at Madison Square Garden.
"We appreciate the fact that these artists are lending their time and talents to the Republican National Convention," said Chairman Gillespie. "Brooks & Dunn, Lee Ann Womack, Third Day and each of the entertainers participating in New York bring enjoyment to millions of fans and we are honored to showcase those talents during our convention."
"The Republican Party is honored to 'play the Garden' this month, and it will be a thrill to see these entertainers take the stage," said Mr. Harris. "Our program of outstanding speakers and performers will showcase the momentum and excitement of the Republican Party as we head into the fall."
Today's additions join a previously announced lineup of entertainers to perform at the 2004 Republican National Convention. The initial group includes Michael W. Smith, Daniel Rodriquez, Daize Shayne, Ron Silver, the Gatlin Brothers, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sara Evans and Dana Glover.
The 2004 Republican National Convention will be held for the first time ever in New York City at Madison Square Garden from August 30 - September 2, 2004.
Nice, decent line up for GOP convention.
My favorite quote:
Concluded Cooper, "Besides, when I read the list of people who are supporting Kerry, if I wasn't already a Bush supporter, I would have immediately switched. Linda Ronstadt? Don Henley? Geez, that's a good reason right there to vote for Bush."
I have tickets to see Brooks and Dunn at the York Fair - September 10th. Looking forward to it.
I saw Toby Keith 2 years ago at the York Fair - loved his show - he talked a lot about the Peter Jennings thing.
I hope Brooks and Dunn tell us about their experience at the convention.
I'm glad some well-known musicians are playing the Convention, but I truly cannot stand country music. Ugh!
