Country music gets its due at the Obama White House next week.
The Obamas will play host to a string of country stars legendary and contemporary Monday at their seventh In Performance at the White House program.
Among those performing Monday night: Lauren Alaina, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett, Mickey, Darius Rucker and James Taylor.

I am profoundly disappointed in Dierks and Darius.
Hussein did this already...sellout Brad Paisley was there, and so was some other leftwingnut country artists.
Should be “so WERE”...SORRY for the grammar error.
James Taylor is a real C***** A******
What, no Dixie Chicks? They would fit right in.
I just the way James Taylor has always used steel guitars and twin fiddles in his songs. /sarc off>
Cracker music. Music to cling to your gun and Bible by.
The royal family will hate every minute of it.
dems want dunham out of white house...
Glad he has his priorities straight. This is WAAAAYYY more important than perhaps meeting with the Super Committee on deadline night.
Pathetic. Real Country wants nothing to do with pres Jug Ears
They are dead to me!
Laser like on jobs I see.
"I've always loved NASCAR, country music, boiled
peanuts, RC cola, Moon Pies, and GooGoo Bars!"
Alison Krauss is one of my favorites.
lol.... My favorite country is the Flying Burrito Brothers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeGvcEW-_u0 and some of what Gram Parsons and the Byrds did
I like AK too... hope she’s appearing as a respect for the institution of the Presidency, and White House, and not to honor its present occupants.
I like her, too, but she was also at Hussein’s first shuck and jive routine for country music.
You would think they at least would attract some good jazz/R&B artists,...maybe BB King, but I suspect they would end up with some Indonesian Muslim rappers before that ever happened.
...party party party, 24/7 in obamie’s white house.
