Convention Watch: RNC Announces Entertainment Lineup

The Republican National Convention announced its entertainment lineup, a list that includes Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Oak Ridge Boys, Taylor Hicks, BeBe Winans, Jack Blades of Night Ranger, Neal Boyd and Randy Owens.

GE Smith, the lead guitarist of Hall & Oates and former musical director on “Saturday Night Live,” will lead the house band.

In addition, on Tuesday night, the band 3 Doors Down will premiere their new single “One Light.”

Meanwhile, Ann Romney will be getting a Tuesday speakers slot, apparently ending a standoff between the campaign and the broadcast networks. She was originally scheduled to speak on Monday, but the networks announced that they would not televise any convention coverage that evening. The campaign had urged the networks to reconsider, before altering their schedule today.

The complete entertainment lineup, via the RNC, is below:
