Country singer Toby Keith said he does not have to apologize for his decision to perform at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

"I don't apologize for performing for our country or military. I performed at events for previous presidents Bush and Obama and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO," Keith told Entertainment Weekly.

Keith will perform at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 19 and will be joined at the "Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration" by rock band 3 Doors Down, country singer Lee Greenwood, the Piano Guys, and the Frontmen of Country, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The Rockettes, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and singer Jackie Evancho are also set to perform at Trump's swearing-in ceremony.

Singer Jennifer Holliday was set to perform, but announced Saturday that she had backed out. The Wrap posted a letter from her in which she said her decision to perform was a "lapse of judgment."
