Toby Keith is responding to those who are criticizing his decision to perform at a concert that's part of Donald Trump's inauguration weekend. ‘I don’t apologize for performing for our country or military,’ Keith tells Entertainment Weekly. ‘I performed at events for previous presidents and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO.’ On January 19, Keith will take part in the Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial.
