In the 1990s, it was hard to turn on a country music station and not hear Tim Rushlow and his band, Little Texas, belting out hits such as “You and Forever and Me” and “God Blessed Texas.”

Rushlow has since moved on from Little Texas, but he’s still a very active performer who’s having a very busy week.

He was one of several to perform at President Donald Trump’s “Make American Great Again! Welcome Celebration” Thursday on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. He joined Lonestar’s Richie McDonald and Restless Heart’s Larry Stewart as the Frontmen of Country.

But the next time Rushlow performs for the Trumps, they will be the first family. Rushlow will play at the inauguration ball with his jazz band, Tim Rushlow and His Big Band. Spin reports that Rushlow will play the first dance number for Trump and the first lady, his wife Melania, on Friday.

Next month, Rushlow will perform at the Island View Casino in Gulfport. Rushlow and His Big Band will make a special Coast appearance at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11. Tickets start at $30 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.
