The Obamas are going country, reports the Associated Press. President and Michelle Obama will hold their seventh ‘In Performance at the White House’ program on November 21 featuring several country music artists. Lauren Alaina [2], The Band Perry [3], Dierks Bentley [4], Alison Krauss [5], Kris Kristofferson [6], Lyle Lovett, Mickey, Darius Rucker [7] and James Taylor are all scheduled to perform.

Several artists will also take part in an afternoon workshop at the White House before the night’s concert. The workshop for 120 local Washington D.C. students will teach them about the history and cultural significance of country music.

Both the workshop and the concert will stream live on www.whitehouse.gov/live [8]. The workshop begins at 2:00 p.m. ET and the concert will start at 7:00 p.m. ET. The concert also will be broadcast on PBS on November 23.
