Donald Trump couldn't woo many top stars to perform for his inauguration but he surrounded himself Thursday in patriotic fervor at a concert anchored by country music veterans. On the eve of his inauguration as the 45th president of the United States, Trump threw a celebration on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial that culminated in fireworks that lit up the Washington sky.
