They're political parties, after all, and the Republican National Convention on Friday gave some insight into who will be entertaining their thousands of delegates next week.

Topping the list are the sounds of rockers 3 Doors Down and Lynyrd Skynyrd; country crooners The Oak Ridge Boys and Randy Owens; and "America's Got Talent" winner Neal Boyd.
The 50,000 who are expected to attend the four-day convention next week will also hear from some local flare in the Tampa Gospel Choir and Conrad Oberg, a legally blind 17-year-old keyboardist and guitarist from Jacksonville, Florida.
Notably absent from the lineup announced on Friday is Kid Rock, who performed at a Romney rally in Michigan in February. Kid Rock's "Born Free" is a staple of the soundtrack at Romney rallies.
