No. 1 reason to show up at the presidential inauguration a half hour early As a warm up to the swearing-in ceremony, Guy Hovis, a former singer on the Lawrence Welk Show and the director of Trent Lott’s Mississippi senate office, will perform Let the Eagle Soar.

Go figure.

Here’s a video of the original performance
