Now USA Today reports that the rap-rock star and the lead singer of Alabama will both play performances designed to drum up support for the Republican nominee, in Manchester, New Hampshire and Wisconsin respectively.

Obama has had no shortage of supporters in the music industry, including Bob Dylan, Sir Paul McCartney, Beyoncé, Madonna, Win Butler, The National, Katy Perry, Axl Rose and Kelly Clarkson.

Romney's musical supporters include Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, who said: "I love and respect my country and I want it back!

"I want the country that Dr Martin Luther King Jr and so many others including myself marched for, that we gave blood and sweat to help create. That's why I support Mitt Romney for president."

Other high-profile supporters include The Marshall Tucker Band and The Oak Ridge Boys. Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys told the paper: "I am supporting Mitt Romney because our country is in an economic mess and Mitt Romney is a businessman.

"The Oak Ridge Boys have to balance our books every year. Obama has exploded our budget and national debt. With the stimulus money, he used borrowed money to buy government jobs and pay off his supporters. Very few 'real' jobs were created. We need real change."
