As he approached a stool on the convention stage to perform "Carolina in My Mind," he quickly said, "I'm gonna sit on it. I'm not going to talk to it."

Eastwood addressed the Republican convention last week with a skit in which he pretended to have a conversation with President Obama, using an empty chair to represent Obama.

Before starting "You've Got a Friend," Taylor quipped: "I'm an old white guy, and I love Barack Obama."
