Country Stars and Politics

Since it is election day I thought I would talk a little about politics. Most people believe that all country stars are Republican. I did a little digging and found a few that aren't just for you Democrats out there. Toby Keith is a life long Democrat and has said "I am very impressed with Barack Obama." Also, power couple Tim McGraw and Faith hill are Democrats. And then there are the outspoken Dixie Chicks. They almost lost all of there fans and music career a few years ago for a political comment. The lead singer announced at a concert that she was ashamed that President Bush was from Texas. Don't worry my Republican country fans you still have many singers on your side including John Rich who sang at a rally for Mcain.
In the November issue of Redbook there were many country stars showing there patriotism. Reba McEntire, Martina McBride and Taylor Swift share the cover of an issue that aims to celebrate freedom, patriotism and the American experience. None of them said who they were voting for. They all sent out the same message that it is extremely important to vote, and I agree with them. I hope all of you reading this that are 18+ get out there and vote today.

Man, I remember when the Dixie Chicks had their outburst and what a rift that caused between them and a lot of their fans! Seems like a super long time ago!
