Country Musicians Downplay Use Of Confederate Flag

confederate flag

Country musicians have been quietly swapping out the Confederate flag for the American flag in the weeks since nine black churchgoers were fatally shot in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Confederate flag was once a symbol of the renegade spirit for many country acts but it has fallen under scrutiny after the alleged Charleston shooter, Dylann Roof, was photographed with it as a symbol of white supremacy. Charlie Daniels wrote on his website the Confederate flag was simply a sign of defiance and pride in where people came from. John Rich told Fox News he agreed with the calls to remove the flag from the South Carolina statehouse.

Personally, I think it is up to each one of us to do our own research to find the real reason this battle flag was once flown.  I think if we take the time to find out the real history and meaning of it we will find that it is wrong to let one person who committed a heinous crime change our United States history forever.

I applaud Kid Rock for standing up for his beliefs and not backing down.

Kid Rock issued a scathing response to Fox News for its story about a Michigan-based group protesting the Detroit Historical Museum’s exhibit that bears his name.  Even though Kid Rock is a Michigan native, he had no love for those protesting the Kid Rock Music Lab because of his association with the Confederate flag, which he often displays on stage.

During the segment that aired Thursday, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly read the the rock star’s response to those who wanted him to denounce the flag.

“Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my a–. Ask me some questions.”

Tracks from the new album will be performed live by Music City favorites the Long Players led by Bill Lloyd (serving as the evening’s house band) and by some of the legendary session players from the original recordings, including Nashville Cats Mac Gayden, Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie McCoy and Norbert Putnam.

The family-friendly evening begins at 5 p.m. with face painting and balloon artists for kids. Some of Nashville’s favorite food trucks will be on hand, and guests will be able to purchase Mexican cuisine, including tacos, quesadillas, and flautas—as well as wine, beer and margaritas—from Bajo Sexto Taco, located at the museum. The concert begins at 6 p.m. and the first 200 attendees to arrive will receive a commemorative Hatch Show Print poster.

The album Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, issued jointly by Sony Legacy Recordings and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is available now. It features a previously unreleased version of Bob Dylan’s “If Not for You” and 35 other essential tracks.
