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.”

Country Music Fans Act a Fool at Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean Concert in Green Bay

Kenny Jason

Police say 250 to 300 people were kicked out of the stadium concert with Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean in Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Saturday.

By comparison, about 25 ejections are typical for a Green Bay Packers game. Green Bay Police Captain Paul Ebel tells Press-Gazette Media he doesn’t remember ever handling an event so busy for police at the stadium. Most of those concertgoers were ejected because of fighting, harassment or extreme intoxication. Police arrested 25 people. Chesney’s 2011 concert at Lambeau Field resulted in 15 arrests and 60 ejections.

If you want to get a little laughter out of the ridiculously drunk behavior check out Doug Schneider of the Green Bay Press Gazette who live-tweeted the police scanner during the concert, as he does for each Packers home game.   Check out some of the hilarious tweets here.

 

 

Country Musicians Pay Respects to Jim Ed Brown

Brenda Lee remembers Jim Ed Brown and his sisters as “true pioneering legends” who were her “road family” in her early days as a musician. Lee spoke at Brown’s memorial service yesterday at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

Performers included The Oak Ridge Boys, Crystal Gayle and Lady Antebellum. Brown had been voted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in March, and although the induction is set for the fall, he still lived to see it. A special induction ceremony was held in his hospital room two weeks ago.

Yay!!! Real country music on the radio again! Woot!
