The Election, Politics and Country Music

From CMT:

When Barack Obama won the Presidential nomination earlier this month, it may have signaled the best thing that’s ever happened to country music. That’s according to a story in theNew Republic by David Browne, who is also a contributor toRolling Stone. He talks about how GOP presidents have long latched themselves onto country singers, and that there’s almost nothing at all “country” about Taylor Swift. Meanwhile, writer Gabe Meline at Metro Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz, Calif., suggests that Gretchen Wilson and all other John McCain supporters should get the boot from the radio airwaves.
