For those who like to know the politics of their entertainers, here’s a list of “Country Recording artists and Nashville-area stars” and to which political party/candidate they give money.
It doesn’t matter much to me. There are a couple in the Republican category whose music I have enjoyed in the past, and I will continue to enjoy. But I do find it interesting that if I were to tally the number of my CDs by artists in each category, the Democrats win in a landslide. Whether or not the musician makes their opinions explicit in their songs, often it will come through regardless.
And Bonnie Raitt sure has a lot of money to give. Alone, she almost doubles all the Republicans on the list combined. I’m glad she’s on our side.
