Why do Conservatives like pro-American country music while liberals like anti-American punk rock?

Question by the_wife_from_7th_heaven: Why do Conservatives like pro-American country music while liberals like anti-American punk rock?
I was listening to my favorite country song ‘have you forgotten’, its about 911. When the song was over i flipped stations and got some young punk rock music, so violent and anti-American, “oh ricky youre so fine youre so fine you blow my mind hey rickie!”

Amazing how liberals always invoke violence into their hateful music…”you blow my mind!” Amazing that they even let that trash on the radio!

Shania Twain, Brad Paisley and a Country Playboy Playmate is pregnant?

Shania Twain hits primetimeTV, Brad Paisey’s son steals the show and which country Playboy Playmate is due with baby #2…

Ray Price When Ray Price was inducted into the Country Music hall of Fame in 1996, he said, “It’s about time.” For an entertainer who spent 35 years on the charts, generating 46 Top-10 hits, including the 4th biggest song (Crazy Arms) in country music all-time, his induction was unquestionably justified. Price, who was born on January on 12, 1926 in Perryville, Texas, spent most of his youth in Dallas. It was there where he learned how to play guitar and sing. Following his high school graduation, he studied veterinary medicine at North Texas Agricultural College in Abilene before he left school for a stint with the Marines (1944–1946). Ray began singing on KRBC in Abilene, Texas in 1948 and joined the Big D Jamboree in Dallas in 1949. Circa 1949, Price cut his first record for Bullet in Dallas. In 1951, signed with Columbia Records. His first Top 10 hit was” Talk to Your Heart.” He moved to Nashville in 1951, rooming for a short time with Hank Williams. When Williams died in 1953, Price took over his band, the Drifting Cowboys. A couple of years later, Ray formed his first professional band, the Cherokee Cowboys. During the late 1950s and early 1960s members of his band included Roger Miller, Willie Nelson, Darrell McCall, Johnny Paycheck and Johnny Bush. Ray had a giant hit in 1956 with “Crazy Arms,” a driving honky-tonk song that soon became a country classic. The blockbuster hit spent an astonishing 20 weeks at No. 1. “Crazy Arms” surpassed the success of Elvis

Q&A: Similarities between Country and Rap music?

Question by karen_faustino: Similarities between Country and Rap music?
Would you agree or disagree that at the lowest common denominator rap music and country music are in many ways the same, they just originate at opposite ends of the racial spectrum. Both are made largely by and for people from the lowest rungs on the socio-economic ladder and embrace and celebrate a lack of social sophistication. Both embrace the racial slurs once hurled at them. In country music it is commonplace to hear something like “HELL YEAH TO ALL MY REDNECKS!” in rap music “YEEAAH N*GGA!” Furthermore, the way in which fans of each type of music defend their preferences is almost identical as well. When an unbiased person hears a rap song about getting drunk, popping pills, degrading women and/or killing people they instinctively recognize it as trash. However if they were to try to explain this to a fan of such music they would be met with arguments such as “They’re just keeping it real” or “They’re just exposing the true nature of life on the streets.” Likewise, when an unbiased person hears a drunken, confederate flag waving, rebel yelling country song advocating a life of simple mindedness and backwards redneck ways they instinctively identify it as garbage. Yet if they were to make an effort to point this out to a fan of that kind of music they would likely be met with a defense of “They don’t mean no harm, they’re just some good ol’ boys” or ” I can’t help it, I’m just too damn country!”
I like some hip hop, and there is some older country that I like as well, it just seems that most of what has become commonplace in either genre is an absolute disgrace and insult to their respective histories and origins. What do you think?

I’ll assume you’re talking about on the radio…

Rap and country are at their bases, lyrical storytelling. They both deal in hardships and struggles. They’re both meant to teach.

Rap has lost all of this ftmp. Country still does all of it in a lot of cases, just not as much. Both genres are watered down these days(especially rap…)

It’s all about greed and nothing more these days(on the labels’ and artists’ parts)…but a change will come…

Could you imagine this track on the radio these days:
