Division and negativity drive the narratives on some country music sites as much or more than in politics.
I try to include a cross section of country and related genres. Where I start drawing the line is with acts who try to build their “brand” by taking cheap shots at other artists.
My 2018 New Country Plus Showcase is now close to 400 songs. In the interest of fairness, when I include a political song or artist, I try to also include someone with a different viewpoint. For instance, songs by Hank Williams, Jr and Willie Nelson are back to back, and a Charlie Daniels song is in the same block of songs with Jason Isbell.
As always, enjoy the music !
