Country Music and Anarchists

21 Feb

I just have to wonder if there are any other radical or anarchist people out there with an affinity for shitty pop country music? I’m talking Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Trace Adkins, Josh Turner, Sugarland, Zac Brown Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Billy Currington, Alabama etc.

Even though it seems like at least half of this music is about stuff I stand strongly against- like America, Christianity, capitalism, war, beer, sexism, and meat, I still really like it.

But there are other aspects, like Miranda Lambert singing about shooting a man who was abusing her, or Free Bird by Skynyrd that really rule.

Part of it is also attributable to Southern Pride.

Weird huh? Your thoughts?
