Skip to comments.Tim McGraw & Brad Paisley, Are Officially Off My Christmas List
Posted on 11/01/2009 9:29:47 AM PST by FredJake
It is high time Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw were taken to task for their support of Barrack Husein Obama. I first must admit that I have been a fan of Brad and Tim for a long time. I love the way they put to tune and words of how it is to be a man is in the world. After all, how can you not enjoy listening to the way Brad strings together the words in his song titled, I'm Still A guy, or how he seems to lay his heart out in the tune titled, I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishing Song)? Then there are the songs by Tim McGraw that just makes me want to hold my wife closely as I sing along with him the words I could never think of on my own.
From the first time I heard Brad Paisley sing the song, Who needs Pictures in early 1999, I was a fan of his. And what man can honestly say he did not choke up a bit when he listened to the way Tim sang the beautiful ballad, Don't Take The Girl'? These are the kinds of songs that have been missing in the American music industry. Songs that speak to our hearts, because we feel exactly like they sing them to us on the radio. For too long the American culture has gone down the trail of anger and hate in the music that has been presented to us. So Country Music has for many become what the music was in the 70s, beautiful and relevant to our lives and hearts.
Yes, I have been a big fan of both Brad Paisley, and Tim McGraw. I even used their songs to try and convince my brother-in-law that he should give up Rock Music for Country. Well, he still listens to Rock, but he is not so critical of Country as he used to be. Well, their songs kept coming and I kept listening and buying them. Even when I found out that they were supporters of Barrack Obama during the Presidential campaign, I still liked them. I may have been a bit shocked by their support for him, but I still listened to their music and refused to turn them off when they came on the radio. I guess it was like trying to turn off the radio when I heard Willy Nelson sing his classic song, On The Road Again. Oh I knew he was a Jimmy Carter supporter, but times were different, and I wasn't really worried about my personal freedom back then.
Times have changed though, and I see things differently than I did in the past. Now, when I hear a politician speak about things I care about, I begin to weigh the balances, and they do not seem to balance like they used to. Now when I listen to politicians, and I begin to ask the question, What part of the constitution do they not understand'? Which brings me to Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, and their devotion to Obama and his agenda. (follow the link to continue reading OV's opinion piece),
Tim McGraw & Brad Paisley, Are Officially Off My Christmas List.
So let us all remove the liberals from our Christmas lists this year, shall we?
I stopped listening to Tim McGraw when he sang Red Cabriolet. In that song the girl chooses to have an abortion and Tim’s response is ..well we won’t think about it. That did it for me!
Is Toby Keith really a conservative? I thought there had been some dispute over that.
Also Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are Democrats, if I recall.
Brad Paisley’s latest hit.
When I was ten years old,
I remember thinkin’ how cool it would be,
When we were goin’ on an eight hour drive,
If I could just watch T.V.
And I’d have given anything
To have my own PacMan game at home.
I used to have to get a ride down to the arcade;
Now I’ve got it on my phone.
Glory glory hallelujah.
Welcome to the future.
My grandpa was in World War II,
He fought against the Japanese.
He wrote a hundred letters to my grandma;
Mailed em from his base in the Philippines.
I wish they could see this now,
Where they say this change can go.
Cause I was on a video chat this morning
With a company in Tokyo.
Everyday is a revolution.
Welcome to the future.
Look around it’s all so clear.
Wherever we would go and well we...
So many things I never thought I’d see...
Happening right in front of me.
I had a friend in school,
Running-back on a football team,
They burned a cross in his front yard
For asking out the home-coming queen.
I thought about him today,
Everybody who’s seen what he’s seen,
From a woman on a bus
To a man with a dream.
Wake up Martin Luther.
Welcome to the future.
Glory glory hallelujah.
Welcome to the future.
How’s that communist future working for you Brad?
Brad Paisley has always seemed a bit wimpy to me. I’d bet he loses badly in a fist-fight with any of the above-listed conservative country singers.
Paisley is just like Mcgraw. He acted all faux conservative until he was big enough to come out of the liberal closet.
I long ago took McGraw off my list. And his wife Faith Hill too.
Kenny Chesney is a big conservative too. Two years ago (in the heat of the campaign when Bush bashing was a sport) I was listening to a Boston area country radio play a word game with Chesney and the chic said, “George Bush or George Clooney?” Chesney flatly said, “Bush. He’s a good man who gets a bad rep.” The radio sidekick was stunned, “reaaaaaallllly?” Hysterical.
I do have to say though Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw both have beautiful families.
As a friend explained to me about Country music....Country isn't country anymore...in fact...the other day there was an article exposing many of the so-called country singers who fake their southern accent.
Thank goodness I've never cared too much for country music, therefore, I do believe there would have been a tremendous disappointment because the left is duping people into getting money into their coffers anyway they can.
I was a fan of country music for years and Brad Paisley killed it for me with that stupid tick song. I haven’t listened to country since it came out.
Its a shame about Brad. I already knew the drama queen McGraw was a democrat. As long as they keep their yaps shut and don’t promote anyone I will ignore it.
Well, it seems like Fred Jake posted my opinion piece I wrote. I posted it earlier but since it was re-posted by another I figure I might as well ping my list and give you a heads up on it.
It is just a short bit about my opinion of Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, and their support for liberal causes.
If anyone wants added or removed from my ping list please freep mail me.
I can never understand why Political leanings of entertainers matter to JQPublic.
I don’t watch/listen to them based on their politics.
Could never understand the boycott thingie either.
Thanks for posting this. We do need to support those who support America.
For another perspective, the left has no hesitation about going after and destroying performers whose music criticizes or threatens them. For an example I suggest Freepers look-up Steve Vaus and see what was done back in the 1990s to a wonderfully talented patriot whose career was starting to take-off.
Thanks for the ping!
Arghhhh! But Brad’s such a good guitar player. And he uses a G-Bender , as do I. And Dr. Z amps, ditto!
“Brad Paisley killed it for me with that stupid tick song.”
For me, it was “Watermelon Crawl!” And I’m a pedal steel player, and continued to play in Country bands after that song came out. But never listened to the Country radio stations after being bombarded with that song non-stop whilst driving 22 hours straight through to Fla.!
If Oprah doesn't like you you're in deep doodoo!
Not at all..what I don’t understand is how a handful of people who decide to boycott one person or another business, think that their boycott will send a message or have some sort of impact....I don’t listen or watch people based on their political leaning...if I were to take on that practice, life would be pretty damn boring.
Ditto’s my FRiend!
I could not have said it better myself, I just wish more had the passion you show for the way I felt when I wrote the article. Sorry Neets, but you are way off the mark on this.
I actually made my wife a bit angry with me when I told her i was finished with both brad and Tim, she is in love with their music. Thus contention brewed in the home when I mentioned my intention for speaking my peace and telling her I will not buy her any presents that include their names.
That’s disappointing, ‘cause I like their music. I don’t know why celebrities can’t just keep their great flapping traps SHUT (when they’re not singing or acting.) Like Laura Ingraham’s book said, “Shut up and sing.” If I were famous, I would keep my politics to myself, rather than offend half my audience.
It would be like the local hardware store putting a big sign in their window saying, “Bush is an idiot and Republicans are stupid!” That would be insane because all the Republicans in town would be offended and would go shop at the competing hardware store across town. Same with celebs. They are salespeople. Whether they’re selling CDs, concert tickets, movie tickets, or a TV show, they are salesmen, and it just doesn’t make sense to insult big chunks of your audience.
Do one better, pirate their music, yes that’s stealing. But we might as well steal from the ones that keep telling the erst of us to share. I say we make them share....
With his song An American Soldier and The Angry American, I don't think his patriotism and love of country can be denied... Then there is one of my favorites "I love this Bar"
If they want a career in Politics go into it....if they want to sell records its shut up and sing.....if they want to act, its shut up and act....
Their ego's get too big and they forget what made them money and a career.... yuk
Brad Paisley was born in 1972.
A friend of his had a cross burned in his front yard for asking out the homecoming queen...in the mid-to-late 1980s? Were things really that bad in West Virginia back then? Or are we talking about poetic license?
To me, country and western means names like Skeeter Davis, the Statler Brothers, Loretta Lynn, Ronnie Milsap, etc.
Just shut up and sing.
And those politicians say things like:
I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.
Yah, but doesn’t burning a cross in someone’s front yard garner nationwide media attention & REAL jail-time if they catch ya? Regardless how some West Virgians are “Byrd-brains,” you’d think that even Klansmen nutters would have enough sense not to do something like THAT. It’s not just wrong; it’s suicidally stupid.
