Revealing: What ABC Didn’t Show You from the CMA Country Music Fest

Posted By Bruce Carroll On September 2, 2010

This article is nearly three months in the making. For the second year in a row, my partner John and I attended the Country Music Association (CMA) Music Fest in Nashville, TN in early June. As a side note, if you ever get the opportunity – GO! It is a weeklong celebration of great country music and the great American city of Nashville.

But this isn’t a tourist agency pimping of Music City. Nope, it is a damning indictment of Hollywood’s natural, auto-immune liberal bias. Let me explain.

During the actual CMA Music Fest in June there is a massive concert each of four nights at LP Field where the Tennessee Titans play football in the fall. The good old American Broadcasting Company takes four nights of country music and compresses it into three hours. That edited program was shown last evening on ABC for all to see.

As I sat in LP Field in June and saw each night’s great entertainment unfold, I knew with confidence that two notable events would NOT be aired last night on ABC. I was right.

In fact, I tweeted “live” from the floor of the concert when one of them occurred. Unfortunately, as usual, Twitter’s status history is malfunctioning. When viewers saw Tim McGraw sing “Southern Voice” last night on ABC, there was an important moment that the network cleverly edited out and actively hid from America. Why? Because it was inflammatory and would have exposed McGraw, a passionate Democrat activist, to extreme ridicule today.

For those of you who are out of the know (count yourself fortunate), this is the same Tim McGraw who stated that Bill Clinton was the GREATEST American president. The same Tim McGraw who is married to Faith Hill. The same Faith Hill who stated that then President Bush should be in New Orleans (during the Katrina disaster) to personally help clean up.

For those of you who haven't noticed, McGraw's been working in front of the camera trying to play a guy trying to act. I have told me family that I believe the reason McGraw and his wife are receiving film roles is because the Left is grooming them to run for public office. Mark my words, it will happen.

Frankly I don’t think the Rat base would have cared and the GOP disagrees with him anyhow.

Possibly, or maybe just to influence those "redneck folk that cling to their Bibles and guns.

Good post BTW.

Well, coming from sewage pond scum, I’ll take that as a compliment.

You’re so touchy when it comes to your McGraw/Hill “music”.

Why wouldn’t a Democrat think President Clinton is the Greatest President in the World? Do you think Tim would pick Carter or Obama? Sheesh. Republicans often say that Reagan is the greatest President. I don’t see a problem with this. Didn’t we say that Obama should have been down to the gulf to help out? As far as a song goes, if it is a four day event and they have to cut it to three hours, a lot of songs were cut. This seems very conspiracy to me. But I just don’t get caught up with people’s opinions of different Presidents and such. Who really cares. We should be caring about election 2010 and not a country singer who does not agree with Reagan being the greatest President ever.

“Who really cares. We should be caring about election 2010 and not a country singer who does not agree with Reagan being the greatest President ever.”

There comments are always amusing. For someone who doesn’t care, and should be caring about election 2010, you sure took time to read and write on this thread.

“Why wouldn’t a Democrat think President Clinton is the Greatest President....?”

Well, for starters, that’s a pretty asinine statement when you consider the company Clinton is privileged to share this distinction with: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson.......

I am clueless about this white power fist you speak of. Is this a southern thing or a democrat thing or a good old boy thing or a KKK thing or what??? Is it a bad thing or a good thing? Since you say McGraw is a big liberal, is this something that white liberals are all doing now? I do put my fist up in the air watching football, but I don’t want people to confuse me with being liberal.

That is true but why? It is just silly that we get upset over this. Freedom of speech for you is a right so go for it and boycott him but that means everything including his movies such as that outstanding “The Blind Side”. Can’t have it both ways.

Our family loves country music, among other genres, but I don’t take kindly to supporting liberal artists. Dixie Chick-ing these people works for us.

The “fist” the writer is referring to is the Black Panther fist, which is why he points out that if it were a conservative white guy who pulled the same stunt, the MSM and politicians would be all over him.

I attended a Carrie Underwood concert and I can tell you firsthand that when she sang Jesus, Take the Wheel/How Great Thou Art medley the crowd sang along for the Jesus part, but got eerily quiet when the How Great Thou Art part was sung. HGTA is a very old “hymn” which is no longer in use in contemporary worship, which could be why ABC chose to ignore it too. If Christians themselves have placed it in the dust bin of history, why not ABC?

Of course a “conservative white guy” wouldn’t want to channel Black Panthers anyhow.
