I hope Kerry has his concession speech ready.
Awesome! I have always kinda liked this guy, and I like his new commercial with his young daughter..
But the rock stars for Kerry are "treasonous" morons. LOL
Brooks & Dunn to Play the 2004 Republican National Convention
Award Winning Lineup to Take the Stage at Madison Square Garden
August 23, 2004
NEW YORK - Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie and Bill Harris, CEO of the 2004 Republican National Convention, today announced a second group of entertainers who will perform in New York City during the 2004 Republican National Convention. Country music superstars Brooks & Dunn, Grammy Award-winning Country singer Lee Ann Womack, Latin Grammy Nominee Jaci Velasquez, Grammy Award-winning rock band Third Day, the inspirational Gracie Rosenberger, rock band Dexter Freebish, Country star Darryl Worley, and Grammy Award-winning Donnie McClurkin join a previously announced lineup of entertainers who will take the stage at Madison Square Garden.
"We appreciate the fact that these artists are lending their time and talents to the Republican National Convention," said Chairman Gillespie. "Brooks & Dunn, Lee Ann Womack, Third Day and each of the entertainers participating in New York bring enjoyment to millions of fans and we are honored to showcase those talents during our convention."
"The Republican Party is honored to 'play the Garden' this month, and it will be a thrill to see these entertainers take the stage," said Mr. Harris. "Our program of outstanding speakers and performers will showcase the momentum and excitement of the Republican Party as we head into the fall."
Today's additions join a previously announced lineup of entertainers to perform at the 2004 Republican National Convention. The initial group includes Michael W. Smith, Daniel Rodriquez, Daize Shayne, Ron Silver, the Gatlin Brothers, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sara Evans and Dana Glover.
The 2004 Republican National Convention will be held for the first time ever in New York City at Madison Square Garden from August 30 - September 2, 2004.
The treason he speaks of is treason against rock and roll because it (rock and roll) should be apolitical. Anybody know the penalty for committing treason against rock and roll. No face paint for a year?
It would appear he is referring to himself as a treasonous moron as well, since he is spouting his political beliefs as well. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
I also think it's extremely funny that he's getting so much support around here when he is one of the guys who mainstreamed Satanism in rock music. I wonder how those over there in the Religion forum feel about him.
Nice, decent line up for GOP convention.
My favorite quote:
Concluded Cooper, "Besides, when I read the list of people who are supporting Kerry, if I wasn't already a Bush supporter, I would have immediately switched. Linda Ronstadt? Don Henley? Geez, that's a good reason right there to vote for Bush."
I wonder how those over there in the Religion forum feel about him.
No you don't and neither do I. :)
Yeah, I like the lineup, and am glad to see that Brittney Spears won't be gyrating on stage. Put her in a respectable dress and have her mingle with the newsies.
LOL! "Look like a witch that lives under a bridge"
would that be a troll? LOL!
There was a thread not too long ago about Alice turning his life around - going to church etc. He doesn't do all of his old songs anymore on tour due to the lyrics. He has a radio show at night from 7-12. I get a kick out of listening to him and wish him well.
I always liked Alice as well, now so even more!
Nice to see that there are a few of the Hollyweird crowd that have some common sense.
I think I'll go buy his greatest hits CD just to spite the filthy libs.
Talk about wanting to have your cake and eat it too.
He still dresses the way he used to, making money off of the old stuff, the old look, while exclaiming that he's a new man.
Take off the makeup, write some new songs, get out there and play 'em. Then I might buy his "conversion".
I grew up in his original era. I thought he was an idiot then, and I have yet to be convinced otherwise, and this latest diatribe is not helping him, IMHO.
I like it best when musicians ply the trade of music.
Gotta remember, ole Alice is the son of a preacher so Christian beliefs are not unfamiliar. I see his music, etc. as his onstage persona. Though I'm a Christian and enjoy his music also, my parents (very devout) think he's demonic.
To me music doesn't necessarily represent life's views. BTW, I listen to The Carpenters, Tommy Dorsey, Charlie Daniels (there's a heck of a guy!)etc. too.
Alice had his sensitive side. He wrote Only Women Bleed.
One thing...No Lie
Ethyl is as frigid as an eskimo pie
She's Cool...In Bed...
Hell, she oughtta be, cuz Ethyl's Dead...
" . . . Linda Ronstadt? Don Henley? Geez, that's a good reason right there to vote for Bush."
Couldn't have said it better, myself.
