Dang, ya just had to bring that up. Yet, I was only tryin' to reference their similar music and the music industry b-s. You did read the thread article, right? I liked hearin' that Toby ain't gonna Nashville-package anymore or any longer. How 'bout you? Toby is a dem and Willie is also. Willie played the game longer than most, then said... Heck, if someone has been a conservative since G-d first knew 'em, then glory to 'em... never made that promise, myself. How ya feel about Emmy Lou or the Greatest Folks of Country Music? They were are all dem's. lol...by the by, the jane fonda reference is outta line.

I have been a life long fan of country music. I grew up in Mississippi and as a kid in the forties and at home the radio was always on a country station. That was the era of Hank Williams, Sr., Earnest Tubb, Roy Acuff, Eddie Arnold, Kitty Wells, Hank Snow, Little Jimmie Dickens, Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys, Bob Wills, etc. I had a good grounding in country music.
I then moved to Louisiana and have spent the last forties years in Texas. I remember the early Willie Nelson music and in Texas I knew a lot of Willie fans that followed him everywhere although I never met Willie. I was never a concert goer. I was, however, a big fan of Willie.
Since I live in Dallas I knew of the Dixie Chicks before they became famous. I was very happy for them when they made it big and I did like their music.
That is why I was so disappointed when they and Willie turned out to be supporters of liberal causes. I am not talking about being a Democrat, I know hundreds of old time conservative Democrats, I am talking about liberal. As a result I still listen to their music when it comes on the radio but I will not support them in anyway, financial or as a fan.
I knew that Jane Fonda had implications I did not intend, I almost said Barbra Streisand, but her name popped in my mind first so I went with it.
