Lamar Alexander Recruits Kix Brooks to Defend Conservative Record
Breitbart ^ | June 23, 2014 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 06/23/2014 5:41:36 AM PDT by don-o

Country music star Kix Brooks has been recruited by Sen. Lamar Alexander for a new radio ad to defend his conservative record in the Senate.

“I like having a United States Senator that stays true to his conservative roots, and keeps his feet on the ground here at home,” Brooks says.

Brooks, one half of superstar country music duo Brooks & Dunn, is also the host of the popular radio show “American Country Countdown” and “Kickin’ It With Kix.”

Brooks reminds Tennessee anglers that Alexander worked with Rand Paul to fight the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers attempt to restrict fishing below the dams.

I am not a fan of what is sold as "country" music today, so I have never heard of him. If someone gets an interview, I would like to see him answer, "What is a Conservative?" Come to think of it, that's also a good question for Lamar!

Brooks & Dunn are old timers. They were putting out records a quarter century ago. Not to be associated with the “modern” country music of today.

The internals from the Alexander camp must not be looking good. Then one wonders what is in Kix’s closet that the NSA has record of?

I think this ad first appeared in 2013 during the flap about the new lock in Kentucky

I've listened to Brooks and Dunn pretty much since they started. Great music, IMO.

Then again, a bird sings prettily too, but it doesn't mean there's a brain in it's head.

I did go to You Tube to give a listen and picked out “Play Something Country.” Sounded like they “borrowed” ZZ Top’s interpretation of 12 bar blues (as in “Sharp Dressed Man”) and made a song celebrating a sexually aggressive female on the prowl.

Compare and contrast to “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels”.

I guess dusting off the old flannel shirt and pickup truck aren’t enough this time. Gotta bring in some country music talent, as if they are the judges and jury on what is conservative. Its time for Lamar to go.

“Brooks reminds Tennessee anglers that Alexander worked with Rand Paul to fight the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers attempt to restrict fishing below the dams.”

Yep, that was one of the burning issues of the day. I’m glad that Alexander was able to go to bat for us on that instead of spending time on relatively unimportant things like border enforcement, reducing immigration levels, reducing spending, cutting federal departments, reeling in the IRS, EPA, etc., etc.

I was remarking that I thought their music generally pleasing, I wasn't assessing it for it's moralistic virtue.

Compare and contrast to “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels”.

Grew up listening to older country because of my folks, but never liked the majority of it. The nasality of the tone is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

To most “CONSERVATIVE” politicians, conservative is not a word with meaning but a one word obligatory campaign slogan directed at their constituents who actually are conservative.

This will certainly offend their fans, but I always thought Brooks and Dunn were the gayest looking country artists of all time.

I am not sure how sharp the Carr campaign is. I would like to see it highlighting the media buys that Lamar! is making and the faux messages he is sending.

Then say something like: “Lamar Alexander has spent $xxx,xxx trying to convince you that he does not own his record. Creating a Clone Candidate is clearly an expensive proposition. Tennesseeans can see right through that.”

I'm back to listening to the same station I listened to 40 years ago as a teenager. WNOX LOL. I never cared for Books & Dunn music. Od Country, Old Rock, Bluegrass, & Gospel is it for me.
