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.

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.
Not gonna help you, RINO
Quarter century, eh? Still don’t think Hank done it that a way.
“Boot Scootin’ GOPe”
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 do not listen to that kind of radio, so I wouldn’t know.
I saw it on TV
Then again, a bird sings prettily too, but it doesn't mean there's a brain in it's head.
well this lucky guy wont have much work to do for all the money he will be paid...
there’s not that much to defend..
Article says it is a radio spot and there a You Tube of it at the source.
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.
LOL! Give the useful idiots more facetime. Throw the Dixie Chicks in Lamar.
“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 wanted to send you a quick note and thank you very much for your recent donation to our insurgent campaign against Senator Alexander. We are seeing a huge uptick in excitement of our campaign over the last two weeks
I wanted to invite you to our 7th Annual Tbones and Politics Fundraiser. Since you have recently given a gracious donation to our campaign I would like to extend a complementary invitation to the event.
I have attached the invitation to the event to this email that has all the details you will need.
If you are able to attend please just email me back with whether you would like chicken or steak and if steak how you would like it cooked.
Thank you again for your support of our campaign and please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you,
Joe Carr for U.S. Senate
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 Wasnt 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.
Their best song is "I Believe".
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.
