WASHINGTON (AP) — Country music gets its due at the Obama White House next week.

The Obamas will play host to a string of country stars — legendary and contemporary — Monday at their seventh “In Performance at the White House” program.

Some of the performers also will take part in an afternoon workshop at the White House for 120 local students about the history of country music and its cultural significance.

Barack is desperate to find a new “body man.” First the contest among the NBA stars, now this one.

There are some pretty sexy country stars, but I don’t know if any of them are enamored enough of Zero to “help him dress” each morning.

I wonder if Andy Griffith will be making an appearance.


He is a FLAMING Liberal Democrat, you know..? I’m from North Carolina — natives know.

The country stars who go to this will pay a price. I guess it is hard to decline an invitation to the White House, but they will piss off their fans big time. Except Lyle Lovett and James Taylor, who aren’t country.

I was just picturing Kinky Friedman in the Rose Garden singing”They Don’t Make Jews Like Jesus Anymore”

I saw him at a book reading in a blue state (he writes those lesbo hating mysteries) and he was telling about an appearance at a Barnes and Noble bookstore in Kansas City where he had a guitar with him, and intoned “They Don’t make Jews...” provoking a mini riot among the blue haired ladies who came to see him.

I’m sure that Barry and Michelle have quite a mix of country, rap, and hip hop on their iPods.

I think it would be a nice gesture if he invited Hank William Jr.

Next on the agenda, Obama will have a Hitler Festival in the Rose Garden.

I hope his wife doesn't wear Daisy Dukes.

That would create a fabric shortage and drive prices sky high.

Among those performing Monday night: Lauren Alaina, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett, Mickey, Darius Rucker and James Taylor.

Sure sounds like the left wing of country. Kristofferson is a Sandinista lover.

Nor will Toby Keith. (Maybe Toby will “put a boot in buckwheats ass” the American way. (I could only hope)

Dierka Bentleys wife is a big lib/femme on the Nashville circuit...like Paisley.....you could see it coming with him after they married....and hes from Phoenix....no more country than Brad or Krauss

The Band Perry surprises me...they are children from the precise environment I grew up from north Jackson Mississpi-Madison county environs....where 90 % vote anti left....whites anyhow

Maybe they went to Millsaps....(dig)
