    War Support Songs Invade Airwaves Antiwar Songs Played Less SAN DIEGO -- Radio listeners may be hearing more songs in support of the war, than opposition, 10News reported. "I like Iraq's chances of winning the war than hearing an antipatriotic song or un-American song on a country station," country radio station KSON 97.3 program director John Dibeck said. Dibeck was recently forced to deal with the issue head on when the lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, Natalie Maines, said to a London audience, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."

    CMT: Earlier this year, Natalie Maines said in an interview that she hated your song "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue." Our message boards went crazy after that. Do you think comments like that can get blown out of proportion? TK: I think the only thing that got blown out of proportion is that they said there was a feud. I barely even commented on the situation. I've been told that she went in some major publications and made four or five [comments] like we were lobbing the ball back and forth. But it's America. She can think...

    Ashamed of the Red, White & Blue Award First Place Phil Donahue: “Let me tell you what is impressive. You’re not wearing a flag. Well, I don’t want to damn you with my praise, but I say hip-hip-hooray for that, and I think you gave the right answer when you spoke at Northwestern University....” Tom Brokaw: “Right. I said, you know, I wear a flag in my heart, but I think if you wear a flag, it’s a suggestion somehow that you’re endorsing what the administration is doing at the time. And I don’t think journalists ought to be wearing...

  • Those 9/11 Songs: Are you with Springsteen or Keith?

    National Review Online ^ | August 27, 2002 | Stanley Kurtz
    Bruce or Toby? That is the question. Is rueful lament a better answer to 9/11 than robust anger? The media elite have unquestionably opted for Bruce Springsteen's sad-song meditation on last September's tragedy. Not without reason, since Springsteen's The Rising brings the spirit and wit of "the Boss" at his best to bear upon the unbearable. As for me, I'll take country star Toby Keith — with his angry vow to kick al Qaeda butt; his unashamed love for his country; his grateful respect for the men and women who risk their lives to defend us; and his thumb-in-the-eye...

    A redneck country singer is tops with the guys in uniform. No wonder Dubya invited him to the White House Driving across America is to traverse a mosaic of local radio stations. Outside the metropolitan areas, two kinds of programme dominate: the God channels and "C&W". Bible-bashers threatening hellfire and fat guys with silly hats, twanging geetars, fu-manchus and pony tails, serenading purty gals, Chevy Tahoes, bars duskily lit by Budweiser neon, and the "real" values of red neck and blue collar. Both are profoundly ideological - country even more so than the Lord in these post-9/11 times. Country is...

    NBC’s Today has yet to feature a segment with Toby Keith, singer of the #1 country hit, the pro-U.S. song “Courtesy of the Red White & Blue” which honors American soldiers, but on Monday it showcased Steve Earle and his yet-to-be-released tribute to the American Taliban, “John Walker's Blues.” Matt Lauer interviewed him and allowed him to sing the song in its entirety.      In a July 21 story, “Twisted Ballad Honors Tali-rat,” the New York Post’s Aly Sujo described Earle’s song:       “American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh is glorified and called Jesus-like in a country-rock song to...

    This is from the Los Angeles Daily news which is part of the Los Angeles Newspaper group,so I've only posted an's a great article. Use the link for more. It's been years since country crooner Toby Keith cared what you thought about him. His independent attitude was born long before he grabbed headlines recently for a swaggering jingoistic anthem celebrating the kicking of Taliban butt. Although Keith has long been a top country attraction, it wasn't until ABC News anchor Peter Jennings reportedly booted him off an Independence Day special (the network denies he was ever booked) that everybody...

    TOBY KEITH PUSHED OFF STAGE IN ALABAMA!? In Huntsville, Alabama Wednesday evening, Toby Keith was stopped once again from singing his current hit, Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American). No, it wasn`t Peter Jennings this time, it was wrestler, Jeff Jarrett, who stormed on stage and pushed Toby, knocking his microphone across the stage. The crowd at the NWA-TNA: Total Nostop Action pay-per-view went wild as Toby held his ground against Jarrett who wanted Keith off so the main event (his match with Buff Bagwell) could start. TOBY GETS REVENGE When Toby finally left the stage,...

    CNN ^ | 7/4/02
    Did anyone see Toby Keith on CNN with Wolf Blitzer? It was a rather extended interview, and Keith was able to speak his piece and sing the song Peter Jennings forbade. Keith said that Jennings was dishonest, that he (Toby Keith) had the paper trail to prove it. He said Peter Jennings had been "talking smack." It was great to see. Wolf Blitzer applauded after Keith finished singing and told him that Keith had a large audience on CNN.
  • ABC Moving Past Keith Flap For July 4

    Filed at 1:41 p.m. ET NEW YORK (AP) -- Hey, Toby Keith, how about this: Peter Jennings owns one of your CDs. Jennings, preparing for his ``PJ the DJ'' debut as host of a three-hour ABC musical special on the Fourth of July, is a country fan who has Keith's 2001 album, ``Pull My Chain,'' in his collection. Keith lashed out at Jennings and ABC last month for not including his Sept. 11-themed song, ``Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American),'' in the special. ABC said Keith was considered but not invited because he insisted on opening...

    I normally don't listen to Dr. Laura but by chance today she had a winning idea from a listener who was doing the following.Toby Keith has been removed from the star-studded gala with ABC for the 4th of July because Peter Jennings was upset with the fact that the song "Courtesy of the Red, White , and Blue" makes refernce to a 'boot up the ass'. This person has taken it upon herself, as a personal friend of Toby Keith, to honor him and make Peter Jennings understand American Patriotism. She cut a deal with a large shipper to send...
