GRAMMY’s … shut up and vote for talent not politics.
The Grammy and MSM should be ashamed of themselves. To get even at George W. Bush they now find it ok to vote for the Dixie Chicks and their anti-Bush agenda rather than voting for what was the best and most talented music artists. What a pathetic shame that The Grammy’s would penalize other hard working and talented music artists for a political agenda. I wonder how those who got screwed last night feel?
So the music artists who just write and play great music are punished because the Grammy voters wish to make a political statement. That’s music? Liberal hate and an agenda has now permeated the music industry to the point where musicians cannot receive awards fairly?
“I think people are using their freedom of speech with all these awards. We get the message.” (Natalie Maines)
By the way Dixie Chicks, as Lorie Byrd at Wizbang so well stated it,
The Dixie Chicks did not get “whacked” by the government. If anyone “whacked” them it was their fans who like their music without political sermonizing, thank you very much. It was the country fans who chose in droves to stop buying their CDs and told DJ’s they didn’t want to hear them on the radio.
What a better way that the Grammy’s slapped back at all the Country fans who disowned these three a long time ago … award them Country Album of the Year. Who are you kidding? Country fans used their freedom of speech a long time ago and told the “Chicks” to go packing.
