Battle of the Veterans

Garth-Brooks-Reba-McEntire-CountryMusicIsLove

We have polled our readers and followers about their favorite new and current hit-making artists. However, there is a whole class of artists who were (intentionally) left off these lists. Those artists are the ones who helped shape country music into the force it is today. Without these individuals who paved the way for the new artists you all know and love, country music may still be struggling to find its way on to the proverbial music map. Those artists are your beloved country music veterans (defined as those who were prominent in country music prior to the 21st Century)!

Let’s duke it out, country music lovers! Vote for your favorite female and male country music veterans and the winners will jump in the ring and go head-to-head to determine Keepin’ It Country‘s all time favorite veteran! Keep it classy, country folks. We all have different tastes and none of us is wrong for our choices. A good, friendly battle is healthy for the soul, but a Hatfield and McCoy situation is better left in the Old West!

POLL: Should Kacey Musgraves Have Been Censored at the CMAs?

Kacey Musgraves CMAs

CMA New Artist of the Year, Kacey Musgraves, was censored during her performance of her single, “Follow Your Arrow.” at the CMA Awards on Wednesday night. The word targeted was “joint” and it was bleeped out of the ABC television broadcast. Twitter was abuzz with whether the censorship was necessary. It seemed a bit surprising since content much more inappropriate is and was permitted to be aired. All I have to say is that if drug references were always censored from broadcast TV, some hip-hop artists may have no lyrics left to sing.

Anyway, we want to know your opinion. Do you think Musgraves’ “joint” lyric should have been censored?

 

Should the CMA Awards have censored Kacey Musgraves performance?
