WAS THE LARGEST  MASS KILLING IN AMERICAN HISTORY A POLITICALLY MOTIVATED MASSACRE?

ARE REPUBLICANS FROM NASHVILLE? ARE DEMOCRATS  FROM FUNKYTOWN?

It’s a familiar stereotype: COUNTRY-MUSIC FANS ARE REPUBLICANS; POP AND HIP-HOP LISTENERS ARE DEMOCRATS. Well, according to a (2012) not brand new analysis by the Echo Nest,

those stereotypes happen to strike pretty close to the truth.

 WHICH ARTISTS ARE THE KEY ‘TELLS?

August 19, 2016

ERIC CHURCH is an American country music singer songwriter

 “We have a broken political system. It’s been broken a while. And there is a lot of anger. There is a lot of discontent. It’s very important that we don’t dismiss it,” says Church, adding that it might be time for leaders to readjust their priorities.

“I THINK ALL OF OUR POLITICIANS NEED TO TAKE A HARD LOOK AT WHAT THEIR GOALS ARE AND WHERE WE’RE HEADED. BECAUSE I THINK A LOT OF THE ANGER IS AGAINST THE POLITICAL SYSTEM, AND THAT CAN BE DANGEROUS IF IT CONTINUES TO GET WORSE.”

August 19, 2016  ERIC CHURCH “It’s a pretty charged-up time right now.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE ALL HAVE TO GET ALONG. I DON’T CARE WHAT YOUR BELIEF IS – WE CAN’T KILL EACH OTHER. IT CAN’T HAPPEN THAT WAY,” CHURCH SAYS, REFERRING TO RECENT VIOLENCE IN THE STATES. 

“There’s a lot of racial tension in this country, a lot of authoritative tension with police, and I think all that stuff makes for a tumultuous time.”

It’s a familiar stereotype: COUNTRY-MUSIC FANS ARE REPUBLICANS; POP AND HIP-HOP LISTENERS ARE DEMOCRATS. Well, according to a new analysis by the Echo Nest, those stereotypes happen to strike pretty close to the truth.

The Echo Nest, whose platform powers the customized webcasts at Spotify and iHeartRadio, among other sites, uses sophisticated analytical tools to categorize songs for the sake of generating compelling playlists. It also has been developing (anonymized) “taste profiles” of listeners based on their use of those sites and the feedback they provide.

The company recently looked at those profiles to see if there was any correlation between political affiliation and listening habits. Its chief technologist, Brian Whitman, put it this way in a blog post Thursday morning:

“CAN WE TELL IF SOMEONE IS A REPUBLICAN JUST FROM HIS OR HER ITUNES COLLECTION?

AND IF SO, WHICH ARTISTS ARE THE KEY ‘TELLS’ FOR BOTH SIDES?”

As it happens, many of the profiles included information volunteered by the users about the politicians they supported. The company took the profiles with unambiguous party affiliations, then fed half of them into its “statistical machine learning classifiers”

to try to come up with a model for identifying Republicans and Democrats from their taste profiles alone.

JASON ALDEAN is an American country music singer songwriter.

 Blacklisted After What He Just Said About Trump

Jason Aldean scored a hit song a few years back with “FLY OVER STATES,” a song about the men and women in the heartland of America who don’t often feel their voices are heard in the media and politics.

“The common man is highly underestimated” Jason tells “Rolling Stone.”

Jason says that Donald Trump spoke directly to those working class Americans, which is a big reason he is now the President-elect.

Nov 5, 2010 – Former President George W. Bush said it was a “huge mistake” for him to have been photographed during a flyover. . On the way back to DC, AF-1 flies over New Orleans, Gulfport, Biloxi and Mobile, ….

———————————————————————————-

This latest presidential election made that divide even more pronounced, and Jason has seen it play out everywhere.

“The common man is highly underestimated” Jason tells “Rolling Stone.” “I heard a lady say it on the news the other day. She’s talking about Trump speaking to people who made under 60 grand a year. And she’s in New York, and she says, ‘To be honest, I don’t even know anybody that makes under 60 grand a year.’ No offense, but that’s where I came from. And that’s the issue. The common person out there, the everyday guy who is going to work and wanting a normal life for his family, he doesn’t work on Wall Street … that guy still has a voice. And there is a lot of them out there who feel like they’re forgotten about.”

Jason says that Donald Trump spoke directly to those working class Americans, which is a big reason he is now the President-elect.

Jason adds, “Trump, like the guy or not, he was out there busting his butt on the campaign trail, talking to these people and putting it in laymen’s terms for them, listening to what they had to say. He wasn’t just focusing on the big companies and the big cities. He was digging in to the heartland of America. You saw those people come out in a big way to support that because they want to feel like they have a voice, too. He shocked the world with that.”

Jason goes on to say that he didn’t vote this year because he recently moved to a new county and didn’t get registered in time. That’s not to say he didn’t want to cast his ballot.

“Trust me, I wanted to,” Jason says. “This is the first year I haven’t [voted] since I can remember.”

When asked whether he would have voted for Trump, Jason declined to answer.

“That’s one subject I do stay away from,” he explains. “Politics is a no-win.”

ERIC CHURCH is an American country music singer and songwriter.

Eric Church Shares His Take on Politics and a ‘Broken’ System

Following the release of his powerful new song, “Kill a Word,” Eric Church is opening up about his thoughts on the presidential election and current political system.

CHURCH’S RECENT SINGLE IS ALL ABOUT THE POWER OF WORDS, BOTH TO HEAL AND TO HARM.

And according to an interview with Rolling Stone, Church says that the song is especially relevant given the current social and political climate of the United States.

“I’ve never had a song that felt more meaningful and relevant than this one,” says Church. “It’s something that people need to hear.”

The song is especially “relevant,” Church proclaims, because America is in the middle of one of the most chaotic seasons we’ve seen in recent years, both when it comes to politics and even how we interact with one another on a daily basis.

“It’s a pretty charged-up time right now. At the end of the day, we all have to get along. I don’t care what your belief is – we can’t kill each other. It can’t happen that way,” Church says, referring to recent violence in the States. “There’s a lot of racial tension in this country, a lot of authoritative tension with police, and I think all that stuff makes for a tumultuous time.”

Going on to speak about the current presidential election, Church admits that what he sees when traveling the country as a famous country singer is what many of us see in our own communities and neighborhoods.

“We have a broken political system. It’s been broken a while. And there is a lot of anger. There is a lot of discontent. It’s very important that we don’t dismiss it,” says Church, adding that it might be time for leaders to readjust their priorities. “I think all of our politicians need to take a hard look at what their goals are and where we’re headed. Because I think a lot of the anger is against the political system, and that can be dangerous if it continues to get worse.”

And when it comes to the candidates? Church says he hasn’t made up his mind about who to vote for in November, mostly because he doesn’t trust politicians and their ability to affect real change. But he does have hope when it comes to local government.

“People feeling certain ways and feeling that anger and angst is the bigger issue. I don’t believe it’s something a president can fix,” he says. “To me, the most powerful people in this country, politically, are mayors. If you took all the mayors of the 25 biggest cities and you got them together, you could do more on that level than you ever could through the bureaucracy in Washington. For me, it is more community-based. We have to fix it at a lower floor, before a president comes in.”

This isn’t the first time Church has spoken out about politics and the 2016 presidential race, likening it more to a WWE match than a process to select a new leader of the United States. But at the end of the day, it looks like Church is staying focused on his music more than politics. The award-winning country star just announced his 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour that will feature three-hour solo shows sure to delight fans.

SAM HUNT is an American country music singer and songwriter.

Before he started singing, Sam’s initial goal was to be a professional football player.

HE PLAYED FOOTBALL ALL THE WAY UP TO THE COLLEGE LEVEL, AND EVEN PLAYED BRIEFLY FOR THE NFL.

Sam’s religion is unknown. Some do consider him non-religious since there is no information on his faith and he doesn’t seem to sing about it. Sam currently enjoys singing and writing country music.  His still really loves football and enjoys watching it.

Sam has never shown any interest in politics. In one interview he did say that he would invite Obama, as one of his three hypothetical dinner guests. It seems like he might support the Democratic party, or he might just really like Obama.
