Which Country Music Stars Endorse Trump?

Brad Paisley and Trump


Beside Loretta Lynn (who thinks Trump ‘is the only one who’s going to turn this country around’), Kid Rock (is he even country? I don’t know but he is ‘digging Donald Trump’) and Kenny Rodgers (who has declared: ‘He can be president and not owe anybody anything; he’s one of the few people who has the money to do it, and has the guts to do it), who other country star is supporting Trump? Country music is conservative land, we expect fans to endorse the Republican candidate, and the confederate flag, and for each Dixie Chicks, there are at least 10 white rednecks who are reinforcing the clichés. Rural America beyond the south is largely politically uniform and very probably supporting Trump, and these same people also listen to country music

But who else in country music is endorsing Trump?

Justin Moore is a big one. Never heard of him? Me neither, but he is signed to Big Machine Records and has charted eleven times on the Hot Country Songs, with several number ones such as ‘Small Town USA’, ‘If Heaven Wasn’t so far Away’, ‘You Look Like I Need a Drink’, a whole program and he even won the award for New Artist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2014…. At the beginning of this year, he said this during an episode of CMT After Midnite:

‘I said a couple of years ago that for the Republican Party to get in the White House it was going to take something completely out of the box in order to make that happen. I think Trump is doing that.’…’I like the fact that he evokes a sense of winning, you know? I know it’s offensive to some people, and I’m not going to say I agree with everything he says, clearly. I think he’s just wacky enough to actually go do it. He doesn’t like to lose. I think he’ll win for our country if he were to get in there.’

So it’s not a totally enthusiastic endorsement, it’s just based on ‘he doesn’t like to lose, he is a winner’, such an embarrassing and simplistic statement, Soy un perdedor, so why don’t you kill me? I am tired of people who think that running a country has to be seen in terms of losers and winners and I am also’ tired of this fake ‘out of the box’ image people are ready to give to Trump. He is deep inside the box, has always schmoozed with politicians and officials, cozy with the rich inside and outside the country.

Country singer songwriter John Rich (Lonestar, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson) has also endorsed Trump, and you have to know he also won the fourth season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, so that could explain a lot. Last year, he said this to Fox News: ‘I’m glad to see Donald Trump step in. I mean, he’s the only guy that’s gonna say it like he says it. You know, I think whether you agree with everything he says or not, at least you got a guy there who’s not pulling any punches with you. He’s gonna tell you exactly what he thinks, exactly what he feels.’

This idea that Donald Trump says exactly what he thinks shows how delusional these people are, Trump doesn’t even know where he stands on a considerable amount of issues, it simply depends on the time and the audience… he has taken numerous positions that exactly contradict what he has previously said, he doesn’t even know if he is a conservative or a liberal, he said it both, it just depends on the interview,… pro-life, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, anti-gay marriage, he said it all, every proposition you can think about, Trump has made it — Politico has a nice list — Don’t people see that?

American country and gospel singer and songwriter Larry Wayne Gatlin is another Trump supporter. He is best known for his 80’s band, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, and he told FOX Business back in June:’ He’s an old friend of mine, Donald doesn’t really make friends — he takes hostages. So I’ve been a hostage for over 40 years. He’s been very nice to me,’ and whatever this means, this is scary. Then he was even ready to give Trump some advise: ‘Talk about really what you’re going to do with ISIS… I want to see how you are going to take 11 million people on day two of your presidency and, you know, put them on trains and all that, get them to [go] back to Mexico. Come on Donald, we don’t believe that, it’s not going to happen… I’ll vote for him but I’m not going to tell anybody else to’. He seems to think his friend is crazy, but he is gonna vote for him anyway.

Another mixed endorsement came from Aaron Lewis, who is borderline country, but since his last release ‘Sinner’ is his third country album and features Willie Nelson, I will includes him here. He is a conservative and has declared this to Billboard:

‘Listen, I like the fact Donald Trump has come in and shaken things up and said a whole lot of things the establishment doesn’t want to hear him say and the people did want to hear him say. But at the same time, there’s an expectation for somebody being presidential in nature, and he disappoints me with the bickering and the name-calling. It’s just not very presidential behavior. But I would certainly vote for him if he becomes the candidate.’

Aaron Lewis should be prepared to be even more disappointed with the name calling in the following weeks.

Robert John Burck, aka Naked Cowboy has also declared his support but does he even count? He only performs in the strrets of Times Square. He tried to run himself for president in the 2012 US election as a Tea Party candidate, so you can be ready for the worst. And this is even worst than what you think, in an interview he declared: ‘Donald Trump is a freaking red-blooded American man. He’s tall, he’s handsome, he’s strong, he successful – these are things you can’t argue with,’ and even though he finds the Donald’s hair a bit weird, he can’t stop praising him: ‘The guy’s like Superman. He’s a leader to guard and protect our country.’ Burck is obviously completely blind (Trump is handsome?) and a pure idiot, or both which is confirmed by the rest of the conversation when he compares himself to Trump.

Then there are all the other ones, who haven’t publicly spoken but it doesn’t mean they don’t have opinions. Actually I could spend a month on Twitter and find more of them, but who has time? Joe Bonsall (The Oak Ridge Boys) tweeted the following: ‘Every second that I watch ‪#DNCinPhilly makes me more and more want to vote for @realDonaldTrump … My head is exploding…’ which is almost an endorsement.

But I kept the best for the end, I found the picture above in Trump’s Twitter feed with the caption ‘.‪@BradPaisley came up to see me. A really nice and talented guy’. Does it mean that Brad Paisley support Trump? No, but it doesn’t look he is for Hillary! And tweets by fans like the ones below, give you a hint about what’s going on at Paisley’s concerts, and there are tons like these. Then, there was this episode narrated by Billboard back in November. Paisley made an opening number for the CMA, that was actually not shown because it featured Trump. He actually recorded a version of The Judds’ ‘Love Can Build A Bridge’ called, ‘Trump Can Build A Bridge,’ which featured Trump as Oz. ‘Like, I am Trump, the great and powerful,’ Paisley said. Sure this could have been a parody, not necessary a praise, but Paisley gets too close to the Trump man for my taste.

    It’s worth noting Paisley plays both sides. He did a couple White House shows for Obama and had that song that praised the Stars n Bars a few years ago.

    Anyway, if you take the widespread believe that everyone who’s going to vote for Trump is stupid, hateful and bigoted you’re basically saying that anywhere from a third to almost half the country is either mentally ill or subhuman. The people in England surprised by Brexit made the same mistake. Whatever happens in November, this has been coming for a long time.

    While it’s obvious we can’t get along or come together in this country, the decisions and conditions that have led to writing off a certain segment of the populace deemed unfit or obsolete has been disastrous for the future. The rage that has developed is not going away.

    What the hell is wrong with you, what better honor is to play for President Trump.. I will never see you in the same light again… Traitor. I will not Support you ever again. Are you Not a Patriot. or a money grubber ??? Get off you ass and rethink this over. This Message is to all that refuse to Play for The President. I never thought I’d see this action from a bunch of Cowards.

        Not a trump guy but I must say. Simple minded is the left. The ONLY reason you idiots voted for Obama was because he’s “supposedly black”. That’s the ONLY reason… That’s as simple minded as it gets.

    • Josh

      My Grandfather refused to support Hitler. I refuse to support Trump. Hate and authoritarianism is not respected here or by anyone that stands for Freedom, Liberty, and Justice for all.

    • herbert fellows

      Charles Lowrance, you have some serious mental issues to deal with. GET HELP!

    • Kenny

      They are crying real bad now. Trump has turned this country around, but the left is so angry that Hillary lost, they are trying to do anything to smear his name.
      It’s actually turning a lot of Democrats away from the crap their party is trying to do.

    What have we done? Disheartening that so many are deceived by this robber of common workers, tax evader, champion of higher Medicare age, advocate for self-pay healthcare, proclaimed new-King, friend of the white supremacists, boastful pussy-grabber, and hater of anyone who isn’t white, male, rich, and already powerful.

    I feel sorry for the liberals that put their time and effort writing articles that spew hate and divide us as Americans. President Trump’s has not been given a Chance to be anything because of people who write unintelligent articles that are written like a 4th grade child. You point out comments by Trump supportes as if they had no business voting because they lack your same intelligents. Let me ask you this.. Was Hillary Clinton the better solution? I would love to hear the dumb comments from the majority of celebrties that DID vote for her and their reasons why. #1 She’s a woman. So?? #2 She has experience being a politician. So like lying, being fake, and while taking American money and accomplishing nothing for the greater good of America? Hell ya, I vote for change. I voted for Trump. Until you show me better. He’s the only hope we have. So shut up and let’s see what we can do if we UNITE as Americans and pledge our allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
    and to the Republic
    for which it stands,
    one Nation under God,
    with liberty and justice for all.

      Trump is the sex pest of sex pests. A creepy liar. He deserves everything coming to him……..Nothing in this world happens by accident. He has built his own Gallows from the ground up. Give him time to hang himself…
      Apparently audio of him discussing stormy with his bullied lawyer to come. And payment?
      Russia collusion just round the corner?

      digusting anti american activity. Bubba can’t have it both ways. You stand for the flag or you do not.

      Guys is making America a laughing stock.

    • Cathy

      I agree. The far left that have went off the deep end won’t give him a chance. They are causing all kinds of chaos and making fools of themselves. The Dem party really has some issues, especially when they start dictating how everyone should vote. Thank time I checked this is a free country. We can have our own opinions and don’t have to retort to name calling and treating a sitting President like the Maxine Waters and the View do. They are just awful evil people.

    • herbert fellows

      People who write ‘unintelligent articles’? If you are going to question anyone’s intelligence, you should at least try to write something vaguely intelligent, not to mention spelling and grammar.

    • Connor Mcgregor

      All you know is “Crooked Hilary” …you know nothing about it…..know why? Because it is empty..Without fact/…..however stormy daniels? russia? anti american activity?..a rich sex pest tricked you. Promised you everything…delivered nothing….you deserve all you get Dumb balls.

      • Cathy

        HE Is most definitely delivering and making America great. If you can’t see that well they you are off the deep end. The Dems want to cut President Trump down on every little thing but they are not adult enough to work with him on anything. The Dem party has turned into a 3 ring circus and we the people will not ever vote for them ever again. They are too childish to be in public offices

    Trump is far from being a Nazi. Would a Nazi have negotiated with Rocket man and get our KIA soldiers remains back from North Korea and get a nuclear disarmament deal? Has any president to date been able to do that? He called his bluff and took care of business. Little Rocket man thought he could scare us into submission. Trump called his bluff. Do you thing that little turd wanted to be blasted off the face of the earth? No, and that’s what would’ve happened if he had fired a missile. He would’ve been blasted to dust and he knew it. So far I have seen President Trump do things many past presidents failed at. I’m a disabled Veteran and I am far from being a Nazi, KKK, racist white supremisist, but that’s what I am called when I say I voted for Trump. He may be crass and rude but that’s what it takes to get things done. I’m against bringing in terrorists from Muslim countries. I’m all for closing our borders. America has an obligation to legal citizens. We have homeless Americans who should take priority over migrants and refugees from other countries. Democrats and liberals are communists. They want socialism in America, America was not founded on a socialist idea. We are not a democracy either, as our Constitution states we are a REPUBLIC, as in the phrase, “AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! I am a soldier, I took the oath with hand on heart to defend my country against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. For me that oath was for life. I believe strongly in our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights and will fight until my death to keep this country as free as the day the Constitution was signed. Liberty and freedom will never be out of style. The Constitution has served us well so far. If we give in to socialism we face the same problems as Russia, France, Sweden, Germany and other socialist countries. They have no rights. Now they are rising up in revolution because they have finally woke up and realized that. Communism is poison to freedom and we have a large communist group in America trying to take our freedoms. You will never take my guns or my right to speak my mind. This proud American Veteran WOMAN, will fight tyranny here at home. I refuse to be a victim, I own guns and have a concealed pistol license and carry one at all times. I live in the woods 50 miles from the nearest city. When I travel I want to be protected. Every woman who is allowed by law should carry a gun. There would be fewer rapes and murders if they did. My granddaughter carries and has a concealed weapons license and we bought her a hun for her birthday. My son and daughter also own guns. We are law abiding citizens and have that right. Democrats stand for disarming American citizens and making us vulnerable to attack. Do you think criminals will willingly give up their guns? Hell no they won’t and neither will I. Where I live there have been lives saved by a citizen carrying a gun and taking out a shooter. Guns save lives. In the military we are told we don’t have to like a person because of their rank but we need to respect the office and rank they hold. I see Democrat snowflakes who are throwing an elaborate temper tantrum because they refuse to accept the election results. These are the people who think people who don’t win a trophy should get one for participating. If you lose you don’t deserve a trophy. Trophies are for the winners! America is being weakened by liberals and our enemies see that. How long before we are invaded? Oh, wait, we’ve already been invaded on September 1st 2001, by terrorists flying our own planes into the Twin Towers and now by our own people, liberals trying to bring us to our knees by inciting violence in the form of Antifa. I’ve seen these fascists at work. They verbally and physically attack anyone who apposes thier liberal outlook. I was standing next to a person at a legal rally who was hit near the eye with a ball bearing from a slingshot in the hands of an Antifa member just for supporting Trump. If you support this behavior then you are a traitor to this country. If you don’t like it here then move to France or Germany. Please America, don’t let our country fall, fight to keep America free.

    And you’re an absolute idiot if you believe that’s the only reason people voted for Obama.
