Are You A Country Music Fan? You May Change Your Mind After You See This List Of Anti-Gun Country Artists

Country music has always been the music of the people. Songs about everyday life living in the country. Songs about the real world with real struggles and joy, not made-up pop music fantasies.

And because it’s the music of real people who deal with real life, country music has always tended to lean towards being pro-freedom and friendly to guns.

But that seems to be changing. TasteofCountry.com recently shared a list of nineteen different country music artists and groups who have expressed some support for gun control. These artists are:

  • Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
  • Maren Morris
  • Tyler Hubbard (Florida Georgia Line)
  • Reba McEntire
  • Eric Church
  • Taylor Swift
  • Dierks Bentley
  • Lady Antebellum
  • Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook (Little Big Town)
  • Brothers Osborne
  • Rosanne Cash
  • Sturgill Simpson
  • Margo Price
  • Lee Brice
  • Lori McKenna
  • Cam
  • Kristian Bush (Sugarland)
  • Jennifer Nettles
  • Josh Abbott Band’s Caleb Keeter

There’s some serious star power in that list, and, sadly, many of the people on this list talk about how they grew up with guns but that “nobody needs a semiautomatic or automatic weapon,” or they talk about how we can all agree that nobody needs to be able to buy that many guns.

And, once again, we have a situation where people are mouthing off about stuff that they know nothing about. I’ll grant that they may know about how to shoot a gun or about gun safety, but it’s abundantly clear that these people don’t understand what happens during a mass shooting or other gun violence in this country.

The fact of the matter is that most shootings, including mass shootings, don’t use a bunch of different firearms. Most shootings involve one gun. Just one. Most mass shootings use one or two firearms and, occassionally, a third even when the shooter had multiple firearms on their person when committing the crime.

Stopping people from getting multiple guns does nothing to prevent the people who want to commit violence from doing exactly what they are doing now.

And banning semiautomatic weapons doesn’t prevent criminals from stealing guns or buying them on the black market to still shoot people. Banning semiautomatic weapons simply prevents your average CCW permit holder from being ready to pull their firearm in self-defense when their life is on the line. If you have to load your flintlock rifle for self-defense, the criminal will have already stabbed or shot you.

So, we have a situation where people who understand gun safety think that their knowledge then applies generally to the whole gun violence issue in society, and it simply doesn’t. Why? Because the issue driving gun violence isn’t and has never been about a lack of gun safety (among legal owners) or the ability of people to legally buy firearms or the availability of semiautomatic weapons (fully automatic weapons are already very difficult to legally get hold of).

The issues driving gun violence is our culture’s lack of respect for human life and the fact that anyone who wants to kill people with guns can find a way to get their hands on those guns. This means that gun control just makes the innocent less safe because it keeps guns out of the hands of the people who only wish to protect themselves and others.

  1. What the he’ll is wrong with that father,doe he want his daughter to be assulted, raped ,beat up. She has taken measure to not be assaulted,or whatever could happen to her. He needs to get his head screwed on right ! Hope his daughter moves out. She should instruct her father on proper use and self defense of a hand gun, 40 cal. is a very good self defense weapon. Father needs to be re- trained,he sounds like a woosie!

  2. This just shows that no matter what “label” someone claims doesn’t mean it’s an accurate description – just think of “Antifa” which is probably the most Fascist oriented and violently destructive “protest group” in America, the label “Antifa” is 100% deceptive. All the real countryfolk I’ve ever met are avid supporters of the right to bear arms, and usually own firearms, are hunters that respect and preserve the land, teach their families safe handling, and often use firearms “on the job” to remove varmints as well as mercifully dispatching livestock or wild animals when warranted (examples: dangerously diseased livestock / protecting livestock / animal is wounded and sustained fatal damage but is still alive and in pain). These entertainers seem to be pretenders just trying to cash in on the country music market.

  3. I bet that every one of these “important” people have ARMED SECURITY around them at all times. It is people like this that really piss me off, they are such backstabbers to their public. I like country/western music but I will not listen or but their music or their shows.

  4. these people, so called “Stars. Think because they have a lot of money, can try and influence every one else, They are just another bunch of over rated idiots. They are basesically a fifiot. {Afidiot is someone too stupid to be just an idiot.

  5. If guns were banned all together
    Other things like baseball bat.hammer.knives.would be weapons of choice for crimenal intention then they would be assault weapons wake up people bate hands csn kill too

  6. My list of favorite country stars just changed. Now I have 19 new favorites! GO GUN CONTROL!!! You people are F—ed up! Get a clue!

    • Hey Peedrot,I hope you get mugged and soon after maybe a home invasion.Hope you don’t have a wife and kids.After all that I’ll bet you wish you had a gun…Dummass…

    • I consider “GUN CONTROL” using BOTH HANDS when pulling the trigger. If you had a brain you would be dangerous. Since you have joined these 19 idiots, there is now an authentic “20 MULE TEAM”. I don’t want to use the word “jackass” because a liberal like you could be offended.

    • You just can’t listen to these anti gun hypocrites.
      Former N.Y. Mayor, Michael Bloomberg is a billionaire who is one of the biggest anti gun supporters in the Country.
      He does however surround himself with armed bodyguards. You can’t be more hypocritical than that. And he just registered as a Democrat signaling that he might just run for President in the 2020 election.

  7. First of all, I either don’t like these singers, I haven’t heard of them, or I don’t consider their music as “real” country music. As for Taylor Swift, she has proven time and time again that she is not a country singer, and should never, even remotely, be considered as one. Real country artists performed in the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, and only about a handful from the 70s and 80s.

    • Taylor Swift dresses like a slut and that kind of dress encourages things to happen. but anyways, I agree with you. I love the singers like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, and the likes. With what they call country now-a-days, to me, there is no more country.

  8. The only country music stars on the list that I USED to listen to are McGraw and Hill. Guess they have been brain washed by liberal take over of our country’s education system and Hollywood crowd.

    • Agree 100%. They are most likely saying that to be able to appeal to a larger audience to gleen more money from their fans. I don’t doubt that they have become liberal celebrities!

  9. Tim McGraw is a raving democrat, friend of Obama as is his wife. I haven’t listened to him or her for years. I’m surprised at Reba, as I thought she had better sense, but I only have one setting on my radio and that’s Classic Country on the satellite channel. Those were the real country and still are.

    • I agree with you. I am upset about REBA and some others on the list. We know that she has some big body guards with auto / semi auto weapons to protect her. Plus high elect. fences around her property.
      Why can’t us little guys have the same protection / at least the same weapons?

  10. I am not surprised. It is not the guns fault. It is the one that is using it. I live in a rural area. I need a gun for protection. Law enforcement is over an hour away. It’s the evil people that are doing these shootings. I don’t buy the crap that all of them are crazy either. Why can’t people admit that there is evil people?

  11. Taylor swift is not country or conservative or a gun owner from the south! She is a left wing Yankee slut pop star California wanna be! Never liked wine and cry in my beer country anyway! More of a kill em all Metal man myself! Want my AR, come take that bitch!!!

  12. There should be a,few brave people like Willie Wayland and the rest that took back country back in the 70 when country did the same that it is doing now and take it back.

  13. If guns are to blame for the mass and drive bys shootings,” how come mine have never jumped up”and gone on a shooting spree? Ever ask yourself why most if not all Congress members, high profile Hollywood types and singers have armed protection?

  14. CAPS ARE OR PHYSICAL REASONS. AM NOT YELLING.

    THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LIKE GUNS FOR THE MOST HAVE GOOD HEARTS, JUST DUMB HEADS. THEY FEEL THAT IF THERE ARE NO GUNS THE WORLD WILL BE A SAFER PLACE. THEY HAVE FAITH IN THEIR GOVERNMENT BEING THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, NOT TO HAVE MASS KILLINGS. AND IF THEY DO HAVE MASS KILLINGS IT WILL BE THE OTHER SIDE THAT DIES.
    THEY DO NOT SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ALREADY HAVE GREAT GUN LAWS IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY DO NOT GET THAT EVEN IF EVERY GUN ON THE EARTH WAS DESTROYED THAT THE BAD GUYS WOULD STILL HAVE GUNS. THEY ARE RICH ENOUGH TO BUY A BAD GUY SCIENCIEST TO INVENT A GUN THAT NO ONE COULD DETECT AND THEN NO ONE WOULD HAVE A GUN BUT THE EVIL PEOPLE WITH EVIL PURPOSES AND WE WOULD ALL BE AT THEIR MERCY.
    THESE ANTI GUN PEOPLE DO NOT SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF SELF DEFENSE FOR EVERYONE. THEY LIVE IN IVORY TOWERS WHERE THEY DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY THE SAME AS THE COMMON PEOPLE. THE RICH CAN HIRE BODYGUARDS, BUILD THEIR OWN LITTLE WORLDS WITH THEIR OWN WALLS, AND HAVE THE LAW IN THE PALM OF THEIR HANDS. THEIR MONEY AND THEIR FAME PUTS THEM AT THE TOP OF THE ELITE LIST.
    I AM ONE AMERICAN. I DO NOT BUY MUSIC OF ANY KIND. I HAVE NOT GONE TO A MOVIE THEATER IN YEARS. I HAVEN’T WATCHED A BASEBALL GAME SINCE WILLIE MAYS RETIRED. I DO NOT LIKE THE MONEY INVOLVED IN SPORTS OR THE REST OF IT. PEOPLE HAVE GOD GIVEN TALENT THAT IS USED FOR MAKING MONEY AND THEY SERVE NO PURPOSE OTHER THAN THEIR OWN MATERIAL GAIN. THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT THEY WANT. THE RICH DO NOT HELP MAKE THE WORLD OR THEIR COUNTRY A BETTER PLACE. THEY TALK BIG LIKE THE NIKE GUY WHO HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE FLAG THAT PUTS ALL THE MONEY IN HIS POCKET. HE BITCHES WHILE PRAISING A SHOE COMPANY WITH CHILD LABOUR AND BITCHES ABOUT HOW BLOODY AMERICA IS RIGHT NOW WHILE ARAB COUNTRIES STILL KIDNAP PEOPLE TO SELL AS SLAVES AS I TYPE THIS COMMENT. ACTORS AND SINGERS ALIKE ARE SELF SERVING. THEY LIKE THE MONEY AND THEY LIKE THAT PEOPLE BOW TO THEM. WE ARE A DOLLAR SIGN. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS AND THEY ARE JUST PEOPLE WHO PUT THEMSELVES ABOVE EVEN THEIR OWN KIND NOT TO MENTION GOD. THEY BITCH ABOUT THE STATE OF AMERICA WITHOUT EVEN TRYING TO MAKE IT BETTER. THEY TEAR AMERICAN DOWN JUST FINE AND TRY TO MAKE OTHERS LIVE HOW THEY WANT US TO LIVE INSTEAD OF MINDING THEIR OWN BUSINESS. THEY ARE THE ENEMIES OF ALL THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT OUR NATION WHILE GRABBING ALL THE MONEY AND GLORY LIKE THEY ALONE DESERVE IT. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MANY OF THE WORSE OF AMERICA’S CRIMES WITH THEIR SONGS AND THEIR MOVIES. ASSAINS WHO KILL PRESIDENTS. VIOLENCE IN THE STREETS. HATE THAT IS SPREAD ACROSS THE LAND COMES FROM THE THINGS THYAT THEY DO AND DO NOT DO. RAP MUSIC IS A PRIME EXAMPLE. ACTORS WHOSE ART IS PAINTED WITH BLOOD. COMEDIANS WHO CREATE GAMES AND PLAYS THAT KILL PRESIDENTS. THEY ARE THE NASTIEST OF PEOPLE AND ACT LIKE THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO SPOUT THEIR SHIT WHILE TELLING US TO SHUT UP CALLING US THE BIGOTS ETC. WHEN IT IS THEIR HATE BEING SPEWED. TV SHOWS THAT ARE ALL HATE IN EVERY JOKE THEY MAKE. NEWS CHANNELS THAT PRAISE THE WEAPONS OF THE NEW BROWN SHIRTS ANTIFA. LITERALLY, A NEWSCASTER HOLDING ANTIFA’S WEAPONS AND TELLING THE OWNER HOW GREAT THEY THINK THEY ARE WHILE SHOUTING FOR GUN CONTROL? AMERICA WE ARE UNDER ATTACK BY HOLLYWOOD.

  15. When they ban guns, they will start trying to ban combat sports and self defense classes. Unfortunately it takes violent people to protect themselves from lawless violent people. Don’t mess with my rights as an American citizen. I mess back.

  16. Terrorists that can’t get guns use cars to run over a group of people. I suppose we should ban automobiles. Evil people find whatever they can to kill people. A gun is as good or bad as the person using it. Criminals will always have guns. These morons who have private security don’t have to worry about someone breaking into their homes. The sad thing is they have forgotten where they have come from. They sing their songs about hard times and live like kings. Just look at the countries who have outlawed firearms and see if it has stopped crimes in those countries. They better concern themselves rather with someone who can kill hundreds or thousands with explosives or chemical weapons. If it is true there are terrorists cells in this country, leave the law abiding citizens alone. They may be the only ones to save your sorry selves!

  17. Well I haven’t listen to country music for about the last 25 years or so ! Because the country music that I listen to was good with Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson George Jones you know the good singers. This new country music sounds like a bunch of damn chants!!!!! Even some of the younger ones like Shania twain, I cannot stand her voice. I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eating crackers, I just don’t like your music. Anyway , They’ll get my guns for me one main prime from my cold dead hands.
