CMA (Country Music) Awards Just Made Fun Of Obamacare In Their Opening Number.....

this is really in poor taste and uncalled for. They ought to issue an apology to the President. It wasn't funny at all.

40. I've never watched the CMAs. Do they even recognize alt-country folks like Steve Earle?

There are a lot of folks I consider on that musical wavelength, that I like alot.. Jay Farrar/Son Volt, James McMurtry...

But of course music all munges together... walk far enough in one direction in Country, you get to Rockabilly or even punk. Walk another direction and you smack into the Grateful Dead.

However, I always thought the CMAs were pretty limited in scope. To mostly the parts of Country that don't particularly appeal to me.

65. Agreed. I am finding it hard to get worked up about this.

As far as it being in poor taste, or apologies being owed, get a grip. It was actually pretty mild teasing; making fun of a government program. As far as I could see, they didn't get personal toward President Obama, or racist or really offensive, so I won't let this upset me. I do not and will not own any Brad Paisley or Carrie Underwood music. But neither do I own any Dixie Chicks stuff. But, that is simply because I am not a fan of what passes as "country" music these days. It pretty much degenerated into "pop lite" decades ago.
I am sure that many of my friends here on DU who are angry about this spoof were happy when one of the Dixie Chicks insulted President Bush. I suppose it depends on whose ox is being gored.
Making fun of politicians and their work is one of the rights we enjoy as Americans. Also, life is too short to spend it pissed off.

But he's regressed, with that crappy "Accidental Racist" song with LL Cool J and now this. In 2009 Paisley recorded the song "Welcome to the Future" as a tribute to the Obama 2008 campaign.

44. They Are Comics And Political Humorists.....

they do political humor all the time and are pretty much equal opportunity cut-ups. You should also include Letterman and Ferguson in this group and SNL. Political humor has been part of their job. I kind of always expect this kind of humor from this group.

I just did not expect - when I sat down to watch the Country Music Awards show that the hosts of the program - both country singers themselves and not comics - would target the President and ACA (aka Obamacare) on a show broadcasting (I'm sure) to a wide audience of Americans - about honoring their own in country music. It was out of place and disrespectful. It was a political statement of sorts that appeared to me to be meant to send a negative message (albeit subliminal). I did not think it was funny. It was biting and hurtful.

I read comments above in this thread about the Dixie Chicks comments about the war and G.W.Bush. I learned later from Wikipedia that those comments weren't made on the CMA awards show - but at a concert in London.

Here's the passage from Wikipedia that I read:

During a London concert ten days before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, lead vocalist Maines said, "we don't want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States [George W. Bush] is from Texas".[1] The positive reaction to this statement from the British audience contrasted with the boycotts that ensued in the U.S., where the band was assaulted by talk-show conservatives,[2] while their albums were discarded in public protest.

My beef is that this was so-called misplace humor not fitting for a country music awards show.

58. Oh please.

Do you watch other awards shows? They make fun of everything. Are you going to be outraged at them too??

And I don't need lectures from you about the Dixie Chicks. I watched country music videos when they were first starting. They caught my eye with their first song and I kept up with them ever since. I have supported them through the years.

I watched the skit. It was pretty benign as far as making fun goes. My beef was that it wasn't a very good skit. Neither Brad nor Carrie carried it off well and they are pros on stage. I don't think they were enamored of it but they gave it a go. It looked like somebody's half-assed idea that was thrown together and thrown in at the last minute.

As far as what is fitting for a country music awards show, I didn't know there were rules. They have had a wide variety of presentations on them. I don't like all of them, but that goes for any awards show.

59. No it's not.

If you listen to certain stations with a religious bent, you will hear Jesus songs. They are few and far between in new country.
The only song I have heard that was very religious that was played on country stations was 'Change' by Rascal Flatts. I'm sure there are others, but cheatin' songs and tornado songs have them outnumbered. There will be mentions of God or Jesus in songs, but that's in passing.

New country is pop music with a twang. Most of it is by 'cute country' boys many of whom will disappear after one hit. A lot of what I hear is dreck, but there are good songs and artists among the crap.

If you think it's all hard-right Jesus music then you need to listen to the Pistol Annies.

63. Oh please.

They were poking fun at the website, not Obama himself. I saw some of the outraged tweets. Some people need to grow a thicker skin.

68. Apology? Really? It's a joke.

 

It might not have been funny but jokes are made about politicians and policies all the time.

73. I've seen or heard clips of this segment at least 6 times already this morning, in fact I woke up

74. Didn't Paisely endorse Obama during the campaign? I really think Paisley should shut up and play.


Note that I didn't say "sing". His songwriting is terrible. He's a good guitar player, thats about it.
