Country Singers Who Lean to the Left [View all]

While country is traditionally thought of as a conservative genre of music, there are a surprising amount of liberals in country music. Liberal country singers vary greatly on the political spectrum in terms of how far left they lean. Some famous country singers who are Democrats donate money to politicians. Other iconic country musicians go as far as to support liberal causes within their own lyrics. In fact, a few more democratic country singers have even alienated fans because of their political commentary.


It is of my opinion that Dolly Parton should have been on this list.
