20. I only see two from the Democrat list who have actual
Nashville commercial country careers.

The rest are indies or used to have major label deals.

The talent comparison between the lists is w-a-y lopsided in favor of the Democrats, but they've mostly been driven out of major-label country music.

The industry for over a decade has been extremely hostile to anyone not on board with the jingoistic propaganda agenda of the establishment country music industry. The powerful in Nashville claim they have no agenda, that all decisions are made based on commercial success, but that is a flat-out lie. They neutered the music of the white working class and turned it into a propaganda tool of their own.
