"You have to be made of iron to not look at Las Vegas and think something has got to change," Secor said. "These artists that are selling out arenas... many of whom are the very folks who have been so reluctant to talk about gun control. They can be the voice of reason that can help facilitate the conversation."

Not here to argue! I promise!

But out of curiosity, did you think Ketch wouldn't have this view? I mean, all Old Crow songs that are political typically side with left wing/liberal view points.

And I try to stay open minded about musicians and their political views. Ted Nugent and I are on totally different ends of the spectrum, but "Stranglehold" is still my favorite classic rock song. The Nuge!!

no arguments old mose. I do respect everyone's own opinions but I really wish musicians would keep politics from music. . I love music. I don't love all the political bickering and bitching.. I love music as it is an escape from all that. thanks for your input and yes love me some nuge to!
