One thought on “A New Generation Pushes Nashville to Address Racism in its Ranks

  1. While addressing racism, they ought to also address homophobia. It may not be as obvious as racism, but gay country singers (e.g., K.D.Lang, whose country songs are equal to, or better than, her other songs) always seem to be ostracized in such a way that they don’t even make in into the ‘club’ or don’t even bother trying, I have to admit that Billy Ray Cyrus was unafraid to sing with Lil Nas X, but those admittances seem few and far between.
