“Kelsea Ballerini faces backlash from 400 radio stations due to her involvement in a drag queen performance at the CMT Awards.”

The controversy surrounding Kelsea Ballerini’s performance at the CMT Music Awards continued to escalate as more radio stations joined in banning her music. The country singer’s fans were shocked and saddened by the swift backlash against her, with many feeling she was unfairly punished for speaking out on gun control and LGBTQ+ rights.

At the CMT Music Awards, Kelsea Ballerini took the stage and made two mistakes that ended her career. She began by paying tribute to the victims of school shootings while discussing gun control, a topic she has no business discussing as an artist. She also danced with drag queens.
There were young people in the audience.

More than 400 radio stations, or roughly half of the 1,200 national stations nationwide, blacklisted her entire discography in less than a day.
According to WCNT’s Catfish Bill Montminy in Great Trees, New Hampshire, his station dropped her while she was still playing, and that set off a chain reaction with other stations calling to notify them as well.

Catfish Bill stated, “He’s anti-freedom; he wants drag queens to take away people’s firearms, and that’s not okay.”
Restrictions spread like wildfire once word reached the Mason-Dixon line. Prior to the news that “Kick Kelsea to the Kurb” contained a hidden message from white nationalists, the phrase was trending on Twitter.

Ted Nugent, speaking, noted that if they were ready to induct him into the Hall of Fame, he would be happy to adapt a few of his songs to country music and perform at the presentation next year. I’m pretty good at Nerf Disc Golf, he added, “pretty much any hall of fame will do at this point.”
Ms. Ballerini declined to comment.

How long her music ban will last and whether she can recover from this setback remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: the controversy surrounding her performance has brought to light some important questions about the role of art. and politics in modern society.

    Go Brandon! The hell with this b.s. We all have a choice , you cannot force your will on people that is against this! I bear no malice but I have my own opinion! No one can shame me in to believing anything else!

  2. If you are blessed with talent, just use it and leave politics out of it. Your personal opinion is just that, personal and has no bearing on your performance.

  3. I do remember the Dixie Chicks and to think what the industry lost because of ignorance on the peoples part. They are still doing just fine and making money & I might add for doing what was right. The f’in political ignorance of you people making everything what it’s not, just justifies all the hillbilly inbred humor for the people in the south and more that isn’t humor anymore but a direct reflection of just how inbred backwards you all are. Shame on every single radio station and platform that dropped this talented young woman. She will rise bigger bolder and brighter you Christian loser idiots.
