Where is country music headed? 

If you read this story about Mike Huckabee’s 24-hour term of service on the board of the Country Music Association (CMA) Foundation, you may be asking where country music is headed, who is hijacking the industry and who will be welcome in its fold.

In an email this week, Huckabee wrote, "I hate to bring up last week's controversy again, about me resigning from the CMA Foundation after a music executive who is intolerant of Christians and conservatives accused me of intolerance. But this is very important and needs to be said.

"I thanked everyone who voiced displeasure with the CMA, but I asked my fans please not to take out their anger on the CMA, which does excellent work to help bring music to school kids. Now, it's just come to my attention that Jason Owens, a young country singer from Kentucky, has been the innocent recipient of a lot of online attacks, just because his name is similar to the executive who targeted me.

"This young man says he’s just a musician: he keeps politics out of his shows and only wants to entertain people. I’m very sorry that some people mistakenly targeted him. I don’t want anyone doing that, even to the person who really did protest me! This story carries two important lessons: Get your facts right and don't believe everything you see on the Internet. And bullying people is always the wrong thing to do.

"I think a really great thing to do would be to pay to download some of this young man’s music!"

Thank you, Governor Huckabee for your gracious spirit. I don’t know who Jason Owens is, but I will purchase and download at least one of his songs.

This week’s print edition of the Biblical Recorder features Billy Graham’s legacy. The front cover is a bold image of the famed evangelist.
