2016 Windy City LakeShake Country Music Festival Big Machine Label Group has taken criticism for releasing singer Aaron Lewis’ recent number-one country song bashing liberals, but the company’s CEO, Scott Borchetta, says he is standing by his artist.
Left-wing music blogger Bob Lefsetz recently wrote that Lewis’ song is “heinous” and slammed Big Machine for releasing the hit “Am I the Only One.” But Borchetta wrote an open letter defending his label’s actions in reply to the criticism launched by liberals such as Lefsetz. Responding to Lefsetz, Borchetta opened his letter saying, “Firstly, I believe in the First Amendment. My job has never been to tell my artists what to sing and write about.”
“Aaron Lewis and I have political disagreements. But there are also things we agree on. I think that’s the foundation for the idea of our country,” Borchetta continued. “It doesn’t work if we’re so divided that we […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
