Welcome to the Liberal Country Music Fan blog. Life sometimes gets a bit Blue for us country music fans on the Left. With any luck, this blog will provide a home and a voice to us Roosevelt-lovin' Rednecks. It'll be our "Big Blue Note".

Senator McGraw? (D-TN or R-TN?)

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Tim McGraw (iTunes) said he might like to get into politics once his kids are all grown up. The NYDN writes that he listed senator or governor of Tennessee as possibilities.

Would he run as a Dem or Republican? My hopes are up that he is a Democrat deep inside his glossy, magazine-ready exterior. He did that duet with Nelly, and he has been supportive of my man, Cowboy Troy (iTunes). In other words, he is doing his part to solve the diversity problem in country music. Some more evidence:

* He and his wife, Faith Hill (iTunes), participated in Live 8
* Some of the songs on his latest album, Live Like You Were Dying, have decidedly humanist overtones, especially “Drugs or Jesus

But then again, there’s that whole “Indian Outlaw” thing...
