Of course, analysis of cultural subtext in country music is one thing; radio and tv play is quite another matter and of principle, tantamount importance to today's entertainer. This story, about how Charlie Daniels says he didn't send his publicist out to fight on his behalf, speaks for itself.
It appears Daniels removed himself from the real fray. Yet, somehow, such music artists would have a little more credibility if they weren't just worried about getting played on The Radio Station and selling records. Any idea how many of them have showed up at the recruiting station to actually enlist? Do more than bend a string on a USO tour (They used to send the girls out to do that, you know).
