These 19 Country Artists All Support Gun Law Reform
The country music community has tended to lean to the more conservative side of American politics, and its artists often adhere to the "shut up and sing" mentality. However, there are a few acts who have stepped away from that crowd and shared their ideas on gun laws.
Country music artists and fans experienced firsthand the violence and heartbreak that someone with a gun can unleash at 2017's Route 91 Harvest Festival. Fifty-eight fans of the genre were killed and hundreds more were injured when a gunman opened fire on the festival grounds during the final night of that event. But, Route 91 -- which remains the deadliest non-war mass shooting in the United States -- and the other, numerous gun-related tragedies of recent years have spurred some country stars to speak out in support of gun law reform.
Maren Morris, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church and others have joined Rosanne Cash and a few other early proponents of reforming the U.S.'s gun laws. Cash is one of the artists who have been vocal about the need for change for years.
