Is country music "conservative" music?

I'm asking because two DTT posters have "opined" that the LV shooting was directed at people who like country music, you know, conservatives, rather than liberals who hate country music and who weren't there.

Or looking at it from a different angle, why do liberals hate country music?

Its not conservative music. People who like this music are certainly majority conservative. I'm a conservative and I am not a country fan, for example.

Really a variety of stuff. 90s alternative rock, The Toadies, Cake, Gin Blossoms, jamiroquai for example. Lately I am waxing nostalgic for 50s popular music.

The majority of country music fans are conservative. Polling shows that to be so.
Thanks from discollector

Yes but the question was "is it conservative music". My point being that conservatives do not all listen to country music. Conservative taste vary just as they do with liberals.

It is not DDT, but people who are suffering so much from TDS that they have lost all reason and empathy and just want to hate those that do not share their disgust for Trump or the Republicans. You see that hatred here everyday. If Trump found a cure for cancer, you'll have a handful of idiots here claiming some some sort of evilness behind it.

Quote:
CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she was “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the mass shooting that unfolded in Las Vegas late Sunday night.

Monday night she issued a statement of apology.

Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network's now-former vice president and senior counsel, said, “Earlier today I posted an indefensible post in a Facebook discussion thread concerning the tragic Las Vegas shooting, a statement I sincerely regret. I am deeply sorry for diminishing the significance of every life affected by Stephen Paddock’s terrorism last night and for the pain my words have inflicted on the loved ones of the victims. My shameful comments do not reflect the beliefs of my former employer, colleagues, family, and friends. Nor do they reflect my actual beliefs — this senseless violence warrants the deepest empathy. I understand and accept all consequences that my words have incurred.”

A CBS spokeswoman told Fox News that Geftman-Gold, “who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”

Geftman-Gold took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 59 people and sending more than 510 others to hospitals.

“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.

Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”

Quote:
Shortly after Trump delivered prepared remarks to provide solace to victims of the deadliest mass shooting in United States’ history, CNN asked Zeleny, a senior White House correspondent, to analyze the speech.

Zeleny said he found the speech to be “pitch perfect” but then asked people to “keep in mind” that many country music fans are Trump supporters.

“Something else, I think, to keep in mind–a lot of these country music supporters are likely Trump supporters,” Zeleny said. “This is something, of course, hitting the tapestry of all Americans and there are going to be victims from across the country here.”

That is just two of many high-profiled people that commented on this and turned a tragedy into a political circus.

If you want to spend some time, there are many people on social media gloating over this tragedy among what they think are mostly Republicans and Trump supporters.

The question was, to my PoV, put incorrectly.

No, no, no, no, no, you're talking about conservatives and Obama.
In fact, you stole that line.
