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?
Newly released info shows evidence that Paddock was a Cliven Bundy-type anti-government nut. He was definitely right wing in his ideology. In addition, I never use the “C-word” when describing right wingers. That would be dishonoring the true definition of the term “conservative” as well as giving serious credential to a group of crazies that have demonstrated that they don’t deserved to be called such a word.

"Can be", but how many actually ARE???
Oh I see, now vindictive "liberals" have absolute control over ALL of the entertainment industry, music. film, all of it.
We DO have a Conspiracy Theory forum you know.

Fine. Did you or did you not imply that vindictive liberals control the entertainment industry?
If not please explain what it is you were trying to say/imply.
"According to them" is what I said. Being vindictive is not a quality only liberals or conservatives have. It is a negative quality any a$$hole in power has and worse... Knows they have it and uses it by any means necessary.

Fine. So clearly define who you mean by "them."
I did not say being vindictive was a quality exclusive to just one political/socual ideaology.
Nor does one need to have power in order to be an asshole.

In liberal Hollywood, a conservative minority faces backlash in the age of Trump

For the vast majority of conservatives who work in entertainment, going to set or the office each day has become a game of avoidance and secrecy. The political closet is now a necessity for many in an industry that is among the most liberal in the country.

I've never cared for Country music, but I'm libertarian, so I guess it won't count towards the statistics. I always perceived Country music as a regional thing, mainly the south.

Hollywood is predominantly liberal.

But the more classical country music industry is very conservative. Think the archetypal NASCAR fan.

Remember what happened to the Dixie Chicks when they criticized Bush Jr.?
Yeah i remember that. I still think it was a cheap cowardly publicity stunt for popularity for overseas audiences to eat up. However, i didn't throw away their cd's. In fact i still got them. Good music is good music, no matter the stupid stunts people pull.

Ok now. Here is another link:
