Country music star Trace Adkins is a Confederate.
It remains to be seen whether or not men will ever again walk this Earth who possess the kind of valor and gallantry that animated those who were citizens of the Confederate States of America. In fighting for our people on the radio airwaves, my very best efforts are like filthy rags when compared to the kind of sacrifice made by even the most obscure Confederate soldier. In attempting to protect our families from Federal tyranny they risked all in service to a Cause far greater than themselves. The South truly represented everything that was glorious about the American experiment that our Founding Fathers envisioned.
Trace Adkins thinks so too:
Country music superstar Trace Adkins stopped by the formal commencement of Tennessee’s sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War Friday where he did a little dreaming out loud of a day when the U.S. federal government shows more respect for state sovereignty.
Adkins, whose great-great-grandfather fought in the war, said he believes the period of remembrance underway to honor the 150-year anniversary of America’s bloodiest conflict is a unique opportunity to reconnect people to their heritage and teach children about history and the sacrifices their ancestors made for their most cherished beliefs.
Adkins also revealed — for the first time in public, he said — that as a statement of allegiance to states’ rights and tribute to the men of the Confederacy who fought to defend the concept, he refuses to cut his hair.
Now that we can save some money by not shopping at Sears, how about using a little of that extra cash to go out and buy a Trace Adkins CD?
