    Carrie Underwood Denounces Tennessee “Ag Gag” Bill, Fights Back Against Bill Co-Sponsor

    Carrie has a history of advocacy for the proper treatment of animals, and that history has riled certain fringe groups looking for publicity. In 2009, her cover of Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” was the exit song for Season 8 of American Idol and a portion of proceeds from its sales went to specific Humane Society Of The United States programs “that help companion animals, including spaying and neutering services and the rescue and shelter of animal victims of puppy mills and disasters.” At the time, a hunters group called the US Sportsmen’s Alliance tried to turn that into an attack by Carrie on hunting. That donation came up again in February 2011 when rodeo interests (including PBR bullrider Austin Meier) tried to start a boycott of Carrie’s music based on the false claim that Carrie’s donation was meant to end rodeos.


    Back in 2006, Carrie’s withdrawal from the Frontier Days rodeo event prompted a barrage of publicity and a lawsuit by the event promoter against a group it claimed had influenced Carrie to pull out of a booking there. Carrie has never commented on her withdrawal or her position on rodeos in general. But she has not performed at a single rodeo since Idol despite events like the Houston Rodeo being among country music’s highest drawing live events (the concerts often have reported attendance of 75-80k nightly). Carrie has also commented that her vegetarianism sometimes sparks negative reactions in certain areas of the US. Less controversially, Carrie partnered with the Pedigree Adoption Drive in 2010 to raise awareness of the millions of dogs who wind up in shelters every year.


    For somebody who generally stays out of political debates, Carrie sure is fired up about this issue! Do you think her tweets could make a difference?

    Really proud of Carrie for standing up for this, especially knowing the backlash could be big.


    I think it says a lot that Carrie spoke out about this, knowing that she usually stays quiet about anything that could be slightly controversial. In any case, I'm glad she's speaking up about this, because it shows how important it is to her. I think she's still stereotyped as that stiff blonde from Idol with no personality, so I'm glad she's showing she's more than that.

    I also loved that she said she's "just a tax paying citizen looking out for the safety of (her) family." She just views herself as a normal person with the same rights as everybody.

    Agree. I love that she said that. And she has Wynonna on her side now, thankfully.
