    Yahoo News: Politically Active Carrie Underwood Won't Stick to Singing

    Politically Active Carrie Underwood Won’t ‘Stick to Singing’

    By Wendy Geller







    By Wendy Geller | Our Country – 2 hours 22 minutes ago







    Carrie Underwood (Photo: Ethan Miller)Nobody is going to tell Carrie Underwood to "shut up and sing." The superstar and American Idol is firing back at her state representative for a remark he made in response to her comments on a controversial bill sitting on the governor's desk this month.
    Underwood, a longtime animal activist, spoke out with disapproval regarding the "Ag Gag bill" last week--a measure that would require anyone recording images of animal abuse to submit unedited footage or photos to law enforcement within 48 hours.
    Leading animal-rights groups adamantly oppose this bill, saying the short deadline will compromise investigations into farming cruelty cases; as well as have potentially dangerous impact on labor issues, food safety, and First Amendment rights.
    Underwood agrees: "Shame on TN lawmakers for passing the Ag Gag bill. If Gov. Bill Haslam signs this, he needs to expect me at his front door. Who's with me?" the singer tweeted to her nearly 1.5 million followers last Thursday.
    In response, State Representative Andy Holt, who supports the bill, told local news: "I would say that Carrie Underwood will stick to singing, I'll stick to lawmaking."
    To this, Underwood tweeted incredulously, "I should stick to singing? Wow...sorry, I'm just a tax paying citizen concerned for the safety of my family."
    The "Ag Gag" bill has already passed the state House and Senate and is currently in Haslam's hands. The bill most recently was withdrawn from consideration in the nation's top agricultural state, California, due to serious opposition.

    As proud as I am of Carrie, I don't see her statement as "politically motivated" at all. She's standing for animals and fighting against a bill. This isn't a "Democrats vs Republican" issue, it's a human issue.

    I am STILL waiting for the gutless Andy Holt to defend his comments.

    Andy Holt better come out and defend his comments because he is just getting ripped by pretty much everyone in the Yahoo article, if he doesn't he is even more gutless than he has already shown himself to be

    I am very proud of her!!! She is strong and sticks to what she believes in.. I wonder if he would have said that if she was a male country singer.. very doubtful.. what a douche..

    I can't believe he still hasn't said anything. I don't get why he doesn't just come out and say, that was a stupid comment . . . he really is getting reamed on this site. It is just reinforcing our opinion of politicians.

    He is getting reamed in the comments section of the Yahoo article, pretty clear to me that he can dish it out but he can't take it when he gets called out like he has been over and over and over again.
