Blake Shelton to be removed from the Grand Ole Opry?

Some groups think so! The Maggie Penn’s Traditional Music Foundation and the Bob Everhart’s National Traditional Country Music Association, are petitioning to have Blake Shelton removed from the Grand Ole Opry as a result of his comments during an interview with GAC….’If I am “Male Vocalist of the Year” that must mean that I’m one of those people now that gets to decide if it moves forward and if it moves on. Country music has to evolve in order to survive. Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa’s music. And I don’t care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, “My God, that ain’t country!” Well that’s because you don’t buy records anymore, jacka##. The kids do, and they don’t want to buy the music you were buying.’

There is also a march planned for April 17/2013 in Nashville.

What are your thoughts on the matter, should Blake get to keep his place in the home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry, or are his comments grounds to be removed?

  1. Kick his ass out. I liked Blake the key word is liked. I will not be buying anymore of his records, with attitude like that he has NO place in Country Music. Country is what made Blake what he is.

  2. Blake is a really poorly spoken person since there is a wave of ‘old country’ on the comeback and many of the younger generation are loving these tunes. Perhaps he is feeling threatened by this. What he said was a slap to many and I think he should get down off his royal stage and shovel his sh.. elsewhere.

  3. let him do what he wants. it just ain;t country. for that matter a lot of the new stuff isn;t even music.
