Diamond Rio

I received an interesting email today. Just one of the many 'here pass this on' sort of emails that I tend to get from time to time. Religion is one of those things that I have always more or less steered clear of when it comes to blogging or talking about it. It is safe to say, I am far from a Bible thumper(not that there is anything wrong with that). However, I do want to share this for what it is worth.

According to the email Diamond Rio came out with this song in 2005. For reasons of political correctness radio stations refused to play it. I have no idea how true this is but know I had never heard it until just now. While I believe in political correctness to a degree I also believe there is a point where it often goes wayyyyy too far. Right or wrong to me, this is one of those cases so I am posting it here for what little it is worth.

Dear Diamond Rio:

Great song. I can't do anything about fixing the problem of having your song shared with the 4 million people it should have been shared with. However, I thought you would like to know that it has now been passed on to my mighty readership of 4. Only 3,999,996 more to go!

Sincerely yours,

BD

3,999,987. cheeks and j listened with me. i don't get why it didn't get airplay. country music especially is full of religious views. alan jackson ends every album with a gospel song, some of randy travis's best known works are religious. why the hypocricy where this song is concerned? i'll send it on to family and friends.
