MARTINA KEEPS MUM ON POLITICS

If you expect Martina McBride to join the growing number of artists who are sharing their political views onstage, you'll be disappointed. Martina told The Tennessean, "I don't feel any need to talk about politics. Maybe it's a Midwestern thing, but I was raised where your political party is kind of private. It's nobody's business." Martina added, "I do think that artists have as much right to talk about politics as anyone else. I separate people's music from their political views. This is America, and people should be able to say what they want, and people should listen to it with some tolerance. If you don't like what somebody says onstage, then fine: say, 'I don't agree with that. That was a bad move.' Then go home, have dinner with your family and get on with your life."
