Thread Name: Steve Earle takin' heat for new song
Subject: RE: BS: Steve Earle takin' heat for new song
McG, I don't think the question is a free speech under law question. It's more of a social stigma question, where Earle is likely to encounter anger and possibly boycott from the public, and specifically from the Country-Western fan base and recording establishment. Since Steve's fan base is more of a cross-over group from rock and folk, I don't think he really loses any sleep over it.
