Actress Reese Witherspoon is on a mission to change country music. She is launching a new project with country music star Kacey Musgraves aimed at making the country music industry “more inclusive and representative.”
According to Breitbart, the show will primarily feature contestants of different ethnicities and at least one non-binary. Witherspoon had a busy day on Friday when she announced this new project. On the same day, she announced that she would be divorcing her husband of eleven years. MSN shared the following Tweet that Witherspoon made about the upcoming Apple+ show:
“My Kind of Country was born out of conversations with Kacey Musgraces about how country music needs to be more inclusive & representative.”
The show, which has become a hot topic among country fans, is described by Apple+ as the following:
‘“My Kind of Country” is a fresh take on a competition series, breaking down barriers in country music by providing an extraordinary opportunity to diverse and innovative artists from around the world. Scouts Allen, Guyton and Peck each hand-pick a roster of exceptional up-and-coming artists and invite them to the home of country music in Nashville, Tennessee, to showcase their unique sound. The competition winner will receive a life-changing prize from Apple Music, receiving unprecedented support and exposure on the platform.’
For Musgrave, this project was one that she felt strongly about. She says that country music often tends to “underestimate” its listeners and avoid talking about the topics that she finds necessary. Musgraves said:
“Country music isn’t just about songs about trucks… I think taking creative risk on people who has something different to say, sound different or look different that is how we are going to find the icons of our next generation.”
This latest woke initiative comes hot on the heels of Witherspoon’s recent divorce. Witherspoon, discussing that divorce on social media, said:
“We have some personal news to share… It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness and mutual respect for everything we have created together.”
“Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter,” she added. “These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”
The divorcing couple shares one child together, 10-year-old Tennessee. He is Withersoon’s youngest of three children; Ava, 23, and Deacon, 19, are shared with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. Witherspoon and Phillippe got divorced in 2006.
This latest attempt to wokify country music comes hot on the heels of the exact opposite actually happening, as we just saw Morgan Wallen’s booming success in his most recent album release. While most country fans seem to love his music, given that he has the top album in the genre as of right now, other fans cannot get past the incident from a few years ago where Wallen drunkenly uttered the n-word while with his friends.
