Country Music At Large

Music Industry Calls For 'Black Out Tuesday'

In a message of solidarity in response to the death of George Floyd, a number of music industry leaders have called for a "Black Out Tuesday" on June 2.

Record labels such as Atlantic Records, Capitol Music Group, Columbia Records, Def Jam, Universal Music Group, Sony Music, Warner Records, and Interscope Geffen A&M, among many others, have all pledged to cease business activity on Tuesday.

"Due to recent events please join us as we take an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change," says a statement widely circulated on social media under the hashtag #TheShowMustBePaused.

"As gatekeepers of the culture, it's our responsibility to not only come together to celebrate the wins, but also hold each other up during a loss," the statement continues. "Join us on Tuesday JUNE 2 as a day to disconnect from work and reconnect with our community."

A number of the labels noted that "Black Out Tuesday" will not be a "day off" but rather a day to reflect and figure out ways to move forward in solidarity.

The move by the music industry comes following the May 25 death of Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. Floyd's death has sparked mass protests across the country.

Carrie Underwood Dances To Megan Thee Stallion's 'Savage'

Country singer Carrie Underwood recently accepted the TikTok "Savage" challenge and created a short clip in which she is seen grooving along to the Megan Thee Stallion song of the same name.

The "American Idol" winner is new to the platform, having joined the fray mere weeks ago, when she filmed her husband Mike Fisher's attempt at rescuing a bird that had gotten trapped inside their home.

In her latest TikTok, she was joined by the makeup and hair artist, Melissa Schleicher, and while Underwood absolutely killed the now-infamous "Savage" dance routine, a facemask-clad Schleicher was slower at picking up the movements.

The singer was also quick to own the fact that the majority of the user demographic of the app consists of teenagers, writing, "We know we are not, in fact, savage" in bold letters across the video. It has since garnered more than 2 million views on the app.

Dan + Shay Break Social Media Silence To Comment On George Floyd's Death

Country duo Dan + Shay recently broke their 2-month-long social media hiatus to express their condolences and rage about the tragic death of George Floyd, who was brutally killed by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who has since been fired and charged with manslaughter and third-degree murder.

"It is truly devastating to think that someone could carry so much hate. We, as humans, MUST come together to make a change. Racism and discrimination because of someone's skin color is simply just WRONG," the singers wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram, a platform on which the duo has gathered more than 1 million followers.

"This starts at home. We must educate our children, and instill values of love and equality," they continued. "We are all born innocent, and racism is something that is learned. Let's work together, NOW, to make a change. Please use your voice."

In the same post, the singers also shared that while they have been absent from social media, they have silently been working on what they consider to be their best work yet, and are currently putting the finishing touches on it.
