Country music singer Blake Shelton continued to make waves Tuesday when he announced that he would return his 2010 CMA Vocalist of the Year award if the Country Music Association and Nashville in general continued to ignore musical group Insane Clown Posse.
"The fact that Insane Clown Posse is at the forefront of country music and can't get the time of day from Nashville and the Country Music Association is a tragedy of the highest order. Can you believe this talented band has never been asked to play the Grand Ole Opry? Not once? Hell, even such country music outsiders as Ray Price have been asked to play the Opry!" Shelton ranted.
Insane Clown Posse, known for such songs as Bitches, Over A Bitch, My Kind of Bitch, Bitch I Lied, Birthday Bitches, Nuttin' But A Bitch Thang, and Santa's A Fat Bitch, continued their silence on the issue.
"I buy these records. Grandpa should buy these records. Young kids should buy these records. This is the future of country music. Hell, I'm so angry right now, I'm going to go out and buy these records all over again. Personally, I can't get enough of such Insane Clown Posse classics as Bugz on my Nutz. That right there is a country gem."
The Country Music Association has yet to issue a response to Shelton's pleas.
"If these old farts at the CMA's can't see that Insane Clown Posse is the future of country music, well then, I'm not the future of country music," Shelton concluded.
