Is The Country Music Community Ready for a Gay Couple in a Music Video? [Watch]
Brothers Osbourne have released the video for their cool new song, "Stay a Little Longer," and it features couples of all makes and models in that weird "in-between" stage of their relationship. The weird, guessing game stage.
The coolest part? Aside from all the couples living in storage containers.... is that they are featuring a gay couple. And, as far as I can remember, this is the first gay couple to be featured in a mainstream country video.
Some people in the country music community are concerned that the more conservative listeners won't like this video, but from what I've read, and heard, most people are super supportive of the Brothers Osbourne and their video.
Given the controversy behind Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" and the back and forth that the character "Will Lexington" is facing on the ABC hit show Nashville as a country singer who is coming out of the closet in front of the world, I think the topic of homosexuality in country music is about to take center stage. Where will you fall on the issue?
What do you think about this video?
