Mike Huckabee Resigns From Country Music Board After Criticism Of His Anti-LGBTQ Views

Mike Huckabee Resigns From Country Music Board After Criticism Of His Anti-LGBTQ Views“If the industry doesn’t want people of faith or who hold conservative and traditional political views to buy tickets and music, they should be forthcoming and say it,” Huckabee wrote in his resignation letter, which came just one day after he was announced as the CMA Foundation’s newest member. “Until recently, the arts was the one place America could set aside political, geographical, racial, religious, and economic barriers and come together …  At the end of the day, I’m not worth the fight, but the kids are.” The letter was published in Nashville’s The Tennessean. Although CMA Foundation Chairman Joe Galante had touted Huckabee’s “policy experience with education reform” when announcing the former Arkansas governor’s appointment to the board Wednesday, the news immediately set off a firestorm of criticism.
