Country community responds to Boston Marathon bombings

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 – The country music community reacted with sympathy for Boston in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing.

"Sending all of my love to Boston after a day of sadness and confusion and not knowing what to say. I just don't understand," said Taylor Swift on Twitter, one of many posts by country artists on Twitter.

Brad Paisley wrote, "Could there be anything more cowardly than planting a bomb in a public place and running away?These terrorists are the epitome of cowardice."

"Boston, sending our thoughts and prayers..." said The Band Perry.

Joy Williams of The Civil Wars tweeted, "Sending my love and thoughts to those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings today."

"Can't sleep. My heart is heavy. I think about someone wanting to hurt my family and my blood boils. Boston, we love you," said Randy Houser.

"There is no reason. It just is. Hopefully we can use it for some kind of good," Gurf Morlix tweeted.

Jason Isbell wrote, referring to the Masters golf tournament, "There is no reason. It just is. Hopefully we can use it for some kind of good."

"Thoughts and prayers with all those in Boston. So sorry. Pray for our country. Words are hard to find to express the sorrow and emptiness," said Billy Ray Cyrus.

CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
