The 89(+) Dedicated Articles on SCM Featuring POC & LGBT Artists

In the continued and ongoing effort to slander, cancel, and deplatform Saving Country Music based on Jussie Smollett-style fake accusations by rival journalists tied to coverage of the death of Charley Pride, performer Margo Price made some defaming comments about me, Kyle “Trigger” Coroneos, on Saturday evening (12-19).

“it’s encouraging to see lots of people speaking out against the hack blogger Kyle Coroneos,” she said in a tweet. “he’s an uneducated, misogynistic, racist, homophobic bully who has harrassed me and many others for years. anyone still sharing/supporting this small minded man is lost.”

But along with no evidence of this supposed misogyny, racist, and homophobic behavior, what Margo Price and others making these unfounded accusations are overlooking is the reams of positive coverage Saving Country Music publishes every year in a dedicated focus of elevating the voices of minorities and LGBT members in country music.

So as a simple illustration of the support Saving Country Music shows to minorities and LGBT members in country, here is a list of 89 dedicated features covering these artists posted over the last few years to go along with the list of 97 Women SCM Has Featured in 2020 alone.

This is very unlikely all the coverage Saving Country Music has posted for these artists. However, in lieu of going through every article posted on the site, searches for artists were conducted to compile this list for time efficiency. Nonetheless, it should underpin that accusations of being exclusionary to LGBT members and minorities is baseless.

Please appreciate that this is in no way encapsulates all the coverage that LGBT members and minorities have received on Saving Country Music in 2020. For example, this doesn’t include the dozens of playlist updates where featured artists get a write up when they’re added. It also doesn’t include the quarterly “Most Anticipated” posts where upcoming releases from artists are featured. It doesn’t include bands that may have minority members in the lineup, like Mike and the Moonpies. It also doesn’t include recap festival coverage or social media and Instagram posts.

Thanks for reading.
