Bette Midler, Barry Manilow Among Others Make The NRA’s Enemies List

NashvilleGab February 13, 2013 Shania Twain and Terri Clark make it onto the prestigious NRA enemies list Midler The NRA (National Rifle Association) is sort of like PETA in my book — they have a good cause they fight for for the most part, they just tend to get a little too wacko and out in left field for my comfort. Despite country music and guns going together like peanut butter and jelly, Mork & Mindy, or the birds & the bees, there are a few country singers out there who the NRA really doesn’t like much. In fact, they like these country stars so little that they’ve added them to their hate list. Ouch. According to Buzzfeed, the NRA’s enemies list came to light last fall and includes over 200 celebrities who have “lent their name and notoriety to anti-gun causes, speaking out for anti-gun legislation and providing a voice for anti-gun organizations.” Shania Twain, Sheryl Crow, and Terri Clark all made it onto this prestigious list.
