Multi gold record recording artist, and “Proud to be an American” country singer Toby Keith. Who’s best known for after the September 11 attacks writing the song “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue”, has come out in favor of same sex marriage (sort of) and also for the recent Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal in a recent interview with “CMT Insider” airing Saturday on Country Music Television
Keith says gay marriage doesn’t bother him and trying to stop it just wastes time and money and that he doesn’t see the reason behind getting into people’s personal lives. He says refusing a marriage license to people because they are gay won’t stop them from living together, so it accomplishes nothing.
Keith , who since 2002 has has made numerous trips to the Middle East to bring entertainment and encouragement to the men and women serving on or near the front lines. and has said “My father was a soldier. He taught his kids to respect veterans,” Also weighed in on the military’s now-repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that banned gays serving openly in uniform saying that anyone with the training and passion should have the right to defend the country, adding: “Somebody’s sexual preference is, like, who cares?”
