There has been a battle brewing in country music over the last few years.

Young country-pop singers are increasingly going all “Taylor Swift” and infecting the genre with leftist activism.

But now this young country music star says her mom’s near-abortion made her a strong fighter for Life.

Country music was once a reliably conservative genre in an otherwise leftist entertainment industry.

A blonde “firecracker” explodes on the scene

But a bitter battle has been brewing in country music the last few years, with young left-wing activists like Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris trying to turn Nashville into just another woke leftist brand of entertainment extremism. 

Fortunately, country music has remained largely true to its patriotic, freedom-loving, and Christian values. 

And new stars like RaeLynn are stepping up to make sure it stays that way. 

The blonde “firecracker,” as she calls herself, has refused to shy away from her Christian faith since arriving on the Nashville scene just a decade ago. 

And since marrying her Green Beret husband, Josh Davis, and having a little girl, she’s felt more compelled than ever to put her convictions out front. 

“I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I’m a songwriter. I’m a country artist — and I guess now an influencer, whatever that means,” she joked in a recent interview with PragerU. 

RaeLynn grew up in a broken home, which she sings about in her heart-wrenching song “Love Triangle.” 

The Texan singer said, “The biggest thing in our home was the Bible and Jesus. My family had a church in Baytown, and so I grew up always at the church, always serving our community. I wouldn’t have anything without God, and I know that for sure.” 

But RaeLynn says she also knew she was “a little too rough around the edges for Christian music.” 

She chose me

So she turned to country music instead. 

“I just loved the songwriting … and I loved the honky tonk music and the fiddles and the guitar, but mainly the storytelling.” 

The Texas songstress got her start after a chance encounter in a coffee shop where she was singing.

RaeLynn says she was encouraged to try out for “The Voice.” 

“I ended up making the show. Blake [Shelton] and Adam [Levine] both turned around for me,” a sign she’d been chosen, “and in that moment, my life did change. I never in a million years thought that I would be on a huge national television show.” 

After three hugely popular albums, RaeLynn has started sharing intimate details about her family in her recent songs. 

One of those songs from 2021, “She Chose Me,” is a deeply personal and moving song about how her mom, a married woman who faced an unexpected pregnancy with another man, thought abortion was the only way out.

In her mid-20s, “I started asking questions, and I found out some truths that I didn’t necessarily know. And it was hard for me to know that my mom almost didn’t choose me, almost decided that she didn’t know if that was the right path for her.” 

RaeLynn told Candace Owens that her mom had even gone so far as to make an appointment to end RaeLynn’s life. “But I am so grateful that she decided to keep me and make that decision.”
