    • Abstract:
      This study explores the ways in which country music has engaged with geopolitical issues surrounding the War on Terror. Using the idea of "popular geopolitics" as its theoretical point of departure, the intertext between the attitudes and understandings articulated in a corpus of "patriotic" post-9/11 country hits and those expressed in broader geopolitical discourse is considered. Although, on occasion, the sentiments expressed in country music work to disrupt dominant understandings, it is shown that country music has chosen to frame the War on Terror in ways that concur broadly with official (i.e. Bush administration) geopolitical discourse.
