I am not sure what to make of this summary:
The singer crafted an identity around his macho, pro-American swagger and wrote songs that fans loved to hear in his three decades in country music.
So…. he was not authentically macho? Not authentically pro-American? A sissy because a real man doesn’t die of cancer at 62?
Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but probably not. This clever wordsmith (or AI trained by clever wordsmiths) is making a point.
But never mind. Onto the real news.
Probably the best advice I’ve gotten in a while.
