Southern Baptist Convention 2021 offers a Trump and critical race theory litmus test

Want a preview of the 2022 election cycle? Look no further than the Southern Baptist Convention, or SBC, starting this week in Nashville, Tennessee. The Republican "culture wars" playbook will be front and center at this high-profile meeting of America's largest Protestant denomination. The SBC is set to tackle buzzy topics like critical race theory, or CRT, sex abuse and women's role in ministry. But the most pressing question is how will a denomination that formed in part to defend slavery deal with racism. Will it condemn CRT and risk losing Black churches and members? Or will it strike a middle ground?

'I've Always Been Crazy': The Story Behind Waylon Jennings' Wayward Hit

There's truly only a few real outlaws in country music, and Waylon Jennings is most certainly one of them. After trying for years to find country music fame in Nashville and becoming increasingly frustrated with the restrictions that went along with the "Nashville sound" or "Countrypolitan" music industry, Jennings, along with Willie Nelson and others, established outlaw country. The outlaw movement was defined by the artists' ability to have freedom within their music while being open about their wild lifestyles. In the early '70s, the outlaw movement brought Jennings success with the release of albums like Lonesome, On'ry and Mean, The Ramblin' Man, I've Always Been Crazy, and hit songs such as "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" and "I Ain't Living Long Like This."
