American Idol?

Sportsmen Should Tell ‘American Idol’: No “Home Sweet Home” for HSUS


Sportsmen have been contacting Fox Broadcasting since the release of our action alert yesterday about country music star Carrie Underwood’s rendition of “Home Sweet Home.”

According to Carrie Underwood’s official website and Sony Music’s country label, the song is going to be used each week on the hit television show when a contestant is voted off. The first airing of the song was last night, March 11.

Unfortunately, Underwood has made clear that a portion of the proceeds from subsequent sales of that song will go to benefit the largest anti-hunting organization in the nation, HSUS. This will give HSUS even more money to direct towards hunters, anglers, and trappers nationwide. You can read about this on HSUS website, by clicking here.

“Carrie Underwood has decided to use her talents to benefit an organization dedicated to destroying the rights of thousands of her fans,” said U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) senior vice president, Rick Story. “HSUS does not operate or oversee animal shelters; it is a radical organization that seeks to end hunting and other responsible uses of animals in America.”

Story said that sportsmen must send American Idol a strong message that its indirect support of HSUS, is not appreciated.

Sportsmen can make a difference. Companies such as Iams, General Mills, Accor Hotels, Pet Safe, Sears, Meijer Inc, and Ace Hardware ended relationships with HSUS after thousands of sportsmen levied strong protest.

The USSA will keep sportsmen informed of developments on this issue.

Take Action! Sportsmen are urged to contact key personnel at American Idol’s parent company, Fox Broadcasting and demand that Underwood’s song not be given a stage to raise money for HSUS.

Letters should be sent to:

Mr. Peter Liguori
Fox Broadcasting Company
Chairman of Entertainment
10201 West Pico Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90064-2606

Phone calls should be directed to Fox Broadcasting at 310-369-3066.
Faxes should be sent to:310-369-1283.

Also, e-mail the show at askfox@fox.com. Do not use the previous e-mail we sent in the previous action alert, as sportsmen have been receiving an automated e-mail.

Re: American Idol?

I told my wife that I liked the Motley Crue version better. To bad about Carrie... I liked her music and thought she was cute. Well..... she is still cute, but guess I am going to have to boycott her now.
