With the presidential election less than a month away, several country artists have been lending their voices to their favorite candidates. Trace Adkins, LeAnn Rimes and Charlie Daniels sang at the Republican National Convention, while Sugarland and Sheryl Crow performed at the Democratic National Convention. And John Rich went so far as to write a song, 'Raising McCain,' for the Republican ticket.

But not everyone in country music is in favor of mixing music with politics. Gretchen Peters is furious that her hit song, 'Independence Day' -- famously recorded by Martina McBride, is being used in ads supporting Republican vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.

"The fact that the McCain/Palin campaign is using a song about an abused woman as a rallying cry for their vice presidential candidate -- a woman who would ban abortion even in cases of rape and incest -- is beyond irony," Peters vents to GAC. "They are co-opting the song, completely overlooking the context and message, and using it to promote a candidate who would set women's rights back decades."

Peters is turning her anger into action. She's getting revenge on Republicans by supporting a nonprofit organization that Governor Palin probably isn't too fond of.

"I've decided to donate the royalties from 'Independence Day' during this election cycle to Planned Parenthood, in Sarah Palin's name," Peters reports. "I hope with the additional income provided by the McCain/Palin campaign, Planned Parenthood will be able to help many more women in need."

This isn't Peters' first battle over 'Independence Day.' The famed songwriter has been fighting conservative radio host Sean Hannity for years over his use of the song on his show. Peters has even gone so far as to make large donations to organizations in sharp contrast to his beliefs, including the ACLU, PFLAG and MoveOn.org, every time he broadcasts the song.
