Nashville Composer Remains Canceled One Year Later for Denouncing Arson at BLM Protest

Liberal Nashville composer Daniel Elder — who denounced arson at a Black Lives Matter riot last May — still remains canceled one year later, as his publisher has blackballed him, and local choral directors refuse to program his music for fear of receiving backlash. The musician says that after being canceled, he “started listening to voices on the right and the center,” which “shook me out of my prejudices.”
