“I’ve done my research,” McCreery said, “and I feel like it’s a fine decision to go out there and play SeaWorld.”
After several high-profile artists backed out of planned performances at SeaWorld last year, others are now stepping in to fill their shoes, including “Redneck Woman” singer Wilson and comedian Engvall.
Alan Jackson and Kid Rock will headline two SeaWorld concerts this weekend after nine other performers dropped out in response to the documentary ‘Blackfish.’
Many of the criticisms against the park and its treatment of animals stem from the recently released documentary Blackfish. The film follows the life in captivity of an orca (a.k.a. ‘killer whale’) named Tilikum that attacked and killed his trainer (Dawn Brancheau) and two others in three separate instances.
