Today, in a landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of the nationwide legalization of gay marriage, ending state-level bans and allowing same-sex couples to marry in all 50 states. Naturally, the music world reacted with many positive, at times overjoyed, sentiments. The news comes in the wake of the horrific Charleston shootings last week, and should be just as divisive an issue as the banning of the Confederate flag. Overall, the country seems to be moving forward. But America still has a long way to go in terms of healing fundamental differences and human rights. You can see what many artists had to say about today’s decision below.
