MUSIC NEWS: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2017 MEGHAN LINSEY - TAKE A KNEE Meghan Linsey defends her decision to take a knee after singing the national anthem before Sunday's Seahawks-Titans game to protest racism. Linsey tells Newsweek as a ``white, blonde, privileged woman in the music industry,'' she knew what that move would carry. She says she knelt ``out of love'' for the U-S rather than a demonstration against anyone. Linsey says a lot of country musicians are scared to express their opinions, and she's gotten a lot of negative comments, but she's also had people say they're now fans of hers. Her guitarist, Tyler Cain, says they had agreed beforehand they would both take a knee. --- TAMAR BRAXTON PLANS TO STOP RECORDING Tamar Braxton says her upcoming album will be her last one because she needs to focus on her family. Braxton tells ``Entertainment Tonight'' that ``whatever I can…
