Well the question is based on my hypothesis that the vast majority of musicians and artists in general have a tendency to be socially liberal or progressive politically speaking. I was wondering why that was.

Conservatives seem to like rules and restraints based often upon religious reasons, whereas liberals seem to like being without rules as long as there is no harm done to anyone. Creative people despise boxes, because creativity itself is like a free-flowing river. Although there are artistic conservatives for sure, ut makes sense that the vast majority accept or have alternatives ways of interpreting the world. Art itself is as limitless in its forms as it is beauitful.2

Probably because to be an artist you have to be (1) more emotional and (2) more creative. It is the nature of conservatism to be much less of the former and usually less of the latter.
When artists are politically Right leaning they are Libertarian, in favor of everyone living as they please.2
