Country Star John Rich Condemns Tyrannical Leaders Destroying Our Nation

Country music star‌ John Rich, one half of ⁢the iconic duo “Big‍ & ​Rich,” recently released a powerful new song that has⁢ quickly climbed to the top of the‌ charts. Titled “Progress,” the ​song takes aim at the liberal “progress” that is destroying our country, and it has struck⁣ a chord with many Americans who are tired of the direction our nation is heading in.

Breaking Away from the Music Industry “Machine”

Rich, who got his ⁢start ​in Nashville at Opryland ⁣USA right out ⁣of high school, has reached the pinnacle of success in ‌the⁣ music industry. ​However, he has become increasingly frustrated with the industry’s push towards woke ideologies and the suppression of conservative voices.

So, instead of ⁢going through the traditional channels, Rich decided to release his song through two free-speech social media platforms: Truth Social, owned by former President ‍Donald Trump, and Rumble, a video community. Within hours of its release, “Progress” soared to the ‌number one spot on the ‌Apple iTunes song chart, beating out heavy hitters​ like⁤ Billie Eilish and Lizzo.

Rich’s decision to⁣ bypass the “machine”‌ and go‌ straight‍ to the people has been met with​ both praise ‌and criticism. But for Rich, it was a matter‍ of staying true to his beliefs and principles.

A Message to the Tyrants Running‍ Our Country

The lyrics of “Progress” are a direct challenge to the⁢ views of⁣ liberals. Rich sings, “They say building back better will make ‍America great, but if that’s the ​wave of the future, all I’ve got to say is, stick your ⁣progress where the ‌sun don’t shine. Keep your big mess away from me⁣ and mine.”

He goes on to urge the tyrants running our country into the ground to leave us alone, saying, “If you leave us alone, well, we’d all be just fine.”

Choosing Free-Speech Platforms

In an interview, Rich explained his decision to release his song on Truth Social and ​Rumble, saying, “When I’m talking about them⁣ shutting down our voices, I’m talking ‍about Twitter​ and YouTube⁣ and Facebook. And I thought, you know ‍what,​ I’m gonna reach⁢ out to Truth Social and reach out to Rumble because they‌ still allow free speech over ⁤there.”

He added, “Why⁢ would ⁢I launch this song on the platforms that I’m railing against in the lyrics?”

Rich hopes that his success in bypassing⁢ the traditional ⁢music industry ⁤will inspire⁢ other artists to do the ⁤same and stay true to their own beliefs and principles.

A Path Forward

For​ Rich, this is more than just⁤ a successful ⁣release of‌ a new song. It’s⁣ a path forward for artists who are tired of being silenced by the “machine”​ and want to stay true to their values.

He said, “It means⁣ that if you bring the right content, and you have‌ people like Truth and⁣ Rumble that will get that message to your⁢ core audience, you can beat the ‍machine that’s been put in place to keep people like me shut down.”

Inspired by the Decline of ⁢Our Country

The inspiration for “Progress” came to⁤ Rich after months of watching our country decline. He said, “I’m watching what I consider to be the dismantling of our country at⁢ a lot of different levels. And when you sit back and look ⁢at it, the vast ⁤majority of it’s being perpetrated on us under the banner of ‘progress.'”

He added, ⁤”Like ​in the name​ of progress, we’re going to send‍ gasoline through the roof so you have to buy an electric car.”

Standing Up to Country Radio

Rich has⁣ also‌ faced pushback from country radio stations who are hesitant to play his new song. He explained, “Here’s the problem with country radio. ‍It’s not your DJs at the radio⁣ station. It’s the people way up the food chain that run the conglomerates that have bought up 90% of all of our radio stations.”

He added,⁤ “There’s a big [contingent] of‍ them that do not like anybody bucking ‌their woke system.”

A True Maverick in the⁤ Music Industry

John Rich’s decision to⁢ release “Progress” through alternative platforms and his⁤ refusal to compromise his beliefs for success make him a true maverick in the music industry. Whether you agree with him or not, one thing is clear: he will not sell his soul to⁣ the highest bidder.
