Recently, up-and-coming country singer Oliver Anthony was joined on stage for a performance with legendary artist Jame Johnson. The duo sang a cover of Johnson’s hit song “In Color” to a massive crowd at an outdoor venue.
Anthony recently exploded onto the country music scene, going from being a little-known artist to topping the charts with his new hit single “Rich Men North of Richmond.” The song essentially calls out the swamp in Washington, D.C., which many right-wing Americans feel has consolidated power and misrepresented the interests of many Americans.
Jason Howerton posted a video to Twitter showing Oliver Anthony and Jame Johnson’s amazing duo together. “An unforgettable moment just happened… country legend Jamey Johnson joined @AintGottaDollar for a surprise performance of his epic song ‘In Color,'” the caption read.

Off the bat, we are reminded of the authenticity of many country music musicians, as demonstrated by this video. Unlike the music of other popular genres, true country music isn’t filled with auto-tune or over-produced beats. However, there is a growing presence of corporatized Nashville country music that features this. The performance in this video, particularly Johnson’s vocals, sounds just as good as the studio-recorded version of the song.
Anthony recently tweeted about the surprising newfound success of “Rich Men North of Richmond.” The musician captioned the post with a video of him performing the song “Rich Men North of Richmond has been uploaded to all major streaming platforms and will show up there in a few days. Im still in a state of shock at the outpouring of love I’ve seen in the comments, messages and emails. I’m working to respond to everyone as quickly as possible.”

Others have pointed out Oliver Anthony’s shocking success as his new song has skyrocketed to the number one song in America. What’s even more impressive is that it’s not just “Rich Men North of Richmond” that has topped charts, but three other songs by Anthony have hit the top 10. Benny Johnson tweeted, “BREAKING: “Rich Men North Of Richmond” is the NUMBER ONE song in America But wait, there’s more! Oliver Anthony — a rural Farmer unknown just 48 hours ago — has THREE SONGS (!!!) in the Top 10. The most famous musicians on earth often never achieve this. Culture is Power:”

The wildly popular song from Oliver Anthony artist follows an undeniable trend in American culture, where non-woke country artists are topping the charts. Only weeks ago, Jason Aldean’s “Try That In A Small Town” crushed the charts following controversy and attacks from the woke mob.
The American Tribune also reported on a new country singer, Austin Moody, who burst onto the scene after releasing his hit song “I’m Just Sayin.” Moody slammed liberal politics and decaying American society, claiming that he was “just sayin” he didn’t want his daughter to grow up in a society run by the left.
These trends of success in the country music scene highlight how conservative Americans are hungry for music and entertainment that aligns with their values. So many of the mainstream cultural offerings in America simply contradict the values that many average people hold.
