This month one unknown Virginia country star suddenly shot to fame.
And his scathing take on the elite political establishment soon morphed into a music industry takeover.
Now Oliver Anthony just dropped a new song that will have you questioning everything.
Independent musician Oliver Anthony has been riding a strong wave of political angst with his “Rich Men North of Richmond” hitting the top of even the Billboard Hot 100 music chart.
Furthermore, Anthony has the top three slots in the iTunes country chart locked with Jason Aldean’s “Try That In A Small Town” sitting in the number four slot.
In all, the musician who films his songs in a patch of backwoods Virginia with his dogs as an audience, has a jaw-dropping 20 songs on the iTunes top 100 country chart as his newfound fans flock to support an artist willing to express their raw frustration with the current political and economic situation.
On Wednesday, Anthony released a new song sure to become yet another massive hit.
Time to turn the wagons around
His latest song, “I Want to Go Home”, deals with living in a world that’s gone off the rails.
Anthony opens the song crooning, “If it weren’t for my old dogs and the good Lord, They’d have me strung up in the psych ward, ‘Cause every day livin’ in this new world is one too many days to me.”
The next stanza then touches on the current global political instability.
“Son, we’re on the brink of the next world war, And I don’t think nobody’s prayin’ no more,” he added. “And I ain’t sayin I know it for sure, I’m just down on my knees.”

At this point, Anthony is such a music industry sensation that his latest video was enough to earn him a write up in Billboard.
“On the heels of his history-making No. 1 with the viral hit ‘Rich Men North of Richmond,’ Oliver Anthony Music dropped a video for his new single, ‘I Want To Go Home.’” The industry trade publication reported. “The acoustic ballad — which was originally uploaded to TikTok in March — got a new video on Tuesday (Aug. 22).”
Billboard went on to describe the singer’s latest contribution as “another meditation on what ails the nation, which in Anthony’s telling includes mental illness, fears of war, urban spread, the loss of family farms and the lack of prayer in our lives.”
That respectful tone coming from a magazine in a largely woke industry speaks to the power of an unstoppable market force.
Coming on the heels of the Bud Light and Target boycotts, Oliver Anthony’s sudden rise to prominence is a clear sign conservatives are done spending their days as members of the silent majority.
