(UnitedVoice.com) – Every once in a while, a song resonates with Americans on both sides of the political aisle. A new singer managed to release a song that broke down barriers, now he has released another on the heels of the first.
Christopher Anthony Lunsford, whose stage name is Oliver Anthony, released a breathtaking country song called “Rich Men North of Richmond” that spoke to working Americans. He posted a video on social media of himself belting out the tune that addresses middle-class America working for crappy wages while the politicians in Washington, DC, try to control everyone. He addressed people who have made welfare a job while people who are actually working for a living keep getting kicked in the teeth.
The song was so popular it debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Country Songs chart.
Politicians on both sides of the aisle have praised the singer for the song. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said the song is one “that Washington DC needs to hear” because it’s about “forgotten Americans that our government no longer cares about.” Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) called it a “good tune” and explained Anthony is singing about “the soullessness of work, [expletive] wages, and the power of the elites.”
Now, the singer has another song. This one is called “I Want to Go Home,” and it’s getting just as much attention as the first tune. The tune touches on the current state of the world and how it appears to be on the brink of another war. It also touches on his struggles with mental health problems. He sings about families farming on land for generations that is then sold to someone from out of town.
Country musician Oliver Anthony has released a new music video for his song, “I Want To Go Home.”
Unlike what many people on social media are saying (particularly conservatives), the name of the song is not “Brink of War.”

Again, the song struck a chord with the American people. According to Fox News, it’s estimated the singer is making tens of thousands of dollars every day from his first hit song. And it looks like he has no intention of slowing down.
