He’s Singing Our Song
There’s a Blue Grass singer out of the south who is making huge waves in the country right now.
Rolling Stone Magazine writes it off as the “Right-Wing Influencers New Favorite Song” but what they, like many on the left side will miss is the words that people relate too because they aren’t listening, as usual.
In just a week Oliver Anthony has created quite a following.
A week ago he sang at a farmers market to a crowd of 60, a few days ago that number was 6,000.
His song and story are all over the news.
Here’s the song.
What people who hug the regressive side of politics in this country and the White House will miss is what the song is saying.
As usual, rather than listening they react but it really doesn’t matter.
Oliver Anthony is speaking for the common man and woman.
The words to his song are on point, rough and act as a sword to cut through the crap and get to the heart of the problem.
In a video posted last night, before Oliver sang, he read this scripture out of Psalms. 37:12-20.
“The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct.”
As he read those words a chill came over my body.
I am against no one but I am against evil.
There is so much more I want to say but it will take the focus off the simplicity of the song and the moment.
I hope Oliver Anthony’s soft, kind but very firm heart can help turn us around.
