“Rich Men North of Richmond” is the most listened to track in the world in the past 24 hours.
This American working-man’s protest song has millions & millions of plays.
Sung by an off-the-grid farmer in the countryside with his dogs.

This song is called "Rich Men North of Richmond." It has been viewed MILLIONS of times.
The artist's name is Oliver Anthony. I just got off the phone with him.

And now look at him! This was at his event over the weekend.
Ya'll filled 25 acres with cars for the first-ever gig! I am so proud to be a part of this moment in history.
Thanks to everyone who stayed after for photos and to tell me your story. It means more than words can describe.
