Country music star says woke culture in the industry began as early as 2008
April 14, 2023
Country music star John Rich thinks the seedlings of so-called “woke culture” began to appear in the country music industry as early as 2008.
“Which would coincide with Obama’s election,” Rich told Just the News in an exclusive interview. “I was told not to do certain interviews with outlets like Fox and not talk about certain subjects.”
Barack Obama is a Democrat and the country’s first black president.
Rich says that about the same time Obama took office, a lot of label executives started being replaced with ones who had never been in the country music business.
“The old Nashville guard started to be replaced with executives from L.A or New York who weren’t even country music fans,” he said.
