Oliver Anthony said he’s turned offers worth millions of dollars after going viral with his song “Rich Men North Of Richmond,” emphasizing that he doesn’t want to be in the “spotlight.” In a post on Facebook, the singer-songwriter from Virginia shared that his real name is Christopher Anthony Lunsford and that the name Oliver Anthony is a dedication to his grandfather (who bears the name) and the “1930’s Appalachia where he was born and raised.” Oliver said he never wanted to be a “full-time musician.”

I can understand the defiance toward easy money, but you prove nothing to those who do not. Take the offers that will benefit your community, then set up a private foundation and SHOW what a boon can do for a group of people who need help WITHOUT gov't interference.

The true irony of these labels trying to sign him is not one of them would have released this song. Probably not have let him record it either. The famous singers flocking to sing and be seen with him have left a bad taste in my mouth as well. Look at what happened to Jelly Roll. Had one great song that was very relatable and now he’s living the “dream”. Good for Mr Anthony for not falling into the trap.

I had seen another song he uploaded several months ago...long before this "Viral" one, he just does them with a cellphone on a stand. He has a good voice, interesting lyric/song writing, playing a dobro/metal body guitar is not "common" anywhere other than rural porches and backyards. He'll get money from having so many views...If he wants to just skip the whole "Packaged Fame/Fortune" of mega music media, I applaud him.(watch the arc of Lady Gaga's character in the recent "Star is Born" movie). Some money comes at a Price...Big Money has a BIG price, one you pay with your soul, and it comes with jackals and hyenas, scrabbling over the scraps, biting on your backside. I'm guessing that in his particular case family, ex-friends...ex women friends...would grow looooong teeth if he was suddenly worth $millions. If he has been struggling with addiction/alcohol/depression...he may well know that to much money will KILL him. Just as it has an awful lot of musicians(and sports stars, lottery winners). He has time on his need to hurry into anything.

Poster #3 - his Gretsch resonator is the main reason I originally viewed his video. I bought an identical one while visiting Sweetwater Music in Indiana a few years ago. It was cheap - under $300 (the case was extra) but I wanted to try my hand at some slide guitar. I will say this - after watching him perform at two different venues here in NC, he's definitely captured some lightning in a bottle that working folks can relate to. I hope he manages to avoid the pitfalls and temptations that abound for the naive entering into the music industry. He needs to keep it like he found it - raw, authentic, soulful, and above all else, truthful. Good luck to him. greyseal

Gee, it would seem that making a few millions in a hurry, but not agreeing to do anything against your principles (might not be possible to do that) and then 'retiring' and going back to your normal life with a solid bank account improvement for your retirement might be a good choice. But, he's going to do what seems right to him. Best wishes for him, hope he keeps his life the way he wants it and doesn't get rolled over and damaged by the 'fame truck' which seems to flatten so many in that line of work.

The open gates allow migrants to freely walk through the border wall and into the Arizona desert. Border Patrol officials admitted responsibility for a decision to weld open flood gates in sections of border wall near Lukeville, the New York Post reported. The admission reportedly came after the agency attempted to blame other federal agencies for the action that allows thousands of migrants to freely cross into what is now the nation’s busiest border sector.

CNN climate reporter Bill Weir gushed over President Joe Biden’s remarks this week in Maui where he compared the worst fire the U.S. has experienced in over 100 years to a small kitchen fire at his home nearly two decades ago. The Maui wildfires earlier this month killed well over 100 people, with more than 1,000 still unaccounted for, and destroyed nearly 3,000 structures, according to state and local officials. “President and Dr. Biden spent several hours both over Lahaina on the ground here and meeting with both first responders and victims of this tragedy at the big shelter, the War Memorial shelter in central Maui,” Weir began.

Greene, who is also a surrogate for the Trump campaign, argued that given Trump’s wide lead in the polls of likely primary voters, the race for the Republican nomination was all but over,

Hawaii Democrat Governor Josh Green took to “Face the Nation” Sunday to agree with host Margaret Brennan’s assertion that climate change “amplified” Maui’s horrific wildfires. However, there were multiple failures on many fronts by authorities, including warning sirens that didn’t go off, delays of much-needed water because of “equity concerns,” negligence by a power company, and disaster officials who had no experience in emergency management. Green: "GOVERNOR JOSH GREEN: So it's usually tsunamis and hurricanes [that are a danger to Hawaii]. For perspective, we've had six fire emergencies this August. We had six fire emergencies between 1953 and 2003. That's how -- how fast things are changing.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc.’s stock tumbled 22% Tuesday, after the retailer’s second-quarter profit missed consensus by a wide margin, while sales also fell short., and the company squarely blamed theft for its woes. It was the company’s first earnings miss in three years. The last time Dick’s missed profit and sales consensus was in April of 2020, when it was reporting first-quarter earnings for that year. “While we posted another double-digit EBT margin, our Q2 profitability was short of our expectations due in large part to the impact of elevated inventory shrink, an increasingly serious issue impacting many retailers,” said CEO Lauren Hobart in a statement.

A summer surge of COVID-19 has some wondering aloud if we should return to mask mandates. For now, the official line, despite the media effort to rekindle coronavirus hysteria, is that it’s unlikely. But we heard that before, in 2020, right before public health officials dropped their mask tyranny on us. If they do it again, we have an obligation to say no. Are we calling for civil disobedience? Are we suggesting that Americans resist orders that are not laws but are instead decrees issued by despots? Absolutely, and without reservation. Masks are dehumanizing.
