LISTEN: John Rich hits #1 on iTunes with patriotic, anti-revival song

Country music superstar John Rich hit the top of the charts with a hit song telling woke rumblings precisely what to do with their “progress”.

The song, “Progress,” reached No. 1 on iTunes, beating new releases from Billie Eilish and Lizzo, as well as Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,” which returned to the charts after being featured on “Stranger Things”. .” The lyrics to Rich’s latest hit are packed with messages for liberals and the Biden administration.

“They say building back better will make America great,” sings Rich, who is one half of legendary country music duo Big & Rich. “If this is the wave of the future, all I have to say, [is] stick your progress where the sun doesn’t shine. Keep your big mess away from me and mine. If you leave us alone, well, we’ll be fine.

Rich, who originally released the song on Truth Social and Rumble, tweeted a screenshot of the latest chart, along with a message of gratitude to his fans.

“It was good to beat the machine today 🙂 Thanks to all of you for your overwhelming support! We are making great #Progress #NumberOne #Worldwide,” Rich tweeted.

The video that accompanies the song is another indictment of the Biden administration, showing empty shelves of infant formula, rioting and skyrocketing prices.

Rich, a longtime conservative who supported Donald Trump in 2016, performed at a pre-inaugural concert with Big Kenny, the other half of Big & Rich. A frequent guest on Fox News, he co-wrote a song called “Shut Up About Politics” with the network’s Greg Gutfeld and also hosts the series “The Pursuit!” with John Rich” on Fox Business Network. The show seeks to inspire and unite Americans around the rights set out in the Declaration of Independence, particularly the “pursuit of happiness,” he has previously said.

Rich also scored a hit late last year with fellow conservative Mike Rowe called “Santa’s Gotta Dirty Job.” Proceeds went to Folds of Honor, a nonprofit that provides scholarships to military families, and the mikeroweWORKS Foundation.

Rich told a fan on Twitter that the latest hit was also a collaboration, though he didn’t name his co-writers.

“Me and some Patriot friends wrote it down,” he tweeted. “Glad you like it!”
