Country Star John Rich: ‘Threat of Cancellation,’ ‘Step Deeper Than’ Cancel Culture, Silencing Conservative Country Music Artists

Country music star John Rich of Big & Rich told Breitbart News this weekend that the “very liberal” majority of those in the country music industry have become “emboldened” in recent months to push woke leftist ideology publicly in contravention of the views of the majority of the country music audience. Rich said that the mere “threat of cancellation” keeps conservative-leaning artists from speaking out, arguing that it is actually a “step deeper than” cancel culture–ultimately creating a divide between the country music industry and the country music audience.
