Country Music Stars Share Their Anger And Sadness Following Charlottesville Riot

Unreal.

Unless you’ve been hiding from the news, you know exactly what went down Saturday (Aug. 12). Many, if not all, news outlets covered the tragedy, including The New York Times if you’d like to learn more…

“The city of Charlottesville was engulfed by violence on Saturday as white nationalists and counterprotesters clashed in one of the bloodiest fights to date over the removal of Confederate monuments across the South.”

Many country artists used their platforms to speak out against the violence and the current state of our country.

Tim McGraw shared his song “Humble and Kind” along with a disappointed message:

“This cannot stand. These days surely MUST be behind us

I love when I see artists use their platforms to bring light to issues instead of always trying to sell their followers tour t-shirts and tickets. These guys did it right…

Wheeler Walker Jr. took a comedic approach. Are you even surprised?
