If you’ve seen CoJo live you know that besides putting on one of the best damn shows in country music, he also spends some time every night paying tribute to veterans and first responders – all the heroes in uniform who fought for and protect our freedom.
And during his recent show at The Country Fest in North Lawrence, Ohio, Cody delivered another epic rant letting everybody know just how he feels about the people in Hollywood who seem to think that their celebrity status somehow makes them an expert on running the country.
“What I’m tired of is people in Hollywood thinking their opinion matters because they have a blue check next to their name on Twitter.
I’m gonna say this one time: I don’t care if you’re left, I don’t care if you’re right, I don’t care whether you are black, brown, or white.
The only colors that matter right here are the United States red, white and blue.”
Cody also has a pretty simple solution for all the negativity: Just turn off the news.
“I got a challenge for you: When you turn on three different news stations, and all they want to preach is negativity, all they want to tell you is how this country’s going, ‘be fearful,’ ‘you should be scared,’ ‘don’t go outside.’
Turn the news station off.
When you’ve got people in your life that want to run down my United States of America, turn ’em off. You will not miss ’em, I promise.”
Cody acknowledges that what he’s saying is probably going to piss some people off, and some will probably call him “very hateful names” because “apparently it’s unpatriotic to be patriotic these days.”
But CoJo’s never one to back down from a fight, whether it’s with the music industry or people who have problems with his country.
So before launching into his defiant “Doubt Me Now,” Cody has a message for all those folks:
