Don't stress it if it's a long drive for you. I'll be coming to your town soon."

The song has racked up over 2 million views in just two days since its release and over 1 million on YouTube. Legendary country star John Rich offered his assistance to help produce a record.

Rich Men North of Richmond highlights the struggles of the working class in America. 

"I've been selling my soul, working all day, overtime hours, for bullsh*t pay," the song begins. "So, I can sit out here and waste my life away. Drag back home and drown my troubles away."  

Anthony sings about the "rich men north of Richmond" who "want to have total control" of decisions in the country.  

"Your dollar ain't sh*t, and it's taxed to no end, 'cause of rich men north of Richmond," he sings.

Anthony revealed to Jason Howerton, who founded the High Value Dad newspaper, that prior to writing the song he had struggled with mental health and alcoholism.  

Now Anthony appears to have a promising future with his new song and these new opportunities.

Anthony lives in Farmville, Virginia with three dogs and plot of land where plans to raise livestock. The largest influence on his music is Hank Williams Jr.
