For people like me, for people like you, it is a great shame what the world got into. I wish I could wake up right now and this wasn’t true, but it is…”
“There are rich people north of Richmond, god knows they all want complete control,” he adds. “Want to know what you think, want to know what you do, and they don’t think you know, but I know you know. Because your dollar isn’t bad, and has unlimited taxes, call the rich people north of Richmond.

Anthony ‘in a state of shock’
whiskey river It was reported that Anthony lives off the grid on a 90-acre plot of land in Farmville, Virginia, with his three dogs. He’s always enjoyed writing songs in his spare time, but he has so much talent that he could definitely make a full-time career out of it.
However, even Anthony is surprised by the success of “Rich Men North of Richmond”.
He recently said, “‘Rich Men North of Richmond’ has been uploaded to all major streaming platforms and will be out there in a few days.” “I am still in a state of shock from the outpouring of love I have seen in the comments, messages and emails. I am working to respond to everyone as soon as possible.
I believe Trump has a new song for his rallies.
