whiskey river It was reported that Anthony lives off the grid with his three dogs on 90 acres of land in Farmville, Virginia. On Thursday morning, Anthony made it clear on social media that despite the success of his song, he has no intention of changing his lifestyle.

‘Nothing special about me’

“Rich Men North of Richmond” shows how talented Anthony is as both a singer and songwriter, yet he remains incredibly humble and grounded.

Anthony wrote, “Nothing special in me.” “I’m not a good musician, I’m not a very good person. I have spent the last 5 years struggling with mental health and turning to alcohol to drown it. It saddens me to see that the world is in this condition where everyone is fighting with each other. I’ve spent many nights feeling hopeless, that the greatest nation on earth is fast disappearing.

Anthony describes himself as a high school dropout who has spent the past nine years working in industrial manufacturing and “getting to know thousands of other blue-collar workers on job sites and in factories.” I spend the whole day every day for the last 10 years listening to the same story. People are very tired of being ignored, divided and manipulated.

Anthony is also surprised with the response his hit song is getting.

“It has been difficult as I have been browsing through the over 50,000 messages and emails I have received in the last week. The stories that have been shared paint a very honest picture,” he said. “Suicide, addiction, unemployment, anxiety and depression, hopelessness and the list goes on…”

“I’m sitting at a weird place in my life right now,” he said. “I never wanted to be a full-time musician, let alone top the iTunes charts. RadioWv’s Draven and I filmed this tune on our soil with the hope that it can get 300k views. I still can’t believe what has happened since we uploaded. It’s just weird to me.”

Anthony concluded his message by writing, “Like those who once wandered in the desert, we have lost our way to God and false idols have distracted and divided us. It is a matter of great shame.
