Popular country musician John Rich won a lawsuit against a concert promoter who sued him during the pandemic.

Rich canceled a show at a venue that was attempting to ban his unvaccinated fans from attending. If Rich didn’t cancel, fans would have been forced to “show their papers” for proof of vaccination.

🚨 POLL: Are you unvaxxed and unafraid?
YES 👍 or NO 👎

“During the lockdowns, I stated I’d NEVER play a concert venue that forced fans to show their ‘papers’ for entry concerning COVID,” Rich said.

“One venue added that rule after I agreed to play, so I cancelled it,” he added. “The promoter sued me. He LOST the case today! Happy to say I never bent the knee.”

Rich has been outspoken about his politics and he is seeing massive success by rejecting the Democrat’s “woke” agenda for America.

He released an anti-woke anthem that is ironically titled “Progress.” The song hit the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ country music chart when it was released. The song was promoted on President Donald Trump’s Truth Social platform.

Written by John Rich, Jeffrey Steele and Vicky McGehee, the song pushes back against liberal policies.

The lyrics read: “Stick your progress where the sun don’t shine / Keep your big mess away from me and mine / If you leave us alone, well we’d all be just fine / Stick your progress where the sun don’t shine.” Watch the music video below:

Many people supported Rich canceling the concert that required proof of vaccination.

One critic responded, “I won’t be attending any of your concerts anytime soon. With that attitude, the likely attendees are going to be a concentrated group of anti-vaxxers. It sounds like a great place to catch COVID. To other John Rich fans: if you’re smart, you will stay away too.”

Rich responded, “Sounds like a plan.”
