Country Artists Upset By Crowds Celebrating in the Streets
Saturday night after the Associated Press named Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in cities across America. This caught the attention of some country music artists, who felt that if it was safe enough to celebrate in large groups who were not social distancing, it should be safe enough to bring country music concerts back.
Morgan Wallen posted the following message on his Instagram account.
If you don't agree with me, fine. We can still be friends. But I have a family, a band, and crew that need to be provided for and taken care of. If it's ok for us to party in the streets with no "social distancing" then we can book shows right now.
Wallen sent out another Instagram post that said simply, "The hypocrisy is unreal."
Brian Kelly from Florida Georgia Line was also upset when he witnessed the large crowds gathering on Saturday. Kelly posted,
Knew we were waiting on the election since March when this sh*$ show started . . . Time to go back to work AMERICA. Booking shows ASAP.
When will big concerts return? Hard to say. There was good news reported today that a possible COVID-19 vaccine could be coming our way soon. Maybe as soon as the spring of 2021. If that happens, we could be sharing beers and enjoying our favorite country artists on stage next summer.
