SOUTH BEND, INDIANA - NOVEMBER 07: Fans storm the field after the Notre Dame Fighting Irish defeated the Clemson Tigers 47-40 in double overtime at Notre Dame Stadium on November 7, 2020 in South Bend, Indiana. (Photo by Matt Cashore-Pool/Getty Images)

The country artists are speaking out about what everyone has been seeing on social media recently.

Large crowds gathering.  So why can’t we have concerts?

I saw the same thing…even sent J.R. a video of my friend who was at the Notre Dame game over the weekend…the crowd on the field…I’m like wait a minute???

Look at this video!!

I can totally understand where they are coming from.  Why is it ok for these crowds to gather, but they cannot work.

They need to get back out working and doing shows.

Notre Dame’s upset victory over Clemson saw thousands of fans rush the field and the Biden/Harris victory in the 2020 Presidential Election has also seen large crowds gather as well. (Not to mention the political rallies that have been held in over the past few months).

Obviously, these aren’t sanctioned events and that’s where the difference lies, but many country artists still aren’t happy about it. Morgan Wallen, Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley, Jason and Brittany Aldean, Chase Rice, and Chris Lane are just some of the artists that have voiced their frustration.

It’s also worth pointing out that Morgan Wallen was recently removed from his Saturday Night Live performance after he was filmed partying down in Tuscaloosa.

It’s my understanding that the companies that put on the concerts are afraid of liability.  If someone catches the virus at a concert they put on, are they liable to get sued?  That’s the issue.

 

Morgan Wallen, Chase Rice & More Call For Return Of Concerts After Large Crowds Gather For Biden & College Football

It's no secret that the music industry has taken a massive blow thanks to COVID. And whether it's been socially-distanced shows, drive-in shows, virtual shows, or outdoor shows... artists are trying everything they can to get back on stage and get their bands and crews back to work.
