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.
Also, glad to see thousands gathering again, cool, glad that’s happening, concerts can resume????????— Chase Rice. (@ChaseRiceMusic) November 8, 2020
