Remarkable Virginia lyricist and musician, Oliver Anthony, has once again captured the nation's attention with his latest work, 'I Want To Go Home', becoming a trending sensation overnight.

Renowned Senator Ted Cruz, R.-Tx., joined the growing chorus of conservative admirers lauding the song, which premiered on Anthony's YouTube channel and has since racked up well over a million views.

Originally disclosed to Spotify in April, this country flying tune parallels its YouTube success with an impressive one million-plus streams.

In his commendation, Cruz highlighted the evocative power of Anthony's lyrics: 'Singing the truth is powerful. Congrats to the viral singer-songwriter for composing another unparalleled anthem for our era.'

The senate power isn't the only conservative voice echoing this sentiment.

Prominent figures like Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, commentator Matt Walsh, and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R.-GA., also acknowledged the budding musician's success.

Greene praised Anthony's earlier hit 'Rich Men North of Richmond' as every American's anthem who contributes to the nation and the world with their intense effort and hard-earned tax dollars.

'This song represents my district and the people of America I know and love', she added.

In 'I Want To Go Home', Anthony muses about the crushing weight of everyday life and the mounting anxieties as we approach what he views as the brink of the next world war.

His honest and bold lyricism sets him apart, heralding a new era of country music that speaks to the heart of a disturbed generation.

This humble Virginia native's music has fervently resonated with people far beyond the American plains, reaching the hearts of listeners in countries Anthony confesses he doesn't even know how to pronounce.

His words have globally moved millions, with messages of support flowing in from various corners of the world.

Anthony exhibited one such performance at the Eagle Creek Golf Club & Grill in Moyock, North Carolina, on August 19, attended by a crowd of around 4,000, all of whom were treated to a free display of his raw talent.

His music's rousing success has catapulted him to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which according to trade journal Hits lands him an estimated $40,000 a day from streams and sales of his music.

However, Anthony’s concern is not about fame or fortune.

In a telling instance on social media, he mentioned turning down million-dollar offers not once but multiple times, despite the bewilderment of industry insiders at his resistance to claimed wealth.

He wrote, 'I wrote the music I wrote because I was suffering with mental health and depression.'

Anthony’s meteoric rise to stardom is a testament to his authentic portrayal of a generation disillusioned and frustrated, serenading them with melodies that echo their inner struggles and fears.

His work continues to challenge industry norms and resonate with the heart and soul of audiences far and wide.
