After his impassioned song “Rich Men North of Richmond” went viral earlier this year, alt-country guitarist and singer Oliver Anthony is set to perform at Cullman’s Rock the South in 2024.

Anthony’s three-minute-long lament about the state of the country, which points to connections between powerful politicians and infamous pedophile Jeffery Epstein, complains about inflation and criticizes the welfare state, reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August. He is now the only artist in music history to top the chart without previously charting.

Anthony will join other popular country and pop music acts such as Eric Church, Jelly Roll, Hardy and more on July 18-20 next year in Cullman.

Rock the South has been held since 2012 when it was created to celebrate the Cullman area’s recovery from the EF4 tornado that struck the region in 2011.

Since then, the event has been home to popular country music stars such as Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bently, Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson and Thomas Rhett.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. Ticket prices will increase the closer it gets to July. They can be purchased via the Rock the South website here.
