From Joe - Why Anthony Oliver's "Rich Men North of Richmond" Country song suddenly became Famous.

This song by a no-name Appalachian miner – Anthony Oliver – who simply used his cell phone to video himself - should never have even hit the airwaves – but it became viral within days after Oliver uploaded it and is now one the greatest hits in America.

This song struck a literal chord in the hearts of millions for a reason that only the lyrics can explain.

John Levell has analyzed the reason why such a song has become so popular. He describes the song as a Funeral Song written for America.

Here is the song as it was originally created.
