Wynn Varble is one of the most prolific song country music songwriters in the industry, having written music for stars like Garth Brooks, Trace Adkins, and Brad Paisley.
His most recent creation, however, is not a ballad about getting drunk or his most recent heartache with a woman. Varble and co-songwriter Mike Louderilk have produced a song titled “I’m Just Sayin’,” which is a critique on wokeness writ large.
The song was performed by up-and-coming star Austin Moody, with the song being released on Thursday. The first verse and the chorus read as follows:
They’ve torn Portland all to pieces, let Chicago go to hell
There’s people leaving New York City like they rang the fire bell
They call themselves enlightened but cancel those who don’t agree
I wish all these folks who claim they’re woke would just go back to sleep
I’m just sayin’ Have we all lost our minds?
I’m just sayin’ where do we draw the line
I know y'all think it takes balls to be singing what I’m singing
But I’m just singing what you’re thinking
Here’s the full version of the song:
If that’s not an anthem for conservatives these days, I don’t know what is.
Varble said that a big reason why he wanted to write the song was because he believes it does not make sense that all of culture is trying to please a relatively small portion of the population. He has also seen wokeness affect Nashville, which is considered a fairly conservative city.
“Nashville in the last couple of decades, it’s been turning a little more to the left,” Varble said. “I don’t have a problem with any of these people — I mean we’re all Americans, right? But when they force their stuff on us — that’s the whole thing. It’s a very small percentage of the population, these woke folks — they try to tell you who to love, how to feel. It don’t feel right.”
Varble couldn’t be more accurate. More Americans should draw a firm line in the sand and not embrace anything modern progressives believe in, since whatever progressives touch ends up getting ruined.
Many Americans likely believe this to be true, but are afraid to say it out loud. Thankfully, Varble said it for us.
