Yesterday (Jan. 6) a mob of Pro-Trump protesters stormed the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., as Congress began counting the Electoral College votes.
Chaos and violence ensued, as demonstrators broke through barricades and entered the Capitol building, putting the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives into lockdown.
Now, several country music artists are speaking out about the violence on social media:
A terribly sad day for America, a terribly sad day for leadership.

I’m really glad I got to write a great song with great friends today. That’s about the only part of it that has been great. I’m not political ever… but I’m pretty disheartened by some of the things that have happened in the country I live in today. DC especially.

Today is gonna be hard to shake. Something my WW2 fighting Paw-Paw never told me about, something my parents never had to go through… thinking about how I will tell my son about this one day.

Been staring at this empty tweet box for too long at a loss for words. Figured posting that would say enough in itself.

Spot on man. I can’t stomach the “disbelief” anymore. I have zero surprise left in me. https://t.co/5wBSLpBVFC

there is no, never has been, and never will be justification for an American President to incite violence.
but that is exactly what happened yesterday.
to deny this would be to deny reality.
there’s much more to address, but first we must get on the same page with this fact.
