Country musician John Rich emerged victorious in a legal battle against a concert promoter who filed a lawsuit against him after he canceled a performance at a venue that altered its policy regarding unvaccinated attendees during the pandemic.
On Thursday, the 49-year-old country singer-songwriter and musician, shared the news with his numerous Twitter followers.
“During the lockdowns, I stated I’d NEVER play a concert venue that forced fans to show their ‘papers’ for entry concerning COVID,” Rich tweeted.
“One venue added that rule after I agreed to play, so I cancelled it,” the country star continued. “The promoter sued me. He LOST the case today! Happy to say I never bent the knee.”

John Rich, known for his conservative views, has been vocal about his opposition to lockdowns and vaccine mandates. He has also been particularly critical of Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's top medical advisor and head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
When Dr. Anthony Fauci announced his resignation from his role in the federal government in December, Rich was among those who responded.
Fauci has resigned. I'm guessing it's so he has time to prepare with his lawyers for his appearance at the 2023 Nuremberg Code trials.
