Big & Rich’s John Rich is angry at Nashville’s Mayor John Cooper and he has taken to social media to share his grievances.

Rich Tweeted recently, “The Mayor of Nashville @JohnCooper4Nash has shut down every bar in town for at least the next two weeks, so if you booked a flight or hotel room in anticipation of visiting Music City and enjoying Broadway, you need to cancel your reservations. #HeadsUp has turned to social media repeatedly to criticize Nashville Mayor John Cooper after Nashville made the decision to shut down bars in downtown Nashville for an additional two weeks in response to spikes in COVID-19.”

Rich owns a bar and music venue in downtown Music City called Redneck Riviera.

He again turned to Twitter on Wednesday (July 15) to vent his frustration with what he says is unfair treatment after the Mayor visited a restaurant in Nashville.
