A new song recently hit #1 on the country music charts.
If you haven’t heard it, that’s because it has yet to hit mainstream radio.
And when you listen to the song, you’ll instantly know why.
The song is called ‘Am I The Only One,’ the newest release from former Staind singer Aaron Lewis.

The acoustic ballad released by Lewis has created a firestorm for its proud conservative lyrics that mock liberalism.
In the song, Lewis addresses burning the American flag, tearing down statues, and far-left musician Bruce Springsteen.
Despite not airing on country radio (yet), the hit has soared to #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Of course, this anthem doesn’t sit well with liberals who have a seething hatred for the United States.
Just wait until radio stations pick up the song across the country.
That’s when you’ll really see far-left pundits pitch a fit about the pro-conservative song.
Here’s the lyrical video (explicit):
Far-left music industry hacks already want the song banned.
Digital Music News reported on critic Bob Lefsetz and his outrage over the hit song:
‘Am I The Only One’ is one of the more controversial songs to emerge this year — and one of the most successful. Now, music industry critic Bob Lefsetz is demanding that Big Machine Label Group drop Aaron Lewis based on the content of the just-released song. Aaron Lewis is signed to Valory Music Co., an imprint owned by Big Machine.
“It’s HEINOUS!” Lefsetz wrote. “This middle class, right wing wanker has recorded a song that should have been played at CPAC, in between speeches by nitwits like Lauren Boebert saying to refuse the ‘Fauci ouchie.’”
“Why does Valory release such crap,” Lefsetz continued. “Come on [Big Machine CEO] Scott Borchetta, David Geffen dropped the Geto Boys over their odious lyrics and now you’re marketing this junk?”
“Come on Scott, get your head out of your rear end. How much money are you gonna make here anyway, and it is all about the money at this point, right?”
For those that haven’t listened to the song yet, ‘Am I The Only One’ is a conservative take on the current state of America, one that criticizes tearing down statues and the left-leaning Bruce Springsteen (among other things). The track has just entered Billboard’s country chart at number one, and MRC Data has tracked more than 4 million streams of the track in the past week alone. And that’s before the track goes to country radio.
Now, Big Machine Label Group CEO Scott Borchetta is responding to Lefsetz — and flatly refusing to drop the artist.
“To just ‘cancel’ (drop) Aaron is ridiculous and I’m disappointed that you would even suggest such a thing,” Borchetta responded late Friday. “Comparing Aaron Lewis to the Ghetto Boys? That’s a reach and a half. You don’t have to agree or acknowledge, but Aaron’s message is speaking to millions of people. Let it be a wake up call to Reps and Dems alike – be loud and be heard!”
Borchetta also defending Aaron Lewis on First Amendment grounds, while refusing to interfere with artist messaging. “Firstly, I believe in the First Amendment,” Borchetta relayed. “My job has never been to tell my artists what to sing and write about. My job has always been about identifying unique talent with a unique voice and a unique point of view.”
“Aaron Lewis and I have political disagreements. But there are also things we agree on. I think that’s the foundation for the idea of our country. It doesn’t work if we’re so divided that we can’t reach across the aisle, have a conversation or an argument, and ultimately, shake hands. If we can’t do that, and this moment is so divisive, we may never get our country back.”
Breitbart also reported:
Lewis’ song, “Am I the Only One,” soared to number one on the country charts despite getting no radio airtime. The song is very pro-America and slams liberals, including rock star Bruce Springsteen, for their anti-American ideas.
Some of the lyrics include, “Am I the only one who can’t take no more/Screamin’ ‘If you don’t like it, there’s the fuckin’ door,’” Lewis sings. He adds that he is willing to “take a bullet for being free.” And he also dings Springsteen with this line: “Am I the only one who quits singin’ along/Every time they play a Springsteen song?”
Borchetta notes that while he approves of his label’s release of Lewis’ flag-waving song, his label has also produced music by hard-core left-winger Sheryl Crow, who released a pro-Kamala Harris song in 2020.
“At the Big Machine Label Group,” Borchetta wrote, “we represent artists as diverse as Sheryl Crow singing ‘Woman In The White House’ to Aaron Lewis singing ‘Am I The Only One’ to Ray Wylie Hubbard to Tim McGraw to Thomas Rhett to Glen Campbell to Nikki Sixx/Rob Zombie/John5 (L.A. Rats) to Brantley Gilbert to Justin Moore to Florida Georgia Line to Brett Young to Lady A to Ayron Jones to Callista Clark and many more.”
