Break-out country star Oliver Anthony has released a new song titled “90 Some Chevy”.
His new song is not political at all compared to his breakout hit “Rich Men North of Richmond” and is more of a country love song.
Less than 24 hours after uploading his new song on YouTube, Oliver Anthony received over 500,000 views and is on pace to reach over 1 million views by Sunday.

Here’s what the Washington Examiner reported:
Musician Oliver Anthony released his latest single on Saturday, complete with a music video featuring a handgun.
The latest song, titled “90 Some Chevy,” seems to be a love song devoted to a woman who is likened to the classic American truck because, as the lyrics go, “she rides just right when you turn her on.” In the music video released to YouTube, Anthony is seen driving a Chevy, and the camera briefly pans to the passenger seat, where a handgun rests.
The video had over 50,000 views as of noon Saturday, just hours after being released. It will be available on Apple’s music streaming platform by the end of the day and other platforms in a few days, according to the musician.
Anthony is from Farmville, Virginia, which is part of the state’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) since 2020. His personal politics have largely been speculated as he clarified in a previous YouTube video it was “aggravating seeing people on conservative news try to identify with me like I’m one of them.”
Another song of Anthony’s got airtime during the Republican presidential debate hosted by the Republican National Committee and Fox News in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It opened with Anthony’s “Rich Men North of Richmond” chorus, which was his first hit but also popularized his other songs.

Rapidly rising country-folk singer Oliver Anthony has released a music video for his newest single “90 Some Chevy,” following the success of his breakout viral song “Rich Men North of Richmond,” which currently tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week since its Aug. 17 debut.
The “90 Some Chevy” video begins in a very similar manner to the “Rich Men North of Richmond” video, with Anthony performing the song alone in a leafy forest with just his guitar in hand. The lyrics of the acoustic country song liken a romantic interest to a 1990s Chevrolet — “That old darlin’ of mine is like a 90 some Chevy / She rides just right when you turn her on / The only thing that sounds better than that old 350 is when she’s running up to kiss me when I get home.”
The music video shifts when it begins to intersperse scenes of Anthony driving in a Chevy along a road at sunset. Notably, for a brief moment, the video cuts to show a handgun in the passenger seat of his car. Anthony is from Virginia, an open carry state; although the scene passes quickly, the weapon is obviously displayed.
"Rich Men North of Richmond" singer Oliver Anthony (@AintGottaDollar) brands himself as “poor White trash” in latest well-produced music video set in the woods.
