Country music songwriter Wynn Varble has written hits for some of the industry’s biggest stars, including Garth Brooks, Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley, and Kellie Pickler. Over a long and prolific career, he has penned multiple No.1 hits including Darryl Worley’s 9/11-themed ballad “Have You Forgotten?,” which was a popular smash and a Billboard chart topper in 2013.
Varble’s latest single is “I’m Just Sayin’,” an ode to common-sense thinking and plain speaking in the face of the woke tide taking over American culture. Co-written with Mike Loudermilk for rising star Austin Moody, the song articulates in a what people are secretly thinking but are too afraid to say in public. They include culture-war subjects such as crime causing the collapse of major cities, university indoctrination, and the transgender movement’s targeting of children.
In an interview Monday with Breitbart News’ editor-in-chief Alex Marlow on Sirius XM Patriot 125’s Breitbart News Daily, Varble spoke about how he’s sustained country songwriting success, why he wrote “I’m Just Sayin,‘” and the woke culture he sees coming to his native Tennessee.
Varble warned that over the past couple of decades, Nashville has been sliding to the left.
“We got to talking about all this woke stuff and how it’s just tearing this whole country apart and we just wrote it,” he said of the newly-released song.
Below are the beginning lyrics of the song:
They’ve torn Portland all to pieces, let Chicago go to hell
There’s people leaving New York City like they rang the fire bell
They call themselves enlightened but cancel those who don’t agree
i wish all these folks who claim they’re woke would just go back to sleep
I’m just sayin’ Have we all lost our minds?
I’m just sayin’ where do we draw the line
I know ya’ll think it takes balls to be singing what I’m singing
But I’m just singing whaat you’re thinking
