Willie Jones claps back at haters who say his music is not country

Willie Jones is content with his music.

Ahead of his debut album Right Now, the singer decided to release a two-minute clip where he addresses all those critics who say that his music is not country.

"To the critics who say that my music isn't country music, I say 'I don't give a damn,'" he said.

"To live with the Right Now state of mind is to just be present and be thankful for the moment," he said. "I named the album Right Now because I just wanted the statement of just being grounded. This moment is all we had. Can't go forward, can't jump back, just gotta be right here and that's what I try to maintain."

"They are rockstars in their own right. If you're getting put up against bulls and horses, you have to love that," he said. "And I love what I do and I like to have a good time doing it."

"You have to be brave to do something that's never been done. I go hard and cowboys and cowgirls go hard. And I am a cowboy, what you talking about," he said.
