Earl Scruggs anti Vietnam War action

From Wikepedia:

On November 15, 1969, Scruggs played his Grammy-winning “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” on an open-air stage in Washington, D.C., at the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam, becoming one of the very few bluegrass or country-western artists to give support to the anti-war movement.[8] In an interview after his performance, Scruggs said:[9]

I think the people in the South is just as concerned as the people that’s walkin’ the streets here today … I’m sincere about bringing our boys back home. I’m disgusted and in sorrow about the boys we’ve lost over there. And if I could see a good reason to continue, I wouldn’t be here today.
