Former Journey frontman Steve Perry recently took to Twitter to say he has not given permission to any political candidates to use “Don’t Stop Believin'” in their campaigns.

“As one of the songwriters of ‘Don’t Stop Believin’,’ I have not given permission to any political candidate to use this song!” he tweeted.

Perry tweeted his objection after the song was played at President Donald Trump’s stop at Mt. Rushmore, as the president was flying to the site on Marine One. However, the singer has not specified the reason for his objection.

Perry’s former bandmate Neal Schon responded to the tweet, writing, “Huh .., funny when I tried to stop it before a couple of years ago management told me you and Lee Phillips didn’t want to mess with it… @NealSchonMusic so what makes it different now?”

Country music and southern rock legend Charlie Daniels passed away of a hemorrhagic stroke Monday morning at the age of 83.

A statement from Daniels’ representatives said the Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member died at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee.

“An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor, and a true road warrior, Daniels parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children, and others in need,” the statement added.

A number of country stars responded to the news on social media, with Travis Tritt saying, “My heart is crushed today after hearing that my dear friend Charlie Daniels has passed away.”

“Just when I thought 2020 couldn’t break my heart anymore… Charlie Daniels you will always be an American hero. Rest In Peace sir,” added Blake Shelton.
