After Sony Music Nashville chairman and CEO Gary Overton gave an interview to the The Tennessean where he shared, in part, that for country artists "If you're not on country radio, you don't exist," country artist Charlie Robison has responded to the record executive's comments.

Robison posted a lengthy Facebook message, directed at Overton, that at one point inadvertently brought Florida Georgia Line into the conversation.

"I was signed by Warner bros, and Sony during the days I had the patience to smile while ignorant pencil pushing,mullet headed expense account rapists like you ran those labels," Robison wrote in the post published on Feb. 27. "I'm on the road right now and just finished putting on a show for the folks in Shreveport. That's a town u call a blip on ur screen."



In his message to the record executive, he later mentions Florida Georgia Line while giving his take on the current state of the business from his point-of-view.

"I spent so many years in Nashville watching you ignorant wastes of space sit behind your big desk and act like me and all the the Texas/Red dirt artists don't exist," he wrote. "Well Mr. ''I have a job today but as soon as Florida/Georgia line goes out of style,and believe me dumbass they will,you will not exist.'"

Since he shared that Facebook post, the chart-topping duo responded on Twitter.


Shortly after Florida Georgia Line responded on social media, Robison took to Twitter as well.
