The large billboards are hard to miss throughout the city.

Checkered and bright red in color, Wallen's supporters' message is clear.

"The Fans Are Speaking / Enough Is Enough," they read, adding, "Music Industry, We Want to Be Heard!"

And if anyone has questions on who spearheaded the movement, look no further than the bottom of the billboards.

"Paid for by Darleen Ingram and loyal fans" is branded on the bottom of the large statements.

It's no surprise, the billboards also include the Bible verse Mark 11:25, which states, "And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

The timing is no coincidence.

Wallen has been banned from this Wednesday's CMT Music Awards following a January incident where he dropped the n-word.

Earlier this year, a video circulated showing the country singer hurling profanities at friends while outside his Nashville home. The group returned to the house around midnight after partying and were extremely loud.

Wallen can be heard telling one of his friends to "take care of this p-----ass n----."

The country singer swiftly apologized but the damage was already done.

After the video made the rounds, he was dropped by radio stations and his talent agency. Wallen was also banned from attending award shows like the CMTs.

While he clearly still has supporters, others are angered over the billboards, claiming they are just as racist as Wallen's slur.

"You want to be heard? Doing what? Screaming the N-word? Trust me, we already hear you," one person shared on social media, including a photo of the billboard.

"There’s only two reasons that you would defend some white guy yelling the N-word in the street, AGAIN. You are either a racist, or you are a racist. And they funded seven of these in Nashville this week. # NowYouKnow," they added.
