While I was working out this morning, I was startled by a song that came on my MP3 player. I’d forgotten that I transferred it there.
It was “Takin’ My Country Back” recorded by the Honky Tonkers For Truth. (I suggest reading the story, but definitely scroll down to read the song lyrics. The MP3 doesn’t appear to be downloadable anymore, sadly.) And it made me awfully sad.
I sure hope someone figures out a way to get a pro-peace, pro-hope, pro-USA country song on the radio. I’d love to be part of making it happen, but the missing piece seems to be a big-name star to record it. (Well, and then radio folks who’ll play it.) I’m tired of all the Toby Keith propaganda where being “Ameri-CUN” is presented as equivalent to being proud of any war the US happens to participate in, no matter the reason or lack thereof.
