Most if not all patriotic, pro-America songs coming out of the music industry stem from one specific genre: Country music. So it’s no surprise that a country artist would perform a song that slams those among us who take a knee during the national anthem.
The song, which artist Neal McCoy notes was written by his friend, is titled “Take A Knee – My Ass” (I Won’t Take A Knee) was performed in front of a small group of people on October 8th. It was also shared via Facebook Live where it quickly went viral.
“When I see someone on TV take their stand by bending their knee, whether it be on astro turf or grass,” he sings. “I think of those whose freedom was not free, and I say: ‘Take a knee – my ass!’”
The reason McCoy will always proudly stand for the national anthem? The Armed Forces.
“I’ve been on 15 USO tours,” he said. “I’ve entertained our troops in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and all over the world.”
“So, no, this is not a money grab,” he continued. “This is a guy that believes in our country, that does not like people kneeling, not standing with their hands over their hearts, for the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. That’s what I’m about.”
